How you can help

Mental health donations in Ballarat

We firmly believe that, with the right service for men, we can help reduce the rate of mental health problems and suicides in the Ballarat region. But we need your help.

Mental health donations in Ballarat, no matter how large or small, are welcomed by our team at Ballarat Men’s Mental Health.

We are a registered charity, so all individual donations are tax-deductible. You can check our status here.

Our Board is entirely voluntary. No director or associate will financially benefit from your donations.

Mental Health Donations in Ballarat

We have a target of $500,000 that will allow us to secure premises, if needed, engage a clinical leader/project manager and develop clinical resources. 

We hope that, as time progresses, both the State and Federal Governments will see the value in BMMH and help fund this much-needed service into the future.

How to make a donation

Individual

Individual / Personal / Small business

Individuals and businesses can make one-off donations or small, regular donations of just a few dollars per week. Those who donate on a regular basis will receive invitations to all our events. A ‘thank you’ plaque is also available if desired.

Workplace giving

Workplace Giving allows employees and employers to get involved and give back to the community via regular payroll donations and one-off fundraising events. Use your imagination! All participating businesses will be recognised on our website and will also receive a thank you plaque that can be displayed in recognition of your involvement with Ballarat Men’s Mental Health. Contributors will also be allocated a ticket to our golf day and similar events.

If you would like to have a discussion with our team about the donation options please get in touch.
