Donate your tax credit & restore more sight | The Fred Hollows Foundation NZ

Donate your tax credit & restore more sight

Did you know that you can make your donation extend even further? If you've donated to us in the last financial year, you can claim 33.3% of your gifts as a tax credit from the IRD and donate it back to us. Your extra support will help even more needlessly blind people see again.

Helping more needlessly blind people see is as easy as

1, 2, 3!

Follows these simple steps to donate any or all of your tax credits directly to us:

1. Click here to download your Tax Credit claim form 2016 IR526 and complete this form with your details.

2. Attach your 2016 tax receipt to this form and return it to:
Inland Revenue Department
PO Box 39090
Wellington Mail Centre
Lower Hutt 5045

3. When your tax credit arrives in your bank account, call us on 0800 227 229 to donate it to The Fred Hollows Foundation NZ. 

Donating your tax credit to The Fred Hollows Foundation NZ allows us to reach more people in need of sight-restoring surgery. Thank you for this wonderful extra gift! 

Don’t forget you can make a claim for any donation made to a charitable organisation in New Zealand. Simply get in touch with the Inland Revenue Department and ask for another IR526 - Tax Credit Claim Form.

Tax credits from donations

You can claim 33.3% of donations as a tax credit, up to the limit of your total annual income, and companies and Mäori authorities to the limit of their annual net income.

We can accept your tax credits because we are approved by the Inland Revenue Department as a donee organisation and are also registered with the Charities Commission, which monitors charities on its register.

All donations to The Fred Hollows Foundation NZ of $5 and over are tax deductible in New Zealand.

Help keep Fred’s dream alive.

4 out of 5 people who are blind in the developing world don't need to be. Routine treatment costing as little as $25 can restore sight and hope.
