The W.H. Pincott Club is working hard to assist the School to continually upgrade the GGS Boat Club fleet and ancillary equipment and has registered with the Australian Sports Foundation (ASF) to assist with these much needed purchases. Through this agreement, donations to the ASF are tax deductible. This is a great way to contribute to the development of sport, support the growth of the Club and receive a tax deduction for your donation.

The Australian Sports Foundation Ltd. was established by the Australian Government to assist organisations in raising funds through donations for the development of sport in Australia. In accordance with the ASF’s listing in the Income Tax Assessment Act (1997) (div 30, s30-90), donations of $2 or more to the ASF are tax deductible.

Donors must contribute unconditionally to the ASF, however their structure makes it possible for you to nominate a preferred beneficiary for your donation, in this case the W.H. Pincott Club Fund. All grants issued to the W.H. Pincott Club will be used to improve the quality and quantity of the equipment: GGS Boat Club’s boats, oars and other requirements.

Donations can be made by cash, cheque (made payable to the Australian Sports Foundation) or credit card. Any contribution is valued, whatever the amount, and the ASF will issue official tax receipts to substantiate your taxation claim.
