Give monthly to TEAR Australia's General Funds to help us commit to and support our partners' work into the future. You'll receive a subscription to our Target Magazine, which helps you to do deeper into the issues from a biblical perspective.
Keeping our supporters informed is a high priority for TEAR Australia. That's because we believe helping Christians in Australia understand the realities of global poverty, and letting this knowledge shape their lives and faith, is as significant as our development work.
TEAR Update monthly (email) - with news of events, advocacy, prayer points and updates from projects.
TEAR News quarterly (print) - featuring short updates from overseas partners and supporters in Australia, news and events.
Target Magazine twice per year (print) - featuring in-depth, news and views on development and justice, a Bible study, lifestyle reflections, advocacy, financial updates and supporter news.
Annual Statement, of your tax-deductible donations, posted at the end of each financial year.
TEAR is committed to keeping spending on printing as low as possible. Each copy of Target Magazine costs less than $1 to produce. We see this as an investment in helping our supporters encounter the realities of global poverty while enabling the voiceless to tell their stories.
10 Reasons why you should be a TEAR Partner
Being a TEAR Australia Partner is the most effective way to fight poverty we know. Here's why:
There are no quick fixes when it comes to poverty. Long-term sustainable change takes long-term commitment.
Your regular giving will help TEAR be good partners to our overseas partners, enabling us to effectively plan and budget as we support their poverty-fighting work into the future.
An emergency appeal helps address a crisis. Partnership addresses the ongoing crises that don't make our TV screens - like infant mortality, dirty water and malnutrition - that have just as high a toll.
A Useful Gift makes a fantastic present for a special occasion. Partnership keeps giving 365 days a year.
Your giving will be used where it's needed most - among the most vulnerable and marginalised, supporting programs that aren't always fashionable in places that aren't in the news.
Partnership is about stewardship - an acknowledgment that our wealth isn't ours but God's.
Partnership means putting the last first. It's acknowledging that the amount we share with a word in need shouldn't be based on what's left after we've spent all we want.
By donating monthly by direct debit or credit card, you're reducing TEAR's administration costs and maximising the impact of your gift.
Your gifts are tax-deductible - you'll receive a statement of your donations for that financial year each July.
Finally, being a Partner is about more than giving. TEAR's Target Magazine will help inform and challenge you as you live, pray and speak out for justice in solidarity with the world's poor and in obedience to God's call.
