Apply for DGR endorsement

Find out how your organisation can apply for DGR endorsement.

Last updated 10 May 2022

There are two ways to apply to us for deductible gift recipient (DGR) endorsement:

  • If you are currently applying for registration as a charity with the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC), you can apply to us for DGR endorsement on the ACNC's registration application form.
  • If you already have an ABN, and you're either already registered as a charity or are not required to be for DGR endorsement, you can complete our Application for endorsement as a deductible gift recipient.  
    • If there is more than one fund, authority or institution for which you want endorsement, use a separate application for each.

From 14 December 2021, non-government DGRs are required to be a registered charity, except for ancillary funds or DGRs that are specifically listed in tax law. For more information, see DGRs required to be a registered charity.

If you are already DGR endorsed and require a copy of your endorsement notice, phone our dedicated NFP Premium Advice Service on 1300 130 248. You can check whether you are endorsed by searching your organisation’s name or ABN on ABN LookupExternal Link.
