Why donate?L2R has become a critical part of the arts ecology in Melbourne’s West – and our young people are brilliant Ambassadors of generosity and joy. As the industry emerges from lockdowns and restrictions, L2R is primed to rebuild and foster social confidence for public, physical, feel-good activity. Investing in L2R cultivates a creative recovery, where young people are holistically equipped, supported and energised. Now more than ever, we need to be supporting young people to stay connected and engaged within their communities. 84% of young people say being socially connected is vital for their mental wellbeing and 69% say having no sports or activities they enjoy near home impacts on their physical activity (Vic Health 2021). By becoming a donor today you are guaranteeing vital access points for young people to explore their own emerging identities through street dance culture.
Are the donations tax-deductible?Any size donation, big or small, is tax-deductible and will support L2R to directly empower the next generation of Australia's cultural leaders.
