    Select this option if you are applying for endorsement of the whole organisation as a deductible gift recipient.

    Example

    QW Hostel is a registered public benevolent institution. As gifts to a registered public benevolent institution can be income tax deductible, QW Hostel will apply to be a deductible gift recipient for the whole of its operations.

    (b) Endorsement of your organisation as a deductible gift recipient for a fund, authority or institution your organisation owns or includes?

    Select this option if your organisation is applying for endorsement as a deductible gift recipient for a fund, authority or institution it owns or includes.

    If income tax deductible gifts can be made to more than one part of your organisation, you must lodge a separate application for endorsement for each part.

    Example

    WE City Council operates a public museum. While gifts to a council are not income tax deductible, gifts to a public museum may be income tax deductible. WE City Council will apply to be a deductible gift recipient only for the operation of its public museum.

    Example

    ER School operates a school building fund and a public library. While gifts to a school are not income tax deductible, gifts to school building funds and to public libraries can be income tax deductible. ER School will need to lodge two separate applications for endorsement; one for the school building fund and one for the public library.
