Yes! Effective Altruism Australia (ABN 87 608 863 467) is endorsed as a Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) by the Australian Taxation Office (ATO). Donations of $2 or more are tax deductible in Australia.
You will receive a receipt for donations once we confirm it has arrived in our bank account. For bank transfers, this will usually take 1-2 days, whereas the wait should be no longer than 15 minutes for credit cards. If you do not receive a receipt within the relevant timeframe, please send an email to email@example.com including your full name, a description, the amount donated and the name of your banking institution. We’ll hop onto it straight away. Also note that receipts may occasionally end up in your spam inbox.
Yes you will. For the 2019-2020 financial year, these were sent on 9 July 2020. If you didn’t get yours, you are welcome to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll look into it. Note that we separately sent you a receipt for each donation received.
You can currently donate to EAA in two different ways, by bank transfer or by credit card. Both methods allow us to process your payment at no cost to you, although note that for large donations (over $2,000) we prefer bank transfer, as it reduces the fees we pay. To donate by bank transfer you will need to register your intention to make a single, or recurring, transfer to our bank account. You can do this by completing the form on our donation page. Once we have registered your intention to donate we will send you a unique code. You will need to use this unique code as a reference number when sending your payment to our bank account so that we can identify your payment. We will send you a tax receipt for every payment we receive from you. You should receive your receipt within 1-2 days. To donate by credit card, simply follow the instructions and fill in your details on our donation page.
You can now make donations via credit card.
Please email email@example.com with details of your donation, including name, description, amount and the name of your banking institution.
Running any charity has costs. To get your donation to its destination we need to meet our regulatory obligations and cover the costs of auditors, accountants, government registrations, banking facilities, websites, software and more. Like most charities, a portion of donations go to these kinds of expenses. In the last financial year (2018-2019), our operational expenses were 2.84% of the overall amount of donations we received.
