How You Can Help

A Start in Life is a not-for-profit organisation. We receive no government funding and therefore very much depend on the generosity of individuals, corporations and community groups to help us to achieve our mission.

What your donation will achieve

Your donation will give a young person a start in life.

Because you care enough to donate you are ensuring that the barriers to education are removed. Your are empowering and equipping each student to break free from a difficult circumstance and in doing so you are making a positive difference for current and succeeding generations.

To find out more about the various different ways you can be involved, please contact us on (02) 9264 3017. 

Make regular Pledge donations

A Start in Life could not exist without the generosity of pledge givers. By spreading your donations over the year (through regular direct debit or credit card payments) you are providing us with a sustainable, reliable income. You can select how much you would like to donate and when (monthly or bi-annually). Your donation will automatically be deducted from your account or credit card. At the end of the financial year, you will receive one tax deductible receipt.

Your pledge allows our small team to:

  • Plan efficiently
  • Continue to provide long term support to the students we support
  • Increase our commitment by identifying other children who are in need

Student Sponsorship Program

The A Start in Life Student Sponsorship Program gives supporters an opportunity to help provide assistance to a financially disadvantaged Australian student.

Throughout the year sponsors will see a student’s progress through an update completed by the student and an Annual Student Report which covers progress details from their reports and from feedback from their parent or carer. Our newsletters also keep sponsors informed of other news and stories from the A Start in Life community.

Sponsorship starts from as little as $50.00 per month.

Please contact A Start in Life for more information on (02) 9264 3017.

Create a lasting legacy by leaving a gift in your will

For many reasons, we’re often not able to give as generously during our lives as we might want to. Leaving a gift in your will is a great way to support the vital work A Start in Life does. By making a gift through your will to A Start in Life you will be equipping Australia’s next generation with the skills and education needed to succeed.
