Anahata Yoga Retreat now registered as an NGO in the USA!
We are delighted to announce that Anahata Yoga Health & Education Trust went through an equivalency determination process and has now been recognised in the United States as a charitable trust or NGO (non-governmental organisation).
The trust has already received a generous donation given for the purpose of protecting the land and area from a cell phone tower. We are very grateful for this support. It gives us the ability to continue to protect the wider area and its spectacular natural environment for the benefit of all in the future.
With our new status, US citiizens now have the opportunity to make tax deductible donations. It is a way to put your energy, money and heart into something of value whilst receivng a tax rebate.
You can make a donation now to support the work of Anahata Yoga Health & Education Trust. Simply click on the "DONATE" button below, and pay online using Paypal's secure payment system or contact us directly for other options.
If you would like to designate your donation towards a specific purpose, please email us to let us know.
NEW areas of Need:
1. Urgent Need: Anahata 4WD on the way to the grave. Raising funds for a new Anahata vehicle $15000
We are in great need of a new vehicle! Our trusty grey surf 4WD workhorse truck, which carts around wood, gravel, straw, LPG, food supplies and more to help our gardens grow, keep the grounds looking lovely and helps keep your retreats comfortable and warm has finally croaked! After numerous operations and bandages, the car doctor can no longer help!
We are raising funds for or are willing to receive a second hand (in good condition) 4 wheel drive ute. If you are able to help us out in any way, please donate through our paypal site or contact us (email@example.com).
2. Establishing a Yoga Studies Student Support Fund
Over the last couple years, we raised funds for several young people to go through their Yoga Studies. We thank all those who have supported these young students. We have seen the transformational influence of Yoga Studies on those living here and the good work they do in the world when they leave with new skills and training. With this inspriration, we are now starting a Yoga Studies Support Fund.
Any donations earmarked towards this, will be used to support sincere applicants in their desires to begin or continue Yoga Studies with the Yoga Academy in Australia. Your help is greatly valued.
