It really comes down to which causes matter to you most, and which organisations
you think will be the most effective.



Charity Checklist

  • If you're making a donation to an overseas aid organisation, check that it's a member of ACFID and, more importantly, a signatory to its Code of Conduct.

  • For domestic charities and commercial fundraisers, ask if they're a member of the FIA and are registered with the ACNC.

  • Check that the charity is licensed by its state or territory regulator. Each state has different exemptions. In some states, religious organisations don't need to be registered, for example.

Claiming Tax Deductions

  • Charity donations can be claimed on your tax return if your charity is registered as a Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR). This doesn't affect the amount of money the charity actually receives, just what you're entitled to deduct at tax time.

  • There are conditions about what you can claim. Donations must be at least $2 and you'll need a receipt. Some gifts to DGRs – such as tickets to a charity dinner or ball – are generally not eligible.

  • You can check if an organisation is a DGR via the ABN lookup website. There's also information about the deductibility of donations at the ATO.

So how do you choose a good charity?
