Donations and Bequests

The Leo Baeck Centre very much welcomes donations and bequests and deeply appreciates your support.

You can donate in one of two ways:

  1. Direct to LBC in support of current projects, programs and celebrations.


  1. To the Progressive Jewish Mitzvah Fund (PJMF) (tax deductible) to support community Progressive Jewish culture and education at LBC into the future. Contributions may be used for the below activities:
  • Youth education
  • Adult education
  • Music program.
  • Works of art or scholarship
  • Sustainability projects

Tax deductible funds will be invested ethically in the Mitzvah Fund with investment income and growth able to provide ongoing benefits to the LBC and the broader Progressive Jewish Community in Melbourne’s northeast region in all areas of Progressive Jewish culture and education.

Either donation can be made via cheque, direct deposit into our account (BSB: 013 400; Account No.: 3133 24807), or by clicking the ‘Donate’ button below.

If you wish to make a donation to the tax deductible Mitzvah Fund please ensure to contact us through the portal below or at In this email, please include your name to let us know that you have made the donation, and that you wish to donate to the Mitzvah Fund. (We will, of course, respect any request for a donation to be ‘anonymous’, but we would still like to thank you personally.) If you would like to discuss donating or making a bequest, please contact the Office.
