What is a tax deductible donation?
A tax deductible donation is a gift made to a charity that can’t provide you with any personal or material benefit. For example, buying tickets to attend a charity event or buying cookies associated with a charity can’t be claimed as a tax deductible donation.
By making a tax deductible donation to Greenpeace you’re not only doing a good but your taxable income and the amount of tax that you pay may decrease.
How do tax deductible donations work?
To be tax deductible, a donation needs to be $2 or more. It also needs to be addressed to an organisation that is entitled to receive tax deductible gifts. We are certified as a deductible gift recipient and hence donations made to us are tax deductible.
Also keep in mind that claiming such tax deduction on your gift won’t affect the amount of money received by Greenpeace. You will receive your return from the Australian Taxation office (ATO).
Can corporations donate to Greenpeace?
No! We do not accept donations from corporations, governments or political parties. This ensures that we can fight solely for the benefit of the environment without being held to the interests of any group with vested interests that might try to influence us or threaten to withdraw funding.
This is what makes Greenpeace uncorruptible and a true fighting force in the pursuit of a more green and peaceful world.
Is a regular donation tax deductible?
Yes! Ongoing donations that have been made before the end of the financial year need to be recorded. Even though your financial contribution may go beyond the end of this financial year, you will still be able to claim these tax deductible donations when you lodge your tax return the following year.
Regular donations are critical to our success by helping us create, plan and implement effective long term and strategic campaigns against complex issues like climate change and massive against massive corporations and governments. Join our crew and make a regular donation today!
Claiming donations on taxes
Claiming a donation when lodging your tax return is really easy. You just need the tax documentation that you normally use as well as the receipt that you receive after making a donation to Greenpeace. When lodging your tax return, you will have to complete the section D9 - Gifts and donations - on your tax return as per below to record your tax deductible donations.
Simply enter the gift amount that you gave this financial year and attach the corresponding receipts.
We are and will stay fiercely independent
Greenpeace accepts zero corporate or government donations so we can remain fiercely independent. We are proud to be able to act without fear of our funding being cut.
This means we rely 100% on individual supporters like you to fund our work. That’s why your donation is so important, it literally powers every campaign we work on.
A regular gift will enable Greenpeace to investigate, campaign, document and lobby for a sustainable balance between humans and the environment.
With your help we will expose environmental abuses by carrying out non-violent direct actions to raise awareness of our need to protect our oceans, forests, water supplies and our climate – the very life support systems of our planet.

Will I receive a receipt?
Yes, a receive will be sent to you after pledging to become a regular giver. Make sure to keep it in a safe location as you will need it to claim your tax deductible donations when lodging your tax return.
Can I choose which appeal gets my regular donation?
Unless otherwise stated, all of the funds raised go into the Greenpeace Trust Fund, which is an untied or unrestricted general fund. This means that Greenpeace can spend the funds where there is the most pressing need, for example, to respond to a recent environmental crisis.
Giving an unrestricted gift is the best way that you can support Greenpeace, as it ensures that we can spend the funds where they are needed most.
"Unrestricted" funds are donations that are available for Greenpeace to use for any purpose. Unrestricted funds will go towards our campaigns and any operating expenses.
In some circumstances, we can accept funds tied to a specific campaign: please contact our Supporter Relationships team on 1800 815 151.
Where donations are earmarked or tied to a specific objective, we fully endeavour to honour the donor's request. If we invite the general public to donate to a specific cause, a recognised accounting method is used to track and control donations. We report back on amounts raised, how it was spent, and the net proportion used for the purpose or cause.
We seek to actively raise no more than the full budget of activities we specify in earmarked funding requests; and will develop scenarios for dealing with shortfall or excess on specific earmarked fundraising projects. We make every effort to provide full and fair disclosure in managing donor designated gifts.
