The Holy Monastery of St. John of the Mountain is half an hour from the centre of Perth in Western Australia. Saint John of the Mountain is Saint John the Baptist who is celebrated on the 24th June the feast of the birth of the Forerunner.
Since 2005, the Holy Monastery of St John of The Mountain offers its ministration to the fellow man and its worship and devotion to the Triune God. In addition to the buildings and other facilities offered, the Holy Monastery strives effortlessly for the religious and spiritual education and training of people in Christ. The teaching of the Greek language through the texts of Divine Worship, courses of Bible study, Church services in English, intensive courses of Byzantine Music and Iconography, holy confession and ministration of social work (chaplaincy) are some of the activities offered by the Holy Monastery. All of these activities are interwoven with the prayer, remembering Saint Gregory Palamas words, ”all labours compares to nothing to the Prayer”. These words summarise the seeding of the spirit of monasticism growing in the remotest capital city in Australia, thanks to God.

These funds are used by the Monks of Greek Orthodox Monastery of St John of the Mountain Perth – Australia. To be used at their discretion for the upkeep of the Monastery and the Monks welfare. Non Tax-Deductible via Good News Text as trustee for the Rev Themi and Friends Trust
Paradise 4 Kids Australia (P4K-AU) operates under “Paradise 4 Kids Inc” incorporated in the United States, an approved Tax Deductible Charity under the IRS.
In Australia we offer Tax Deductible Donations receipts via HADA – HEALTH & DEVELOPMENT AID ABROAD AUST FD INC under the regulations of AusAid and the Australian Government. Donations via HADA can only receive Tax Deductions.
“The Rev Themi & Friends Trust“ is a Australian Trust Deed set up to receive monetary Gifts. The beneficiary is Rev Themi to use the funds as he sees fit in his work with the Poor. “The Rev Themi & Friends Trust” is a PRIVATE TRUST ABN: 82 798 997 785 with a Corporate Trustee (Good News Text (International) Pty Ltd and donations are considered GIFTS and are “NOT TAX DEDUCTIBLE“
*In Australia, the trading’s names: Paradise 4 Kids-AU; Paradise Kids 4 Africa; P4K-AU; PK4A are owned by The Rev Themi & Friends Trust
In Australia, AusAid and the Australian Tax Office have stipulated the types of projects that are able to receive this status.
The support of a Monastery does not meet these requirements and therefore is NOT Tax deductible.
Your funds are considered a Gift.

However -:
1. Welfare assistance, that is the running of a mission or institutions, like schools, orphanages Food banks, individual sponsoring and the like activities are expressly excluded; – Not Tax Deductible.

2. The sponsoring of individual students / children to go to school or projects such as clothing and food packages are not permitted.- Not Tax Deductible.

3. Whereas assistance to a community that will help the whole community is tax deductible. Like building a Medical Centre, but not the ongoing expenses of the Medical centre, or building a School, but not the ongoing expenses of the school.

4. If a projects include micro credit, clean water supply or infrastructure benefiting the broader community as a whole, tax deductibility is acceptable.

So, because many people have the expectation that fundraising is to help feed and clothe, and support the ongoing operation of a mission, we have set up Ezi Gift which is a Non Tax Deductible Donation and therefore goes to welfare projects like supporting a Monestary.
Because all P4K staff are volunteers, and no salaries are paid, we are able to send all the funds, in their entirety to the monastery.

All P4K projects are run by people who are personally known to members of the board and applications go through an examination process of a non related organisation (HADA), so before being accepted as a P4K project, it must pass HADA’s stringent government authorised process.
Once approved, all managers of projects are required to submit three monthly reports, for HADA’s ongoing supervision.
We value our Gift Deductible Recipient status and carefully look at all projects to see if they fit the criteria laid down by the Australian Tax Office. Some donors like to leave the distribution of their funds to the P4K board and send gifts marked “where most needed.” This allows us to help a specific project when a need arises and having this discretion is very much appreciated.
We trust that this explanation of Tax Deductibility is helpful to you in understanding how the system operates. We highly value your confidence and trust in us and thank you for your donations over the past 10 and more years to come.
