Not-for-Profit Fundraising Accounts

FRRR offers Not-for-Profit Fundraising Accounts as a way to make FRRR’s special tax status available to community organisations, to address the disadvantage remote, rural and regional communities face in accessing philanthropic funding

Community Foundation Accounts

FRRR Community Foundation Accounts allow Community Foundations (CFs) to leverage FRRR’s special tax status to attract funds from Private and Public Ancillary Funds and to provide grants to organisations in their communities.

How they work

One of FRRR’s fundamental tenets is that locals are the best people to make the important decisions about what is needed in their community. But sometimes, they need just a little help.

In addition to our granting programs, we help communities through Not-for-Profit Fundraising Accounts, and Community Foundation Accounts. These accounts are hosted by FRRR and allow rural communities to utilise our DGR status, enabling donors to make a tax deductible donation towards their project. They can be used to fundraise for a wide range of projects or programs – provided they are for a charitable purpose, and are consistent with FRRR’s objectives.

Benefits

Anyone can donate to FRRR, including individuals and Private Ancillary Funds, and receive a tax deduction. This is because FRRR is covered by Subdivision 30-B of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1997, and is specifically listed as a recipient for deductible gifts under section 30-105. FRRR donors can request that their funds are granted to specific Account partners.

Some of our partners also hold Giving Sub-Fund Accounts to create tailored giving programs in partnership with FRRR, so they can reach groups they can’t normally reach. Some of these partners also welcome other donors to contribute to these funds.
