indigo foundation’s conditions of fundraising
Conditions of Fundraising
Please note as you are collecting money on behalf of indigo foundation, it is required that you read, understand, and adhere to this agreement.
Once you have registered and adhered to conditions of fundraising at time of booking, you will be issued with an Authority to Fundraise. Laws relating to fundraising activities in Australia, differ from State to State, so it is important you follow these conditions.
- Travellers are not able to start fundraising until they have received an Authority to Fundraise from indigo foundation.
- Fundraisers must be 18 years old or over or accompanied by a parent/guardian if under 18 years of age. Parents/guardians must also sign this form.
- Travellers must send detailed information about their fundraising activities to the indigo foundation and Soulful Concepts, including the dates, type of activity, names of their fundraising support team, venue and organisations that are to be involved. indigo foundation will then approve activities for fundraising. If any of the information changes after approval, updated information must be provided to indigo foundation.
- Fundraisers must keep records of how much they spend on an event, how much was raised and given to indigo foundation or used for travel expenses. This information must be kept and presented to indigo foundation when submitting fundraising monies. All proceeds from any fundraising event must go directly to indigo foundation.
- Fundraisers can only use the name of indigo foundation to fundraise in relation to indigo foundation’s Larapinta Adventure. Soulful Concepts and indigo foundation will offer guidance on fundraising activities but it remains the responsibility of the individual fundraiser to ensure they comply with relevant State based legislation.
- indigo foundation has tax deductibility status for donations of $2 or more, therefore a tax deductible receipt will be issued by indigo foundation to each of your supporters that donate directly to indigo foundation. Any donors that require a tax deductible receipt should either donate to your online page or directly into the indigo foundation’s bank account. If payment is made directly to indigo foundation’s bank account, you must provide indigo foundation with the full name, address and phone number of your supporters and email these details to the indigo foundation in an Excel format.
- A tax deductible receipt will NOT be issued to supporters whose donation will go towards your tour costs. This portion of your fundraising is not regarded as tax deductible.
- The Tax Act does not allow indigo foundation to issue a tax deductible receipt to anyone that has received anything at all in return for their donation e.g. if you organise an event such as a golf day, movie night, clothes swap party etc and supporters pay an entry fee this is not tax deductible as they have received entry into the event. If you are unsure about this Soulful Concepts or indigo foundation will provide guidance.
- All media relations will need to be approved by indigo foundation. Please speak to the indigo foundation prior to contacting any media outlets. In addition any written material that describes the work and role of indigo foundation must be approved before it is circulated.
- Money can NOT be returned to supporters if a Fundraiser withdraws from a challenge. Supporters must agree on this before donating.
- Fundraisers must check State based legislation regarding raffles as there are extensive guidelines regarding this type of fundraising activity.
- State legislation prevents fundraisers from collecting money door-to-door or in public places such as shopping centres unless prior permission is granted.
- Fundraisers will not be covered by indigo foundation’s public liability policy under any circumstances. Any fundraising activities conducted by fundraisers will be undertaken at their own risk.
