If donations are not the only source of income, an authority holder must take all reasonable steps to ensure that expenses do not exceed a fair and reasonable proportion of the gross income.

Issuing tax deductible receipts

What is tax deductible? Donations over $2 made by an individual or organisation. Dreams2Live4 recommends you ask your supporters to donate to your personal fundraising page that you set up on our Community Hero Fundraising Hub. All donations over $2 made via this platform will be automatically issued a tax deductible receipt.

Cash Donation: If you receive a cash donation from a supporter, you can either:

  1. Pay the cash donation direct to your online personal fundraising page, remembering to use the donors details so they can be issued a tax deductible receipt. You can email us to help you.
  2. For offline fundraisers, record their name and contact details on your receipt request sheet, submit to Dreams2Live4 and an official tax-deductible receipt will be issued shortly after the end of your fundraising event.

Tax receipts: Tax receipts will only be issued in accordance with applicable taxation legislation. The Fundraiser must seek approval of receipting options from Dreams2Live4 prior to commencing the fundraising activity. What is not tax deductible? The following are not tax deductible:

  • Lump sum collections.
  • Monies raised and/or donated on behalf of others.
  • Purchases of raffle tickets.
  • Purchases of items/merchandise, such as an auction item.

Goods or services donated for a fundraising event or activity.

  • The cost of attending a fundraising event – for example the ticket price.

Fundraising legislation

All fundraising activities must meet the requirements of relevant laws and regulations in your State/Territory. It is your responsibility to obtain any necessary permits or licences required.

If your activity is using raffles, lotteries or other gaming activities to fundraise, there may be other laws and obligations that apply in your State or Territory.
