RiverSmart Australia Ltd, as a not-for-profit organization, has been granted ‘charity’ status by the Australian Taxation Office (ATO).
In addition, it holds Tax Deductible Gift Recipient status from both the Federal Environment Department and the ATO. This means that any donations to our organisation for $5 or more can be claimed as a tax deduction.
Funds donated are deposited in RiverSmart’s Public Fund, the Blue Bucket account. A five-person Committee then decides on how the funds will be used in accordance with RiverSmart Objects as set out in our Constitution.
