Wanting to add some triumph to your tax return? Eleven days out from the end of the financial year, why not make a tax deductible donation to Gig Buddies Sydney?
Did we point out that any donation over $2 can be reclaimed from July 1st? That’s less than two weeks away and hopefully a tempting enticement to temporarily part with your dough via our PayPal page. In order to process your return, please keep hold of the automated tax deductible receipt you will receive.
“But what do I get for my donation?”
That’s a fair question.
Simply put, money raised will go towards volunteer training, the facilitation of the initial meet-and-greet between a matched gig buddy and their volunteer, or costs associated with processing the required police checks.
After all, going to a live event is a rite of passage for virtually all in the community. We stand to tackle social isolation and create opportunities that the majority of us take for granted, and your tax deductible donation will go towards ensuring we get more people out to live gigs.
It’s been a while since we have run a fundraising campaign, and between drinks we’ve definitely come a long way: from this time last year to the present day, we’ve received another 100 gig buddy and just under 200 volunteer applications', and we’ve now over 30 active pairings (including those who appear in our new Facebook cover photo, below) attending live events.
Continuing to build on these numbers and getting more people out to live events is what we’re all about.
Thank you for your ongoing support, and happy tax time!
