Motafrenz Car Club Inc.

Australia's oldest and largest car club for the GLBTIQ community

Donations & Bequests

Motafrenz Car Club is one of Victoria’s oldest continuing LGBTIQ community organizations. Over the last 30 years the Club has been built on the hard work and thoughtful generosity of many people. Motafrenz provides a safe, inclusive and supportive place where members can pursue their passion for classic motoring and create lasting friendships.

So that Motafrenz can continue to support the community the Club you may consider making a donation, give a gift or leave a bequest that will provide a sound financial legacy for the future of Motafrenz. By doing this you will:

  1. Be giving back to an organization that has given you friendship and pleasure and contributing to a worthy cause.
  2. Help ensure the continuation of one of Victoria’s oldest continuing LGBTIQ community organizations.
  3. Help ensure that the Club is always in a position to withstand downturns in its finances or membership.
  4. Enable the Club to maintain (rather than increase) its current annual membership fees for an extended period of time.
  5. Give the Club’s greater ability to consider projects which may not be within the scope of the annual cash flow of the Club.

The generosity of members will in time become part of the Club’s DNA and provides a focus for philanthropy within Motafrenz in the years to come. It goes without saying that the size of the donation, bequest or gift is not as important as the gesture of generosity by the donor and all contributions should be recognized appropriately (with your consent) for the spirit in which they are given.

I direct that the receipt in writing of an authorised officer of Motafrenz Car Club shall be deemed proof of payment.”
