Friends of the Barwon Inc. were recently informed that our application to be a tax Deductible Gift Recipient has been successful. Consequently, FOTB and its public fund have successfully been entered onto the Register of Environmental Organisations (REO) as of 29 November 2023.

This means that donations made to the public fund from this date of entry are eligible for a tax deduction under the Income Tax Assessment Act 1997 (the Act). The Australian Taxation Office (ATO) has been notified of the organisation’s entry onto the REO and will update the organisation’s Australian Business Register entry to reflect the public fund’s endorsement as a Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR).

As a Not for Profit, FOTB operates on a very small budget which primarily covers the Executive Officer (EO) role for just 7.6 hours per week. All other work that is undertaken by the Committee, other members and the Executive Officer is voluntary.

If you would like to help secure the future of FOTB and expand our activities, please consider making a tax-deductible donation to Friends of the Barwon using the buttons below or email friendsofthebarwon@gmail.com to discuss your ideas.

All donations over $2.00 will be tax deductible.
