Donating to FRRR is an effective way for those with connections to, or even just an interest in, rural and regional Australia to give something back.
From education to the environment, health to the arts, FRRR’s grant programs help rural, regional and remote community groups implement local solutions that unlock potential.
Donate to FRRR and help connect more rural communities with resources they need. FRRR has a wide range of programs to which individuals can donate. Funds can be directed to any one of these programs simply by either selecting the program when making an online donation, or specifying the details on a donation form. All donations over $2 made via FRRR are tax deductible.
FRRR can also work with you and your financial advisors if you wish to consider setting up your own Trust or Foundation, to facilitate giving on a larger or more long-term scale. If you wish to discuss this option, please get in touch with our CEO.
If you make a donation directly from your pay, it's tax free. To support FRRR, talk to your employer about adding FRRR to your workplace giving platform. If you don't have a workplace giving platform, our Workplace Giving page has more information about what they are and how to set them up.
Alternatively, you can donate right here on our website with the online donation form.
Leaving a bequest
Individual donors can also choose to support FRRR by leaving a bequest in your Will. We have had many generous donors make this commitment – sometimes with just a few hundred dollars, but in other cases leaving a much larger legacy.
A bequest is simply a gift to a charity of your choice, which you note in your Will. There are a number of different ways in which you can leave a bequest to FRRR. For example:
- A pecuniary bequest is a fixed amount specified in your Will
- Gifts of shares or property are exempt from capital gains tax
- A residuary bequest is the remaining value of your estate when all other bequests to family and friends have been made and your liabilities have been paid
- A reversionary bequest allows a surviving partner to benefit from your estate during his or her lifetime and then for the balance of the estate to be paid to FRRR on their death.
Please note that if you are planning to make a bequest, it must be formally detailed in your Will. As a will is a binding document, we recommend that you seek professional advice in its preparation. The following wording may be helpful as you consider how best to include a gift to FRRR. Your solicitor or trustee company can help you with this.
I give and bequeath to The Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal, for its general purpose, (please include your bequest option here), and I declare that a receipt from its Treasurer or other authorised officer shall be sufficient discharge to my trustees.
