Fund Raising

All donations to HARS, $2 and over are tax-deductible.  As you can imagine, caring for Australia’s Aviation heritage is an expensive undertaking.  Nothing emphasizes this more than the changing airworthiness requirements we have been subjected to with one of our recent acquisitions that have delayed its arrival to join our other exhibits.

Whilst a bank transfer to our account is always welcome (email “HARSinfo” on our contact page for details), we have decided to try and personalise the donation process by endevouring to direct any indicated donations to areas of particular passion for people by highlighting projects from time to time.  Naturally we cannot guarantee this but we will try to fulfill the intent.

Our Navy Heritage Flight has some immediate projects that need your support.   Our first project is to move the Sea Fury to Albion Park.  This will require Government approvals owing to the outsize load and the expense for that will be approximately $1500.  Once this target is reached, then any additional funds will flow on to the Wessex Helicopter painting, which we anticipate will be approximately $1000.

Can you help?

Donation Procedure

Once you start the donation procedure,  you will be taken on to a “Rotary” account (HARS has partnered with the Rotary Club of Illawarra Sunrise to manage this “HARS” fund-raising – see the question / answer on the right for further explanation).  Paypal handles the credit card details and this is efficient, secure and easy.  If you don’t have a Paypal account, no problem – they simply take your credit card details.  You will be sent an email confirming the donation.

Web Browsers

It is a sad reality of the Internet experience that not all web browsers interpret web sites the same.  No matter how much Web Developers try, there is always a problem.  In our case, this is with our Donation forms.

Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge (Windows 10), and Safari (Apple) are fine.  Firefox is as well, however we had to tweak a couple of things.  If you have an older version of Windows, then you will have “Internet Explorer” by default.  “IE” may have some problems so I recommend you install another Web browser.  Normally I’d recommend Google Chrome however this is available only for 64 bit systems – the easiest “catch-all” solution is to install Firefox for your system (32 bit or 64 bit).
