donate-1024x682Earlier this month we received some very good news. GC Aid has been granted ‘Schedule 32’ Donee Status!

Generally, donations to charities and churches in New Zealand qualify for a one-third tax credit when a gift is spent within the country.  Each of our GC3 trusts has that general Donee Status.  It means that when an individual gives $300 to us for our activities within NZ, we can issue a donation receipt that can be used to claim $100 back in their IR526 Tax Credit Claim form.

However, gifts given to a mission partner, or to the ministry they are involved in, do not qualify for the tax credit.  This is because the gift has been given to them or their ministry, and not to us at GC3 for our use and purposes.  The gift has been merely held in trust by us for the mission partner, to be passed on to them for use in some place outside of New Zealand.  These gifts therefore have not qualified for a tax credit in the past, and still do not.
