How you can help
KALP receives limited Queensland Government funding which covers basic service costs for participants. We rely on fundraising for all of the other things required to keep operating, such as a building and maintenance, operational costs, program fees, equipment and materials, staff development, transport and administration staff costs. Applying for grants is a part of this process.
committed to developing KALP into a long term sustainable service through innovative
fundraising, and development of social business to support our goals. Our
participants and their families are our primary focus, and we want to be able
to provide them with the best support possible - one of the reasons we started
There are many ways to support us:
Become a member
We would love to build our KALP community by growing our membership base.
Membership is just $25 a year, and is tax deductible. Membership runs on a calendar year. Your fees cover your right to vote at the AGM, the opportunity to have a voice on our management committee or in the KALP community, and most of all to stay connected and be a part of the growing KALP community. You will receive regular newsletters and updates about what is happening at KALP.
NB: All parents and carers of participants are required to have current membership.
We are always looking for volunteers, whether regularly in a support worker
role, offering professional skills, running programs, helping with maintenance
and upkeep on the building, cooking a sausage at a fundraising sausage sizzle,
giving some time at our fundraising canteen or in any way you can contribute.
Please let us know if you have skills, enthusiasm and some spare time you
can share with us. The rewards are great - for you and for us!
If you have equipment or materials we could use, that you don't need anymore, in good working order - we would love to hear from you! We also accept donations of quality goods we may be able to sell to raise funds for KALP. Please contact us to discuss.

deductible gift recipient status, meaning all donations over $2 are tax
