All donations over $2 are tax deductible and a receipt is provided. NSW Ambulance can accept donations and bequests from individuals, companies and other organisations.

Where the money goes

By donating or leaving a bequest to NSW Ambulance you could be part of educating the community on life saving skills. While government funding is utilised for the provision of emergency care and retrieval services, saving lives goes beyond treating and transporting patients. Another important facet of NSW Ambulance is the provision of community safety and prevention programs for both the public and staff.

A ‘general' donation enables NSW Ambulance to use the donation for whatever purpose it believes is most appropriate. A ‘specific' donation has conditions outlining the specific spending of the funds such as education programs or funds to be spent to benefit a specific NSW community.

Bequests

If you would like to make a bequest and already have a Will, you can update it to include NSW Ambulance. If you haven't yet made a Will, you can include your bequest when you do. Like a donation, you can make a general or specific bequest.

To make a Will visit a solicitor or The Public Trustee or you can use a trustee company. If you don't know of a solicitor ask your family or friends for a recommendation. Details for the NSW Trustee & Guardian are ph: 1300 364 103 or visit their website at www.tag.nsw.gov.au

For additional information about making a donation or a bequest contact the Manager, Community Relations on 9320 7795 or email community@ambulance.nsw.gov.au
