To provide our services, UnitingCare Community receives state and federal government funding, council grants and self-funds through our business activities including the Lifeline shops, clothing exports and rag sales. This substantial funding, combined with dedicated staff and passionate volunteers, gives UnitingCare Community extraordinary capacity to support individuals, families, youth, children and communities in need of our important community services.
Sophisticated and streamlined administrative support services including human resources, information technology, communications, fundraising, quality and practice, pay roll and financial services enable UnitingCare Community to provide our metropolitan, rural and regional teams across Queensland the opportunity to take advantage of the best support services possible; to offer our clients some of the best community and crisis care available in Australia; and guarantee our funders and donors administrative accountability, economy and a spirit of continuous improvement.
The organisation is currently expanding our fundraising activities with a focus on captivating generous financial donations, empowering individuals to fundraise their own way, motivating bequests, attracting trust and foundation grants and inspiring additional win-win corporate partnerships. Despite experiencing funding gaps across all our 160 programs, these fundraising activities still only form less than 1% of our overall income. By financially supporting UnitingCare Community, Queenslanders will be part of helping to build resilient communities and respond to crisis situations.
