Manage your donations/sponsorship
The MKC team have over time had a few different ways to sponsor. This page is designed to help you locate your sponsorship and if necessary, make changes.
All donations made to both the MKC and ARC are tax deductible and go into the bank account of our registered charity. ARC donations go into a “special purposes” account which is separate from MKC and is used for our outreach and Wildlife programs.
Common questions answered
Why do you have two bank accounts?
In 2019, MKC formed a business unit which is now called “Animal Rescue Cooperative”. This was to manage outreach programs helping other rescue organisations in need. This is still part of the MKC org however has a separate bank account, separate paypal so that it can be accounted for separate to the MKC general rescue work.
Where is my donation used?
If you are donating to the MKC directly, this is used in our Companion Animal work. This is predominantly cat rescuing and support. Desexing, medical and rescue programs.
If you are donating to the ARC special purposes fund, this is used to help other rescue organisations, wildlife and outreach programs across all animals.
Why do you have two systems?
MKC uses a tool called “Chargebee” to manage it’s monthly sponsors, It’s a third party tool hosted on the Chargebee site. It’s very good but also a bit expensive, so when we set up ARC we used a different tool (GiveWP) to manage donations. When we then set up the ARC website we migrated this to a new GiveWP instance. We are slowly reversing out the old system and moving ARC to Arcsupport.org.au
