Support our Volunteers
All of our staff are full-time, self-funded volunteers, including our Managing Director! Each of our volunteers raise their own financial support outside of the organisation. This includes essential living expenses, outreach costs, and travel expenses.
Our staff include accountants, cooks, administrators, mariners, outreach leaders, medical personnel, trainers, housekeepers, program developers, communications officers, youth workers, and so many more! It truly does take a dedicated and diverse team to make what we do possible.
During the last 12 months alone, our volunteers donated time and labour was estimated at over 8.4 million AUD.
If you would like to make a donation to YWAM Townsville to support the volunteering expenses of a YWAM staff member with a one-off or monthly gift, simply donate online. If you have a particular staff member you would like to support, please include their name in the “recipient field”. For information on tax deductibility requirements, click here.
