Our chosen local charities for this Financial Year’s mission to “give back”
Giving isn’t just for the receiver, as we also take a lot of pride and joy from giving support to others in our community and the world at large.
That doesn’t just mean giving our clients more value than they might expect, but giving back in powerful and impacting ways – ways that really ‘connect’.
This financial year, we are starting a local charity initiative, whereby every client lodging their tax return with Wardles will be given a coin which can be deposited into one of three jars representing local charities. Each coin will represent $1, which we will tally up and donate to the respective charities as the busy tax time winds down. The aim is so that for every tax return lodged means $1 donated to a worthy cause.
The below chosen groups do some really amazing things within our community, and we are so excited to support them this financial year.
