Make your donations go even further!
Did you know that your charitable donations are tax deductible? Claiming your tax credit and donating it back to Oxfam is a fantastic way to make your donation go further. Should you choose to donate your year-end tax credit to Oxfam, you can be assured that your generous gift will be used where it’s needed most, fighting poverty and inequality.
Are you leaving your tax credits unclaimed?
Donations to Oxfam are eligible for a 33.33 percent tax credit from the Department of Inland Revenue (IRD). Yet, half of all donations made to New Zealand charities are left unclaimed.
It's now even easier to claim your tax credits
Our partnership with Supergenerous means you won’t have to worry about filling in forms anymore… When you sign up, Supergenerous will claim your charity tax credits for you, on your behalf!
