We are registered as a charity under Victorian Electric Wheelchair Sports Association with the Australian Charities and Not-for-Profits Commission ABN: 54 171 697 981 and in 2000 became endorsed as a Deductible Gift Recipient.
Despite Powerchair Sport Victoria’s important role in providing sporting and recreational opportunities for players with a disability and, our participation in national events, we receive very little financial support to cover our on-going costs. The majority of the costs of participating in the sports are covered by the athletes and their families. For example, specialised sports wheelchairs cost in excess of $15,000 and athletes have to pay for their own way to the national championships, which equates to an approximate additional expense of ($2,000 for an athlete and their carer).
With support from our wonderful sponsors, we are able to cover some of the costs for our athletes but it is not enough. Donations received could be used for much needed sports equipment, purchasing spare powerchairs for new players, modifications to powerchair guards, assisting players to national competitions and transport to events.
Help us make a difference and create more opportunities for our powerchair athletes. Any donation big or small will be greatly appreciated.
