Kickstart Kids is now tax deductible in Australia.

Sydney, April 2014

Kickstart Kids International Overseas Aid Fund has been accredited by the Australian Tax Office as a Deductible Gift Recipient, making all donations in Australia over $2 tax deductible. This is a significant achievement for Kickstart, and an endorsement of the organisation’s commitment to project sustainability and reporting transparency through compliance with AusAID’s Overseas Aid Gift Deduction Scheme.

Kickstart has a strong supporter base in Australia and from 20 March these supporters will be able to claim tax deductions when making donations. This includes both recurring donations and one off donations made at

The team are hopeful that this will encourage more people to sign up for recurring monthly donations to help support Kickstart’s work with orphaned children at Olturoto Children’s Village in Kenya. A consistent income stream through monthly donations will enable Kickstart to plan ahead for project expansion and improve the quality of care that is provided to the children Kickstart is serving.

This is only possible with the donations received from supporters and it is now easier than ever before to help.
