Ways to Give

Managing Melrose Home requires a monthly average of about $170,000 for its operations.  About 55% of this cost is provided by the Ministry of Social & Family Development as a grant based on the number of children in residence.  A significant portion of the Home’s operational costs still needs to be funded by donations from corporations, organised groups and well-wishing individuals.

 

Support from donors is greatly appreciated so that we can continue to provide a nurturing ‘home away from home’ for the vulnerable children and youths in our care.

 

All volunteers and Committee members provide their services without any remuneration.
