Donations to The LEAD Group’s Lead Education and Abatement Fund (LEAF) are tax-deductible and will be used to achieve the environmental purposes of The LEAD Group.

To make Donations by PayPal or Credit Card, go to the Donate button at the end of the page. We also accept donations by phone. Please phone our office (02 9716 0014) with your Credit Card details or to ask for EFT details.

Donations of $20 or more entitle the donor to a free entry (worth $10) into the Volcano Art Prize (VAP) and 30 winning entries will be chosen by the Art Judge to win a Pictureproducts mug with your entry printed on it. And anyone can choose any VAP entry to be printed on a Lead Safe World poster – which
can be ordered at – which you can then take to your local GP, vet, community noticeboard, preschool, school etc and ask that it be displayed, to raise lead awareness.

You can specify if you prefer your donation to remain anonymous and also, how your donation to LEAF is to be spent by The LEAD Group.

After making your Paypal or Credit Card donation (using the Paypal button below), you will see our email address under Donations Coordinator Contact Information or go to Contact Us for our contact information.

The default is that we’ll web-publish donors’ names and spend the donation on our environmental purposes. Please send us an email if you want to remain anonymous and/or if you want to specify how your donation is spent. For example, “Cash Prize pool for VAP” or “to raise awareness of lead flashing adding lead to rainwater tanks or stormwater” etc.

The Cash Prize pool will also receive all the VAP entry fees so please encourage everyone you know to put in an entry to VAP. We accept all manner of “artworks” relating to lead-safety, including photos, very short films and digital images of sculptures/paintings etc.

One-third of the VAP 2015 Cash Prize pool will be awarded to the People’s Choice entrant and two-thirds will be awarded to the Judge’s Choice entrant.

Donations over $2 are tax deductible and this is a secure donation link!

World Poster of their choice!
