Cancer Council Receipts
Cancer Council will provide official tax deductible receipts for donations of $2 or more. Your team captain will have received these receipts in the Team Registration Kit. It is important to remember that if any benefit is received in return for money given, then it is no longer classified as a donation and is not tax deductible (for example, a ticket to a ball is not tax deductible, as food and entertainment is being received). Receipts for tax purposes can only be issued to people giving donations of money.
It’s important to remember that all receipt books issued must be returned to your team captain, as they are considered auditable items by the Australian Taxation Office (ATO). They need to be returned to Cancer Council whether they are used or unused.
Please Note: It is a condition of participation in Relay For Life that all fundraisers act in a legal and ethical manner when representing the Cancer Council. Donors requesting information about your fundraising activities must be provided with full details, and if they require further information, they should be referred to Cancer Council staff.
