Beyond protecting only your best interests, trusts can be a tool for helping others. Charitable trusts allow you to make tax deductible donations to charitable causes that matter most to you.

Why not start your philanthropic journey today and establish a charitable trust with the help of our expert trust lawyers.

As the name would suggest, for a trust to be considered a ‘charitable trust’, it must hold assets which support a charitable purpose and specifically charities that are officially registered with the Australian Charities and Non-for-profits Commission (ANCN). One of the major benefits of charitable trusts compared to other trusts, is that donating to a charitable trust is not only a great way to use your assets for good, it is also tax deductible.

We can assist you to register your charitable trust as a deductible gift recipient (DGR), so that your trust is eligible to receive tax-deductible donations, help you to manage your trust, and assist with ongoing reporting obligations or compliance issues with the ANCN.
