Why are we called Cobra and Mongoose?
Both creatures are native to the countries where the charity first started operating. We took inspiration from Rudyard Kipling’s children story of The Cobra and the Mongoose. While the tale is one of animosity between both creatures, Cobra and Mongoose charity is focused on breaking down barriers and building relationships, no matter what tribe, religion or ethnicity.
How do we select our projects?
Most of our projects are selected through spending time on the ground in developing countries where we have been fortunate to meet local people who are making a difference in their communities. We work with them to understand community needs and establish how best we can support them.
How do we fund our projects?
All of our projects are funded through donations. This includes corporate and personal donations.
We also run a number of fundraising events over the year – primarily in the Sydney Northern Beaches area. Updates on these events and other ways you can help with fund raising are made available in our <news> pages <link to page>
Are we a registered charity?
We don’t currently have registered charity status but we are working on getting registered. One of our primary goals continues to be ensuring that every dollar we make is invested into our projects. We are currently working on a cost efficient means of getting registered, which won’t financially detract from our projects. More information to come in 2018
Can I claim tax deductions for donations?
\Yes, we are a registered Public Benevolent Institution and are endorsed as deductible gift recipients under.
