How the EPCF works & tax benefits
Eyre Peninsula Community Foundation Inc is the Trustee responsible for the operation of three trust funds which were established with separate Deeds of Trust:
- Eyre Peninsula Community Foundation Trust
- Eyre Peninsula Community Foundation General Fund
- Eyre Peninsula Disaster Fund
The EPCF Trust is a Public Fund with Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) status. Under taxation law DGR status makes it possible for donors to claim a tax deduction for donations over $2.00.
The EPCF General Fund is a Public Fund with Tax Concession Charity (TCC) status. Under taxation law TCC status means that the General Fund is exempt from paying income tax. Donations to the General Fund are for those persons not requiring a tax deduction.
The Disaster Fund is a Public Fund with Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) status. Donations (over $2.00) to the Disaster Fund are tax deductible and benefits can be provided direct to individuals that have suffered in a disaster.
The EPCF can help donors seek professional advice if necessary before making their gift.

Please note: Tax deductibility only available for donations to the EPCF Trust account or the Home Hospice Fund. Giving envelopes are available from funeral homes and donations will be directed to the fund requested by the family.
