We have compiled a list of FAQs below to make sure you have all the information you need to select your special gift.
A Global Gift is a gift that delivers twice the joy, and packs double the impact.
When you give a Global Gift, you spread the joy of giving to your family and friends and help vulnerable communities to break the cycle of poverty.
The lowest price available is based on the cost of the featured gift.
If you would like to extend the reach of your donation so that more vulnerable people can be supported by our community-led development programs, you can select one of the higher prices, or purchase multiple gifts.
Printed cards are currently unavailable so there are no shipping costs.
At this stage, we do not offer international shipping for Global Gifts.
When you donate to Caritas Australia, you can be assured that your contribution goes to where the need is greatest. We pride ourselves on having one of the lowest administration rates in the sector.
We value transparency and want our supporters to have as much information as they need to feel confident that their donation is making a real difference.
The funds are split three ways:
e-card: a digital e-card is a card that is sent electronically via email. When you select this option, you can write a personalised message during the checkout process and we will send it to your chosen loved one. Our digital e-cards are not suitable for printing.
When you select the option of purchasing a digital e-card, you can select the date that you want the e-card to be sent to you or your loved one.
You will also receive a receipt of your chosen gift via email.
Yes, you can. When you click on a particular gift, simply select ‘No card (Donation)' in the dropdown menu underneath ‘Type of card’ and continue to the Checkout page.
Yes, all gifts and donations are tax-deductible and will be listed on your tax statement at the end of the financial year.
Of course! You can purchase and send as many gifts as you like for your family and friends – there is no limit.
Global Gifts represent a donation to Caritas Australia and we are unable to offer refunds if you change your mind.
