Donation Receipts

The tragic fires and drought that ravaged Australia have taken a horrific toll on our wildlife and WIRES was deeply moved by the community support we have received nationally and internationally since January 2020.

The overwhelming response is helping us to expand our rescue and rehabilitation services to benefit more animals effective immediately.

WIRES is registered with the Australian Charities & Not-for-Profit Commission (ACNC).

For Australian citizens all donations to WIRES over $2 are tax-deductible. International donors should seek advice regarding the tax status of any donations made.

Annual Receipt for Regular Givers

If you are a WIRES regular monthly donor or Virtual Carer your annual receipt will be emailed or posted to you during July.

Donations via WIRES website using Credit Card

If you have made a donation through our credit card payment system a tax deductible receipt is usually automatically generated by the banking system at the time of the transaction. This receipt will be sent to the email address you used on our donation form. If you have received email confirmation you should retain this receipt for taxation purposes. If you did not receive a receipt please first check your junk email folder.

The Australian Tax Office (ATO) advises that in most circumstances a tax deductible receipt is not required to claim a deduction for a donation to a charity with DGR (Deductible Gift Recipient) status. You are able to claim the deduction using your bank statement or internet banking copy of the transfer details, in most cases this is sufficient evidence of your donation for taxation purposes. 

You can see this advice from the ATO here. Please note that WIRES does have DGR status.
