This is a review in the series ‘Members of Missions Interlink’, Missions Interlink being ‘the Australian network for global mission[1] (and a means for a Member to get income tax exemption when it might not otherwise be available[2]). Members must sign up to a set of standards, and this, at least on paper, makes them a better bet for your donations (or other involvement).

Student Outreach to the World’ is one such member, an Associate[3].

The website linked from the Missions Interlink membership goes to a website in the same name. Here they seek your donations, include via online giving facility.


The ACNC, in their article, Donating to Legitimate Charities, gives “some things to consider to help you make sure your donation is going where it is intended”:

  1. Check the charity’s name.
  2. Ask for identification from anyone seeking a donation.
  3. Be careful of online requests for donations.
  4. No tax deduction doesn’t mean the charity is not a legitimate one, and
  5. Find out more about how the charity says it uses donations.

Here’s the results for ‘Student Outreach to the World’, with consideration also given to the essentials of the ACNC’s What should I consider when deciding which charity to support?
