Frequently Asked Questions
Will I receive a receipt for my donation?
Yes. The National Breast Cancer Foundation will issue tax-deductible receipts for all donations over $2.00.
*If you have made a donation and have not received your receipt within 5-7 business days, please contact 1300 708 763.
Is my donation tax deductible?
To be eligible to claim your donation as a tax deduction, the donation must be;
- Two dollars ($2.00) or more and;
- The recipient charity must be endorsed by the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) as a deductible gift recipient (DGR) organisation.
- The deduction must be claimed in your tax return for the income year in which the donation was made.
The National Breast Cancer Foundation (ABN 37 144 841 707) has been endorsed by the Australian Taxation Office as a deductible gift recipient (DGR) organisation.
How can I estimate my tax deduction or savings?
If the donation meets the criteria stated above, the actual cost of the donation to you is reduced by your tax savings. The tax savings are calculated based on your individual income tax rate so the actual benefit to you is dependent on your income and circumstances. You can find out more by visiting the ATO website.
This doesn’t affect the amount of money the charity actually receives, just what you’re entitled to claim as a deduction at tax time.
Why can’t I claim raffle tickets, auction prizes as a tax deduction?
According to the Australian Taxation Office, where a material benefit is received (i.e raffle or event tickets or merchandise like pens or chocolate), unfortunately you are not entitled to claim the contribution as a tax deductible gift.
