Sacred Heart Mission is an innovative not-for-profit organisation providing individualised support and care services to people who are experiencing homelessness and disadvantage. We have developed a reputation as a respected and well-known social services provider that understands homelessness and uses creative, evidence-based solutions to address it.

It is only through the generosity of people like you that we can continue to provide vital services in your community. To find out more about how the individual services we offer, and the impact you can make, please visit our about page.

Sacred Heart Mission is funded through a combination of government funding and community support. The split is roughly 50% through local, state and federal funding and 50% through our op shops and fundraising activities. This varies slightly year on year, depending on government funding priorities.

All operation and overhead costs are wrapped up within individual program area budgets, and total cost associated with delivering each program can be found in our annual report. At Sacred Heart Mission, we understand our impact is the biggest measure of success, and we continuously work towards lowering internal spending while delivering the best possible service to the most marginalised people.

How Sacred Heart operates is on a cash flow basis, so any income received is spent on program areas, or (a small portion) invested through fundraising activities -- all with the goal of delivering our strategic goals. To give you an idea of the effectiveness of the fundraising done at Sacred Heart, in FY2016-17 for every $1 spent $4.70 was raised.

Yes, all charitable donations over $2 are tax deductible for Australian tax-payers.

Receipts will be provided via email for online donations, and via post for all other gifts. For monthly donations, one tax receipt covering the entire financial year, will be posted to you in July.

*All ticketed events, sale of goods, and services are not charitable donations.

Yes, donations that honour the lives of loved ones, or celebrate personal milestones through memorial, or celebratory gifts are a very special and meaningful way to give back to the community. Learn more about making gifts in honor or celebration.
