Please read and accept these Terms and Conditions before engaging in fundraising for the 2017 Special Olympics Australia Junior National Games.
Money raised from fundraising activities and/or donations raised through your fundraising will be allocated against your levy payment as long as it has been processed and received by Special Olympics Australia.
Everyone who donates to the fundraising pages (apart from direct family members, due to fundraising guidelines) will receive a tax-deductible donation receipt.
If a direct family member wants to contribute they can only do so as a levy payment and not via your on-line fundraising page as a donation.
Donations can only be accepted via a Special Olympics fundraising page. Once credit card payment is processed and completed, your levy payment status is automatically updated and a tax-deductible donation receipt is issued.
If your supporter gives you a cheque (this is not our preferred option) the cheque should be made payable to Special Olympics Australia. The athlete’s name and SOMS number must be written on the back of the cheque. If a tax-deductible donation receipt is requested, the name, postal address, phone number and email address (if available) of the donor must be either written on the back of the cheque or put in as a note when you post the cheque to Special Olympics Australia.
Money raised from raffle, sausage sizzles or other fundraising activities
Money raised from raffle, sausage sizzles or other fundraising activities are non-tax deductible and includes 10% GST.
Cash from fundraising activities should immediately be given to the Treasurer or other officer of your club who is authorised to accept money. They will deposit the money into your club’s bank account and transfer it across to the head office bank account when your next installment is due.
Cheque from fundraising activities should be made payable to Special Olympics Australia. The athlete’s name and SOMS number must be written on the back of the cheque or put in as a note when you post the cheque to Special Olympics Australia.
There will be no refunds on donations. If an athlete fundraises above and beyond the target, only the funds paid from his/her own pocket (excluding the deposit) can be refunded and other fundraising monies will be used to assist other athletes on the team.
