Victorian funding update

Tuesday 6 November 2007

ME/CFS Australia (Victoria)Over the past 12 months ME/CFS Australia (Victoria) has been successful in obtaining funds from philanthropic trusts and others to assist the Society in providing much needed assistance to those with ME/CFS.

We would like to acknowledge the generosity of the following supporters:

Tattersall’s George Adams Foundation

JT Reid Charitable Trust

Jack Brockhoff Foundation

Andrews Foundation

Lord Mayor’s Charitable Fund

Fred P Archer Charitable Trust

Dame Elisabeth Murdoch AC DBE

Marion R Stobo Charitable Fund

Estate of the late DE Bowe

Estate of the late JA Harper

Estate of BL Walker Deceased

Federal Govt Volunteer Small Equipment Grant

The largest project ever undertaken by ME/CFS Australia (Victoria) will be the newly funded Care and Crisis Support Service (CCSS). More news will be circulated to our members as it becomes available. Particularly exciting for those where no formal state society currently exists, to apply for funding is that we have been able to obtain funding with specific components for assistance in Tasmania and Northern Territory.

Other projects we have been able to undertake include the Link Up project which still rates as an important communication tool to our members and the replacement of outdated and faulty furniture and equipment in the office to accord with OHS. We will be able to replace the outdated phone system and the obsolete computers with state of the art systems. We will shortly be able to begin the “On the Move” project albeit in a modified form until additional funding is obtained. We have also been able to purchase a new postage meter which will immediately reduce our postage costs by 2.5% and means that volunteers don’t have to continually take parcels such as library books to the post office.
