Save a life today

Little Oak Sanctuary relies entirely on donations to fund our life saving work. 

 

All funds raised go directly to caring for rescued and vulnerable animals, and advocating for their kind.

Our regular donors are the life blood of Little Oak Farm Animal Sanctuary, ensuring a regular flow of funds that allow us to feed and care for the 180+ animals in our care at any one time.  Together, with your ongoing support, every day, year after year, we help animals in need, animals who without us, would have nowhere else to go.

One off donations are also welcome and are integral to supporting our vital work for animals.

 

Donations over $2 are tax deductible. At the end of the financial year you'll receive a statement to assist you with your tax return.

Planning your Legacy - leaving a gift in your will


Gifts in Wills A gift in your Will is a simple and powerful way to provide ongoing support to the causes you are passionate about. Types of gifts There are many ways you can leave a gift in your Will. A solicitor or other qualified professional can help you make the choice that’s right for you. Some options include: Residuary bequest A gift of whatever is left of your estate (or a percentage thereof) after you have made gifts to family and friends. As it is not a specific amount of money, it keeps its value regardless of inflation. Pecuniary bequest This is a gift of a set dollar amount determined by you at the time of making or changing your Will. Specific bequest A gift of a specific item, such as property or shares. Suggested wording: Residuary bequest I give ______ percent of the residue of my estate to Little Oak Sanctuary Incorporated of GPO Box 2116 CANBERRA ACT 2601 for its general purposes and the receipt of the Chairperson, Treasurer, Secretary or the Public Officer for the time being will be an absolute discharge to my executor. Pecuniary bequest I give $______ to Little Oak Sanctuary Incorporated of GPO Box 2116 CANBERRA ACT 2601 for its general purposes and the receipt of the Chairperson, Treasurer, Secretary or the Public Officer for the time being will be an absolute discharge to my executor. Specific bequest I give [describe asset accurately] to Little Oak Sanctuary Incorporated of GPO Box 2116 CANBERRA ACT 2601 for its general purposes and the receipt of the Chairperson, Treasurer, Secretary or the Public Officer for the time being will be an absolute discharge to my executor. Organisation details Once you have decided on the type of gift you wish to leave, your solicitor or other qualified professional will need the following legal details. Legal name: Little Oak Sanctuary Incorporated

ABN: 13 957 855 464

Address: GPO Box 2116 CANBERRA ACT (If you require our street address please email us)




Support a major project


​Regular donors and one off donations keep our residents fed, happy and healthy, but for major projects, our progress is limited by contributions that we receive above and beyond our baseline operational costs. If you are keen to make a major contribution let us know, below are the types of projects on our "to do" list, if they sound like something you'd like to support, please drop us a line, we're keen to discuss how we can show our appreciation to you or your organisation! Help us build a bridge - $25,000 Major contributions are sought to help us build a bridge over the creek to the sanctuary. Currently we are limited in who can access the sanctuary due to having to navigate a low level crossing. This major project would allow all weather 2 wheel drive access making it so much easier for school and community groups to visit us and make connections with the animals. Replacement Tractor - $60,000 Our current tractor, Charlie, is a 1961 Chamberlain, and whilst he's done us proud up to now, he lacks the power and reliability (who can blame him he's not as spritely as he once was) that we require to keep the paddocks and driveways in tip top shape. Solar Lighting for Stables & Visitors Centre Stage 2 - $15,000 A grant from Perpetual Impact successfully achieved in 2018provided electricity to the stables, feed shed or visitors centre site. Stage 2 will set up an off grid solar kit for our two house yard shelters, our office, printing room, workshop and power the electric fencing. Water Tanks - $12,000 Climate Change is real, and with tank & dam water being the only source of water for our residents we are looking to place a water tank off each of our animal shelters to capture the valuable liquid that falls from the sky! Additional Shelters - $12,000 In order for each of our existing paddocks to have a shelter, we need to construct 3 more, at around $4,000 each.
