A sponsorship process that allows the Tasmanian community to decide who RACT supports.
Every quarter three much deserving charitable organisations are chosen to receive funding through our Community Act of Royalty Program.
These charities are featured in all of our RACT branches and each time a purchase is made by a customer, they receive a token to place in a box nominating one of the three charities to receive funding.
The organisation with the most tokens at the end of the quarter will receive $3000, the organisation that comes second will receive $2000 and the organisation that comes third will receive $1000.
Charitable organisations wishing to be considered for future participation can apply here and send their application form to
This quarter our three charities are:
Haemophilia Foundation Tasmania
Haemophilia Foundation Tasmania represents people with haemophilia, von Willebrand disease and other related bleeding disorders. In Tasmania alone, there are 200 families affected by a bleeding disorder. The foundation ensures that everyone has access to the best practice treatment, care and support. The volunteer committee
also organise peer support programs, fundraise, run the day to day
administration of the foundation and work closely with the Haemophilia
Treatment Centre. Funds raised will be used for the
development and delivery of a peer support and mentoring program for people
with a bleeding disorder and their families living in Tasmania. Some families
are isolated and rural, and this program will bring them together and connect
them with others, ultimately building a support network.

Wish Upon a Star
Wish Upon a Star is a newly formed charity.
Unfortunately there are families out there going through extreme hardship and
really struggling. So Wish upon a star supplies leavers dinner packages to
those families, so they are able to attend their leavers dinners without the
stress and worry financially of finding the dress or the suit. They believe that
no child should miss out on attending the important events in their lives such
as their leavers dinners, balls etc.

Care Beyond Cure Inc.
Care Beyond Cure provides free fortnightly access to a range of complimentary therapies, art workshops and art therapy for individuals with a diagnosed 'progressive' life limiting illness, regardless of disease type or age, along with their family carer. They also started Australia's first 'Community Coffin Club' two years ago where individuals can make a coffin for themselves or a loved one – they simply provide the materials. We provide the mentors and support, and the Ulverstone Lions Club provides access to the space and equipment. Care Beyond Cure have recently opened a Hearts & Arts Space to honour the experiences of loss, grief and bereavement through any means; one can make a little gift of kindness and it's free.
