First Time Ever for GSQ...

Family historians of the future will have a field day researching and writing about the impacts of COVID-19 on the lives of those who experienced such challenging times.

However, we are the folks living through these unprecedented and difficult times, and feeling deprived of so many of the activities we take for granted at GSQ.

With COVID-19 preventing the roll-out of our usual calendar of events, our GSQ coffers have also suffered. But the old saying “when the going gets tough, the tough get going” describes our trusty Volunteers who have decided to hold a Donation Drive – with the aim of raising $10,000 in much needed funds.

Your donation can be as small or as large as you like, and will be gratefully accepted no matter the amount. Special gift incentives have been created for you, for donations of $500, $250, $100, $50, $20 or $10.

For further details on how to donate, and the special gift incentives for each level of donation, please click on the red button below

You have all these options:

1. Credit Card
2. Direct bank transfer: GSQ; BSB 034-052; Account 400845 (Ref: “your surname, Drive”)
3. Forward this email to secretary@gsq.org.au and we'll organise the payment manually (as well as your tailored research service)
4. Send a cheque to: GSQ, PO Box 1467, Carindale, Qld 4152

It is so easy to Donate ...

We will be sending you an update in two weeks to let you know how the Donation Drive is going, but in the meantime, you can follow the progress on the progress bar below. We thank you for being a GSQ supporter, and hope that you can become involved in our Donation Drive.

If you have any questions at all, please contact us at secretary@gsq.org.au
