In order to participate in the Muscle Team Adventure Challenge, you must agree to the Terms & Conditions as outlined below. Muscular Dystrophy South Australia (MDSA) reserves the right to cancel a participant’s involvement in the Adventure Challenge on the grounds of failure to meet these requirements.
It is your objective to reach your fundraising goals within the deadlines below, unless other terms are negotiated with the Fundraising Team.
1 December 2016 $1,000.00
6 February 2017 $2,000.00
3 April 2017 $3,000.00
All funds raised must be deposited with MDSA by Friday 14 April 2017.
Donations of $2 or more are tax deductible and your donor will be issued with a Deductible Gift Receipts (DGR) .
Donations (or ‘gifts’) have the following characteristics:
- there is a transfer of money or property
- they are made voluntarily
- they do not provide a material benefit to the donor
- they essentially arise from benefaction, and proceed from detached and disinterested generosity.
Therefore, DGRs cannot be issued for payments relating to your travel component.
Please note that funds raised through a fundraising activity or event where material benefit is received by supporters are not eligible for a tax deductible receipt - this includes instances where food, beverages, meals, wine or chocolate are supplied. This money cannot be banked through the fundraising portal as this will generate a receipt, but should be banked by means of EFT transfer or cash deposit to MDSA.
As these funds are not classified as gifts, they may be used to make payment of your travel costs.
For more details on DGRs, please visit: www.ato.gov.au/non-profit/gifts-and-fundraising/in-detail/faqs/
Your travel component includes the following:
