Tax Deductible Donations
Thank you for considering giving a donation or gift to Oxfam Australia.
We gratefully accept donations and gifts that, depending on your circumstances, may be tax deductible in Australia. This page sets out some of our tax deductible donation FAQs.
Disclaimer: the information on this page is general in nature and you should always speak to your tax advisor about your individual circumstances.
Does claiming a tax deduction affect the amount that Oxfam Australia receives?
No. Even when you claim a tax deduction, Oxfam Australia receives the full amount of your donation.
When is a donation or gift tax deductible?
There are certain conditions that must be met for a donation or gift to be tax deductible. These are set out on the website of the Australian Taxation Office (ATO).
For example, the donation or gift must be made to an Australian Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR). Not all charities are DGRs. Oxfam Australia is a DGR.
The donation or gift must truly be a donation or gift (a voluntary transfer where you receive no material benefit or advantage), must be money or property (this can include financial assets such as shares), and must comply with any other conditions.
The donation or gift must be for AUD $2 or more and you must retain a record (for example, a receipt). See here for more information.
Will Oxfam Australia provide me with a receipt for my donation or gift?
Yes. Our supporter service team at Oxfam Australia are also always happy to send tax receipts via email or mail when you make a tax deductible donation.
How much will I get back in my tax return?
You can use our donation tax benefit calculator for an idea of how much you may be able to get back in your tax return when you donate to Oxfam Australia.
Disclaimer: the calculator is illustrative and general in nature and because everyone’s circumstances are different you should always speak to your tax advisor about your individual circumstances and deductions.
