It’s that time of year when businesses and individuals are thinking ‘how can we save tax?’
One way to reduce your taxable income is by making a charitable donation to a charity registered as a Deductible Gift Recipient.
Not only do you save giving money to the tax man; your money can do an extraordinary amount of good.
One such charity is Byron’s own SHIFT Project, the organisation that transforms women’s lives.
For the month of June the SHIFT Project has the opportunity to raise $100,000 by doubling every dollar donated – thanks to the Uechtritz Foundation that has very generously donated a pool of $50,000 so they can match every dollar donated until June 30.
Founder and Byron Shire Citizen of the Year, Anne Goslett, is asking locals and businesses to shake their pockets and crack open the piggy banks to take advantage of giving less to the tax man next month.
All donations will go directly to programs that address homelessness and reconnect women to community – from welfare to wellbeing.
The SHIFT Project is an independent charity that relies solely on donations and fundraising to operate.
