Anzac Centenary

(Question No. 1938)

Senator Ronaldson asked the Minister representing the Minister for Veterans’ Affairs upon notice on 27 June 2012.

Has the Anzac Centenary Advisory Board been granted deductible gift recipient status; if so, on what date.

Senator Bob Carr: The Minister for Veterans’ Affairs has provided the following answer to the honourable Senator’s question:

The Government is currently considering whether to provide Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) status to public donations made in support of the Anzac Centenary.

However, DGR status, if granted, would not be linked to the Anzac Centenary Advisory Board but to a specified Anzac Centenary fund in which the donations will be received.
