Did you know that June is the biggest month for donations to sport?
Last financial year almost half of the donations made to sport through us ($13m) were received in June. We are expecting to reach over $40million in donations this financial year and we want all donors to be able to receive their receipt and claim their tax deduction THIS financial year.
For donors to receive a receipt dated on or before 30 June 2017, we must receive the money in our bank account before midnight on 30 June. Therefore, you need to keep the following key dates in mind:
Tuesday 27 June
Donation by cheque received by us no later than 5pm. Cheques need to be made payable to the Australian Sports Foundation.
Wednesday 28 June
Donations by EFT – we strongly recommend that donors money is transferred no later than 5pm to allow for any delays in the banking system.
Friday 30 June
Donations by Online and Manual forms by Credit Card – must be validated as paid by our payment gateway before midnight
Donations by EFT must be credited to our bank account on or before midnight.
Please remember that manual donation forms should be uploaded via the secured uploads function in your portal. If you need more information about doing this, check out our ‘how to’ document.
If you have any questions about processing donation before the end of financial year, please contact your Sports Partnership Manager or the team via firstname.lastname@example.org or 02 6214 7868.
