Tax Time Appeal 2021
It’s tax time! If you are looking for a last minute tax deduction that can help make a difference, why not make a donation to Powerchair Sports Victoria? Under the name Victorian Electric Wheelchair Sports Association we are registered as a charity with the Australian Charities and Not-for-Profits Commission ABN: 54 171 697 981 and in 2000 became endorsed as a Deductible Gift Recipient.
For over 30 years, we have provided sporting opportunities to people who use powerchairs for functional mobility. Despite our 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 his/her carer).
With support from our wonderful partners and 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, modifications to powerchair guards, taking the sports to more areas around Victoria and/or transport to events.
Help us make a difference and create more opportunities for people to participate in powerchair sports. Any donation big or small will be greatly appreciated.
