Since 1 July 2008, as a general rule, we have not issued receipts for individual gifts to reduce costs and simplify processes. Instead, you will receive an annual tax statement that contains a summary of tax-deductible donations you made to us during the financial year.
If you live in New South Wales, you will continue to receive receipts for certain types of individual gifts in compliance with NSW fundraising laws.
Many of our generous supporters give as a group with friends, family or work colleagues. This is done by pooling donations and having one person from the group send us the pooled amount. Each year, we spend considerable resources (in staff time and postage) responding to requests for annual tax statements to be issued to individual members of such groups.
If you regularly donate in this way, you can help us save on administration costs (thus ensuring more of your donations are applied directly to our project work) by contacting us at the start of the financial year to make arrangements for issuing annual tax statements to each group member.
