yourtown’s services are predominantly funded by one of the largest and longest-running charitable Art Unions in Australia.
In the 2016-17 financial year, yourtown contributed more than $51 million to providing crucial services for young people across Australia and more than $1 million was allocated to advocating for positive systemic change for young people.
Many people don’t realise that yourtown buys properties which become our stunning luxury prize homes. We do not usually have property donated. While the costs of running a luxury art union are higher than other fundraising activities, many of our services would not exist without these vital funds. In the 2016-17 financial year, yourtown Art Unions contributed $25M back into the Australian community.
In the 2016-17 financial year, yourtown received $2.2M in donations through its campaigns from community and corporate fundraising activities (not including the Art Union), which means 76% of these funds go directly to the services we provide.
