Special provision is made for charities registered with the ATO as Deductible Gift Recipients so that language used in campaigns and receipts does not include the notion of sponsorship. Instead, terms like donor, supporter, and minimum donation are employed. While the use of the term sponsor does not in itself constitute a tangible difference for tax consideration, Pic Sponsors™ assists charities to make it clear that funds are a voluntary donation.
Receipts sent by Pic Sponsors™ for donors to charities registered as Deductible Gift Recipients include the following statement:
"Receipt issued by Pic Sponsors™ as an agent for [your DGR entity name & ABN]."
For fundraisers without DGR registration we will issue regular receipts as confirmation of the transaction.
