Collection notice

We may collect information in a number of ways: directly from you (for example, when you visit our website or contact us by telephone); from third parties (charitable fund account holders and giving accounts); and from fundraising events held by or on behalf of the Foundation.

We collect your personal information to enable us to process your donation, communicate with you about your donation and engage with you to inform you about our programs which we think you may be interested in. If you wish to remain anonymous or use a pseudonym when making a donation, you may do so by contacting us at or 03 9633 0033.

We may also use your information for direct marketing. This marketing may be by email, phone, post, or on line. You are entitled to opt out of direct marketing at any time.

Wherever possible, the Foundation uses your information in a de-identified form. Personal information will not be disclosed to third parties without your consent, except where permitted or required under the Privacy Act. We will not share personal information with third-party fundraisers. Sometimes, we may need to store or use your information in a country other than Australia because one of our technical software providers is located overseas (for instance, the United States of America).
