The Register of Cultural Organisations now includes promotion of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander languages as a purpose eligible for deductible gift recipient endorsement (DGR). This status entitles individuals giving gifts or donations above $2 to a DGR endorsed organisation to claim those gifts as tax deductions on personal income tax. Previously, organisations promoting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander languages were excluded from accessing this tax status, a change which now supports work towards preserving disappearing Indigenous languages and culture. For more information on DGR, view the plain English guide to DGR available on the Justice Connect Not-for-Profit law website and contact Justice Connect with a legal enquiry if you believe your your organisation could be eligible for DGR because it works to promote Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander languages.
