The major faith-linked charities that have already received donations include the Salvation Army, Catholic Charities Australia, United Way, the Catholic Relief Fund, the International Rescue Committee and the United Church of Christ.
For those that have yet to receive a donation, charities such as the Salvation War will receive the maximum amount of $1,000 a year for life.
The biggest faith-themed charity, Unite for Life, will receive $10 million from the government, with the remainder going to Unite Australia.
The Salvation Army and the Catholic Charity Australia have received more than 80 per cent of their annual funding from the Commonwealth, and Unite will receive about 25 per cent from the Howard government’s contribution.
