Are donations tax-deductible?

Katoke Trust for Overseas Aid (ABN 51 742 721 573) is endorsed by the Australian Taxation Office as a Deductible Gift Recipient.

Donations of $2 and over to the following funds are tax deductible:

  • General donation
  • Building program (used to build school facilities)
  • Student and teacher sponsorship (used to develop¬†students and teachers that graduate with skills to be economically self-supporting)

Funds contributed that are not tax deductible*:

  • Tickets to the Annual Dinner and other events
  • Purchase of local merchandise, auction items, raffle tickets

*To be able to offer tax deductibility on donations, Katoke’s activities must comply with the guidelines set out by the Australian Taxation Office and other government agencies. According to the Australian Taxation Office, where a material benefit is received, i.e raffle or event tickets or merchandise, unfortunately you are not entitled to claim the contribution as a tax deductible gift.
