Frequently Asked Questions

Q: [How can I make a donation?]
A: [You can become a member (members receive a discounted rate on classes, and are able to vote for board members), send a donation via paypal to paypal@fern.org.au, or come in and make a cash donation in our donation jar. It is a very nice jar, and while you are looking at it you can also enjoy the rest of FERN!]

You can also get involved with FERN by sharing your time, skills, and passions. 

Q: [How are donation proceeds distributed?]
A: [100% of all donations will be spent on FERN upkeep and FERNs running costs unless otherwise stated.]

Q: [Can I write any donations off on my taxes?]
