Financial Donations

Maroondah Toy Library receives no ongoing government or corporate funding. Our membership fees alone do not cover our day-to-day running costs so we need your help to keep our doors open, helping families of the greater Maroondah area connect and learn through play. Donations also contribute to ensuring our library is continually stocked with a wide range of quality toys and play equipment.


Please consider making a donation today via GiveNow or PayPal.  We are endorsed as a deductible gift recipient and all donations of $2 or more are tax deductible.

Toy Donations

We gladly accept toy donations but toys must be:

  • Durable, easily cleaned and well made

  • Of exceptional play value and in excellent condition

  • Engaging and appealing to children aged from 6 months to 6 years of age

  • Transportable and able to fit into a standard sized car

Unfortunately we do not accept donations of soft toys, or consumable items such as play doh, pencils etc.

Simply bring your donations to one of our sessions and our coordinators will assist you with drop off.

Donate Your Time

Members are required to volunteer for 8 hours per year or pay a $100 non-duty levy. The library could not keep its doors open without this assistance and we encourage mums, dads and even grandparents to come along and lend a hand. It is a wonderful sense of community.

We also welcome non-member community and corporate volunteers to help us with staffing sessions, stock take, messy play days and more. Shoot us an email on to find out more.
