Tax Deductable Donations

General Guidelines

  • Waverley Library is endorsed by the Australian Taxation Office as a Deductable Gift Recipient
  • Most gifts to the library may be claimed as tax deductions
  • Gifts may be cash, property, cultural gifts or bequests eg: significant collections of books or historical photographs.  These gifts can be used by the library.
  • The amount of the deduction will depend on the type of gift.  For cash, it is the amount of the gift.  For other gifts, valuations (which may also be tax deductable) are required.  The general rule is that the amount of the deduction is the average of two or more written valuations made by valuers approved by the Departments of Communications, Information Technology and the Arts.  The library can provide a list of approved valuers.
  • All cash donations of $2 or more are tax deductible.
  • GST is not applicable to these donations.

How is the money used?

Waverley Library provides a broad range of services for the community.  These may be directed towards childrens, older people, the housebound, students, people from other countries and those with special needs.  Literacy and reading, study and information, community and cultural programs, storytelling for disadvantaged groups and a Home Library Service are just a few of the services provided.

The library is a focal point for a wide range of community activities and we work cooperatively with many individuals and grounds to provide these services.  If you would like to assist please contact us on 9083 8777.
You will receive a special receipt to enable you to claim a tax deduction.
