You are allowed to claim a tax deduction for a gift as long as it meets the following conditions:

  • The gift must be to a DGR
  • The gift must be money or property
  • The gift must be a gift, which basically means you receive nothing in return

What can't you claim?

  • Any gift/donation where you receive something in return, such as chocolates, pens and raffle tickets
  • Payments to school building funds
  • Cost of attending a fundraiser
