TaxGift: Make Your Donation Go Even Further

Did you know that your donations to us attract a tax credit?

All charitable donations in New Zealand are tax-deductible, and you are entitled to a rebate on every donation to the Rural Youth and Adult Literacy Trust (RYALT).

Donating your tax rebate to RYALT is a great way to make your gift go even further.


We’ve partnered with TaxGift to make this as easy as possible for you! TaxGift lets you donate your tax refund from any donations to the Rural Youth and Adult Literacy Trust in just one easy step.

If you are an individual New Zealand tax resident who has received taxable income in the current financial year, then you are entitled to a rebate of up to 33% on every donation you have made to RYALT.

How it works

Here’s how it works: for every $100 you’ve donated to RYALT, we will receive another $33 at the end of the first year. What’s more, this $33 is considered a further gift of money, meaning that around $11 is claimable the following year and so on!

After three years, your $100 donation could be worth up to $148!

Historical tax credits

If you haven’t claimed your tax credit on donations to RYALT over the past four years, simply tick the box on the form where it asks about past donations, and the team at TaxGift will claim them as a further gift to Sweet Louise. This is a powerful way to help put those unclaimed credits to good use.

How to opt-in

Simply click on the link below to opt into TaxGift and gift your tax credits on donations to help rural and isolated people with literacy issues.

You’ll need to fill in a few details, and then you can leave it to the experts at TaxGift to sort the rest out with Inland Revenue.

It’s entirely free for you to use and only takes around one minute to do!

Please note that the Rural Youth and Adult Literacy Trust will not have access to your tax, financial or personal information.
