2021 Donation Appeal

As a not-for-profit toy lending service that provides families with access to fun and educational toys to assist childhood development for over 35 years, we have finally gained DGR status and have launched out 2021 Donation Appeal.

Sustainability is at our core through toy recycling, and we ask our community to borrow rather than buy for the environment and our children benefits. There is no reason for us to continue to fill our landfill when we can share the fun with othersSee its impacts here.

Unfortunately, we do not receive government or council funding to operate and rely solely on our memberships, small fundraising events and our volunteers to continue to operate. As you can imagine, the impact of COVID-19 lockdowns has been detrimental to our membership numbers and general sources of income such as fundraising events.

We ask if you can help us with a tax-deductible donation that will help achieve our goal to continue to provide a sustainable service providing the power of play to the children in the community.

How can you help?

  • $20 will help purchase an infant toy
  • $50 will help purchase an expression toy
  • $90 will fund a yearly membership for a family in need
  • $250 will help fund an open session
  • Or donate what you can! Donations of $2 and more are tax-deductible.


We appreciate the support and hope you can help.

Yours Sincerely,

Bayside Toy Library Committee
