Tax deductions

The University of Sydney has deductible gift recipient (DGR) status for Australian income tax purposes.

Will I receive a receipt?

Yes, the University will issue receipts for gifts of $2 or more. Receipts will be received in the mail within approximately five to ten business days from when the donation was made.

Are there any limitations on who is eligible to receive a tax deductible receipt?

If an individual has direct influence over the use of funds, or could receive any material advantage from making the gift, they are not eligible to make a tax deductible gift toward the project.  Please refer to the University's Gift Acceptance Policy for more information. 

When will my credit card be charged?

Your gift will automatically be processed once you click “submit” on the crowdfunding website.

Are gifts from overseas accepted?

Yes, the University accepts gifts made outside Australia. The University does not make representations as to the tax treatment of such gifts – you will need to seek your own advice on tax deductions in your country.
