Your Church, group or organisation can partner with Mi-Link, and attain DGR status for certain projects.

Mi-Link is registered with the Australian Tax Office as a charity, and as such, has deductible gift recipient (DGR) status.  As part of our vision to “link people and projects in the developing world with organisations and partners in the developed world”, Mi-Link believes in partnering with other NGOs to establish sustainable community projects.

The Mi-Link board will only approve projects which are compliant with the Overseas Aid Gift Deductible Scheme guidelines and the ethos of our organisation. Detailed information will be required on each project from the prospective partner.

These projects, once approved, receive tax deductibility, and project funds are subjected to an agreed administration levy, with tax receipts given. Written reports and evaluations are also required of the projects, as per a written partnership agreement, and Mi-link representatives will need to inspect and evaluate some of these projects on site.
