Donate online

There are a number of ways you can support OC Connections and our work within the community. All donations of $2 or more are tax deductible.

OC Connections is a not-for-profit organisation. We rely on community support to supplement the many services and programs we provide to people, and their families. We are committed to services that enable all those with disabilities to live active lives with dignity and independence.

Money raised through our annual appeals and fundraising events goes towards vital services and programs not covered by government funding. Without this money, many participants simply wouldn’t have access to the necessary equipment or assistance that can make the world of difference to their quality of life.

Your support is greatly appreciated! And just to show you how much, a few of our people got together to say ‘thank you’.

Where the money will go

OC Connections wants to create as many possibilities as we can to bring dignity and independence to people with disability by providing them with access to supports that assist them to live independently and to actively engage in their communities.

In the past, money raised through donations has gone towards:

  • Electrically adjustable beds to assist those who have difficulty getting in and out of bed
  • Exercise bikes to help people exercise in the safety of their own home
  • Computer touch screens for those with poor vision and/or hand-eye coordination to have access to a whole new world of visual experiences
  • Personal wheelchairs to give greater independence and community access.

Your valuable contribution (great or small) is much appreciated and will be added to the OC Achieve Fund to be used to provide people with the opportunities to achieve their goals from assistive technology through to support to gain employment. A tax-deductible receipt will be provided to you for donations over $2.

What is the OC Achieve Fund?

We all have goals and dreams, some small some big. By giving generously to the OC Achieve fund you can help an individual achieve their own personal goals.

Your donation will go directly towards:
