Some donors leave bequests as a way of honouring or remembering a loved one who has been supported by Footprints Community.

Need help wording your bequest?

Here is some suggested wording:

I give and bequeath free of all duties to Footprints Community Limited, 24 Light Street, Fortitude Valley QLD 4006, for its general purposes, the following:

[Please include your bequest option here, for example, the residue of my estate, a percentage of my estate (after you look after loved ones and family members), a specific sum of money or specific items.]

I declare that an authorised receipt from Footprints Community Limited will be a sufficient discharge for the Executor.

Volunteers are an integral part of all of our programs at Footprints. It is always our intention to match our volunteers with an area where they have existing skills, or an area where they feel they can make a difference. If there’s something that you’d like to do, and it’s not listed, please get in touch.

Where You Can Use Your Skills

There are many programs within Footprints and many ways in which we can utilise the skills you offer. Some of these are listed right, but please complete the form, or contact us and we would love to speak to you more about how you could make a difference.

There are so many benefits to getting your organisation to give back to the community and some of these include:
• Improved community perception and related marketing opportunities
• Creation of culture of caring, empathy and community awareness
• Networking and word of mouth opportunities through community links
• Improved moral and motivation
• Bridging the gap between company and community (Volunteers Qld, 2017)

If you are interested in participating in a corporate volunteering program, we would be really happy for you to join us.

Footprints holds some key community events throughout the year that require the help of volunteers and the kind donations from the community, whether financial, or in kind.

These events are usually promoted through our social media channels:

So please follow our social media to see how you can help, or contact us direct.

Thank you for the opportunity. I appreciate the professionalism, formal interview process and training. It has been a very supportive, friendly and rewarding experience. I was telling my Mum recently I wake up happier and more motivated coming to Footprints than when I was going to my paid job.
