Does your not-for-profit organisation receive gifts? Only certain organisations can receive tax-deductible gifts. They are called deductible gift recipients (DGRs).
Unless an organisation is a DGR, the supporter cannot claim a tax deduction for their donation or contribution to it.
Charities can receive tax-deductible gifts provided the charity is a DGR. Some charities are not DGRs and, therefore, cannot receive tax deductible gifts.
You can check if your organisation is already a DGR by:
- visiting ABN lookupExternal Link, or
- phoning us on 13 28 61.
