Two months to End of Financial Year 
Donate Today
There are a number of ways
you can help raise money for Alma
1. The end of financial year is looming, and with that you may be thinking about tax deductible donations!
Please think of the Alma Doeple Restoration Project.

2. Why not get a group together and come on a "Behind the Scenes Tour" of the Alma Doepel. If each member makes a small donation - say $10 - we will provide a tour with morning tea. You will see up close the work that is going on and learn about the 115 years of history including service to:
  • Eastern seaboard of Australia,
  • Hobart and Melbourne,
  • the Army in WW2 in the Pacific Islands
  • and her new role providing Youth Sail Training for young people equipping them for success in their lives
3. If you are considering a mortgage in the near future - you might want to have a look at the AWA Alliance Bank who have an arrangement with the Alma Doepel to assist in the Restoration.
As an example if you took out a $250,000 mortgage at 3.99% it will deliver Alma Doepel approximately $1,300 a year. Something for you to think about.

A Strategic Partnership between Alma Doepel and AWA Alliance Bank has been established.
Through this partnership you can support Alma Doepel’s restoration by considering AWA Alliance Bank for your banking needs..

Make a donation today of any amount, and remember a donation of $500 or more buys a plank and immortalises you or your group on our Plank Honour Board.
