Grants from the Trust can only be awarded to DGR (Deductible Gift Recipient) organisations. See GDR Status and Donations and Endorsed DGRs – GiftPack, for further information.New unregistered entities may be eligible to receive monies from Citizen Advocacy Australia (CAA), providing they meet other requirements as set out in the grant application and the Citizen Advocacy Australia Constitution. But they will not be eligible to receive grants from the Citizen Advocacy Trust until they receive DGR status.
Presently, most efforts at fund raising are directed towards tax deductible donations, though this does not preclude a company sponsoring Citizen Advocacy Australia, for which it would not be eligible to receive any tax deduction, but would receive other benefits, for instance, free advertising in our national newsletter. Such (non-tax deductible) income would be mostly directed towards efforts to commence a program that does not (yet) have DGR status.
