Charities worth your time and money

The latest Australian budget has cut our national foreign aid budget again, so I’m putting my money where my mouth is and donating a larger part of my income. If you’re Australian, I can vouch for, and donate to, these:

  • Cure Cancer Australia: They directly fund medical researchers, and they don’t hire high-pressure chuggers like other funds regrettably do.

  • Global Development Group: You can choose to let them decide where your money goes each month. Causes include the World Food Programme and Syrian refugee assistance. This is where I’m spending most.

  • Guide Dogs NSW/ACT: I had no idea private donations are the bulk of their income. They should get more government funding, but here we are.

  • Heart Foundation: Cardio-vascular research, advocacy and assistance.

I’ll be adding to this list.
