Donations of $2 or more to the EAF are tax deductible
Established in 1991, the Register of Cultural Organisations assists qualifying cultural bodies to attract support by enabling them to offer donors the incentive of a tax deduction. The Register aims to strengthen private sector support for the arts and encourages Australians to contribute to the nation's vibrant cultural life.
Cultural bodies listed on the Register are able to receive tax deductible donations to assist them with a wide range of cultural activities including the development of new work, publication, exhibition, etc.
The Register is administered by the Australian Government's Department of the Environment, Water, Heritage and the Arts. For more information http://www.arts.gov.au/tax_incentives/register_of_cultural_organisations
Donations made to the EAF are used solely for cultural activity as determined from time to time by the EAF Donations Fund Committee. Donations must be made unconditionally to be eligible for tax deductibility.
