How will your tax deductible donation help?
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.
What is a tax deductible donation?
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).
How do tax deductible donations work?
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.
Can corporations donate to Greenpeace?
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!
