Deductible Gift Recipient
What is Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR)
The Australian Neighbourhood and Centres Association (ANHCA) Public Fund is a fund which can assist community organisations which are part of ANHCA’s national network of community and neighbourhood houses and centres to raise funds through public and corporate donations.
Donations are a great way for local businesses, community members and foundations to support the work of Community and Neighbourhood Houses and Centres. Donations can be used for a range of activities and opportunities including food relief, building an indigenous garden, equipment replacement, establishing a community play space, community festivals and events.
For your Community or Neighbourhood House/Centre to be eligible to receive tax deductible donations of $20 or more from individuals and businesses, follow these steps provided by ANHCA.
How to Apply
The ANHCA Public Fund provides a mechanism which enables community centres, through ANHCA, to:
- take donations for which the donor or philanthropic body wishes to claim as a tax deduction
- apply for grants provided by philanthropic bodies and foundations which require DGR (tax deductibility) status.
