Fundraising & Tax Deductibility
(Australian volunteers only)
Fundraising for World Youth
International is a very rewarding experience and is a great way to make a
global contribution with your time and effort, instead of your
finances. Donations are tax deductible!
Tax Deductible Donations
donations that are made to your fundraising efforts are fully tax
deductible. WYI will provide you with a receipt book so you can issue
tax deductible receipts. Rally your friends, corporate groups, work
colleges, and contacts to make a donation to your campaign!
Please note: 'donation'
means the donator receives nothing in return - for example, if you are
selling tickets to an event, this is not tax deductible.
There are a number of causes you could fundraise for:
Fundraise for your Program Fee
you want to participate on one of our overseas volunteer programs but
are restricted financially? Perhaps you should consider fundraising! Get
a group of friends together and organise an event such as a movie night
or a garage sale. When you deposit the money you have raised to WYI, it
will be taken off of your program fee!
This method has been very
successful in the past with some participants managing to fundraise
their entire program fee, plus more. If you choose to fundraise, WYI
will provide you with a full Fundraising Kit that includes tax
deductible receipts, ideas, terms and conditions, an authorization card,
plus handy hints & tips!
Fundraise for In-Country Projects
a program participant, you can also fundraise before leaving Australia,
and the money can be used on your placement in addition to your
allocated project allowance. You can choose where your funds are
distributed and use them for a certain project close to your heart. This
may be by immunizing a family against disease or building a house for a
local family, depending on the amount of funds you can raise and the
need of your community.
As a returned volunteer, you
can also continue to support your friends overseas. If there is a
project you wish to create, you may fundraise through WYI.
Fundraise to Support World Youth International
a non-for-profit organisation, WYI operates on an extremely small
administration and expenditures budget. Fundraising to support the
operational costs of WYI will be very much appreciated. Your funds will
help ensure the success of WYI's operations.
