Ultimately the plan is for us to pursue DGR status for the platform. That status will enable us to provide Tax Receipts for the donations we receive. Indeed, Minter Ellison is providing us with valuable pro bono legal advice in that regard.
In the meantime, we are desperately looking at options to fund the full development and the first year of operation of the platform.
With that in mind, we are incredibly grateful to MS Queensland, who have agreed to accept donations in support of the platform and provide Tax Receipts to the donors.
Many charitable foundations and would-be donors expect the recipient to have DGR status. This has caught us in a vicious circle. Because of MS Queensland’s generous offer, we can start pursuing corporate donations and support. If you happen to be involved in a body that provides such donations, we would be thrilled to have a chat to you. Send us an email to [email protected] to discuss.
