We are proud to announce that we have successfully acquired DGR status which means that donors giving charity to Edhi Australia can claim in their tax returns

What does it mean for Donors?
If a charity is endorsed by the ATO as a “deductible gift recipient organisation” (DGRO), or is listed by name in Income Tax Law then any donations you make to that charity may be tax deductible donations. Tax deductible donation to Edhi International Foundation Australia is a great way to give your refund a boost while contributing to a worthy cause.

How to Claim Donations on Your Tax Return?
To claim tax deductible donations on your tax return, your donation must be made to a deductible gift recipient charity, and it must be a donation of $2 or more. Section D9 on your tax return (Gifts and Donations) deals specifically with charitable donations, so that’s where you should record your donations. You must keep proof (in the form of a receipt or bank statement) of any donation you make as well as the total dollar amount of the donation you make in a tax year.
