Frequently asked questions

This means that gifts you make to registered charities like World Vision Australia that have Deductible Gift Recipient status can be claimed as a tax deduction when you submit your tax return at the end of the financial year. For example, the full amount of your donation of $2 or more is tax deductible. We will send you an Annual Tax Statement at the end of the financial year so that you have a record of the donations you have made when preparing your tax return. You can find more information about the rules and guidelines for tax deductible donations by visiting the ATO website.
Gifts of $2 or more to a non-profit organisation like World Vision Australia that has Deductible Gift Recipient status with the Australian Tax Office (ATO) are tax deductible, depending on your own personal tax position.
