TURN THE TABLES is a project developed by Mama Lana’s Community Foundation (MLCF), to give businesses the opportunity to join together to build a valuable resource for the most vulnerable members of our community.
Our continual expansion meant that we outgrew our humble beginnings and needed our community’s help to strengthen our service, to continue to transform lives. The initial response to this project was amazing, and provided us with the first 3 years of funds for permanent premises!
Businesses (or other organisations and individuals) are invited to become TURN THE TABLES Partners. This is ideal for community-minded businesses who want to give to a cause, knowing it will make a tangible difference.
Each business contributes $1,000 per year, with a commitment of 3 years ($3,000 in total).
NOTE: Larger Partner donations are also accepted!
TURN THE TABLES contributions covers rental (and associated) costs of running the Mama Lana’s Community Foundation premises.
All donations are fully tax deductible.
