Support us

so we can keep caring for the kids at Allowah

Allowah has been caring for children with complex medical needs and disabilities for almost 70 years.

There is nowhere else like Allowah.

Dear friends,

As you know, in April this year it became apparent that our internal resources would likely be depleted before we could rebuild admissions and programs to a sustainable level. We launched a fundraising campaign with the aim of raising $2m to keep our doors open. We have now received over $930,000 in donations which is just amazing! We have also seen our programs reopen with new children attending and old ones returning, which has decreased our expected operating loss for this year. Added to that, we have received $148,000 in government grants with another $90,000 on the way. We are not quite to the $2m we need but… 

All this adds up and means that Allowah can keep going into 2023!

We are so thankful to each and every one of you who have worked with us to raise the funds we need. We are also loving seeing more children about the place… so much noise and fun!

The struggle for Allowah is not over. Without your incredible support we would not have made it through 2022, and we will need your support in 2023. We are going to need you to keep supporting us; through sharing our social media posts, by telling your friends about Allowah, by writing to politicians when we need you to, by spreading the word however you can, through fundraising and through donations. And we will keep working to build a sustainable future for Allowah. One of our hopes is that in 2023 we will be able to establish an Allowah Foundation that will lay the groundwork for financial security long into the future.
Thank you for getting us this far. Your support means the world to us. And thank you for your commitment to continuing to walk beside us into the future.
Kind regards,
