Payments, Donations & Membership


COA receives very little government funding, and we are grateful to our community for its financial support. Since our inception we have relied on our community, and it has responded to our needs, supporting our initiatives and services for 32 years.

Where does the money go?

All services offered - entertainment, social workers, advocacy, information & referral, transport, outings, classes, live music, home support, activities and the 20,000+ home delivered kosher meals in the last year - are heavily subsidised by COA. Donations from members and non-members make this possible, each and every day.

How to make a donation

Making a donation to COA is easy – simply download the donation form below, or call COA with your credit card details or send cheques payable to "COA Sydney". Return the completed form to COA by mail or email to Any amount is appreciated, no matter how small. The majority of donations received go directly to subsidising services to the frail and aged.

Your donation can also honour a loved one for their birthday or anniversary. COA will provide a beautiful certificate to make the occasion truly memorable. Please give us details when you call.
