Thanks to the generosity of this community we have raised
more than $150,000, which has allowed us to provide basic support for 4
families in this community, for 12 months each. When we officially "Parked the CARR", we indicated that we no longer needed to receive additional donations for our work.
Over the past number of months, further donations received through this website have been directed to
Perth & District Foundation's "Ageless Migration Fund", a new
legacy fund designed to provide additional support for refugees and
immigrants who come to live in the community.
When The CARR first started rolling, we initially thought that it would take an average of $30,000 a year to sponsor a refugee family. We reached out to the generosity of the community to achieve our objective of sponsoring up to four refugee families in the coming months and years. Fortunately, the well-respected Perth & District Community Foundation (PDCF) came to our aid and set up a fund to support The CARR. It provides tax receipts for all donations and professionally manages the funds, which are dedicated to the sponsorship of refugees as required. Out of these funds we have now covered the basic cost of supporting four families, each for 12 months, with assistance from the government for the first two. We have also been able to provide more limited financial assistance to two other newcomers to our community.
