Our 2015 Challenge Appeal is off to a brilliant start. Twenty people have pledged to donate $100,000 if Benalla can match their donations

By August 17, 2015Latest, News

We are calling on the community to support our 2015 ‘Challenge’ Appeal which aims to raise $200,000 for the Community Fund. As the Community Fund grows, so does the income available for Benalla and district grants.

Donations from the public will be matched dollar for dollar, up to a total of $100,000, by twenty local people who have each committed up to $5,000 to the Appeal.

To realise the full generosity of the twenty supporters, we’re hoping the public appeal will raise at least $100,000 by 31 December 2015. In this way the whole matching $100,000 would be added to the Community Fund for the long term benefit of our community.

Donations are fully tax deductible.
