Q: During this disaster can I get Dollars 4 Dollars for my local community organisation?
A: Our disaster relief partnership with GIVIT is designed to provide immediate assistance to people who need it most. When a disaster strikes in Queensland, we will make a special donation to that community on behalf of the Freemasons of Queensland through GIVIT. So there is no need for Lodges to raise funds to be matched through Dollars 4 Dollars. To ensure your local community can benefit through GIVIT, get your local community organisation to find out if they are eligible for support through GIVIT and register in advance. It’s free to register through www.givit.org.au/sign-up
Q: Can we donate as a Lodge?
A: Yes. If you are able to financially support GIVIT’s disaster relief and recovery efforts, you can donate to our Appeal. Remember to use the HHP FNQ or HHP SEQ reference when donating, either individually or as a Lodge.
Q: How do I connect someone in need with assistance?
A: If you know someone impacted by these floods please encourage them to seek support through their local community organisations. Most community organisations in the region who will be providing assistance in the aftermath of the disaster will already be registered with GIVIT, and will be well-placed to help Members and communities access what they need.
Q: How do I check if my local community organisation is eligible for support through GIVIT?
A: Check if your local community organisation is registered with GIVIT. If not encourage them to see if they are eligible, so that support made possible by our partnership with GIVIT can flow through to people in your community, in their time of need. Registration is free. Go to: www.givit.org.au/sign-up
