Are donations tax deductible?
Yes! The United Israel Appeal Relief Fund Limited (ABN 75 071 207 094) is endorsed by the Australian Taxation Office as an Item 1 deductible gift recipient. This means donations of $2 and over to the United Israel Appeal Relief Fund Limited are tax deductible.
Where does the money go?
Funds raised are directed to a range of different projects that the State of Israel deems are of a ‘national priority’. These includes supporting aliyah and absorption, services and supports for immigrants, helping youth-at-risk, programs to close educational gaps, renovation of bomb shelters and ensuring that Holocaust survivors are able to live the rest of their lives in peace and security. We create and sponsor a range of programs which are designed to combat the root causes of social foundering and ensure that current and future generations are improved. Many of these programs, such as our Absorption Centres, Youth Villages or Ayalim, are about strengthening the community at large and making the country a better place for Israelis both young and old.

Are ticket costs for events tax deductible?
