Making a Gift

There are several ways you can give to the Ban Righ Centre.

We have two main areas of need:

  • Support for programs and services
  • Emergency bursaries for students

We know that each of our donors has a special reason for giving and we offer heartfelt thanks for your support. A tax receipt will be issued for your gift.
