It is your responsibility as the organiser to ensure appropriate financial management of your event
Receipts for tax deductible donations of $2 or more can only be issued by SA Police Legacy so if any of your supporters have asked for a receipt, please collect their information and provide this to
SA Police Legacy together with the funds raised. Please note that tax deductible receipts cannot be issued if a person receives goods, services or ‘a chance to win’ in return for the money given (i.e. they purchase an auction item or raffle tickets) or if there are directions given as to how the funds may be used, to comply with Australian Taxation Office law.
For some collection activities licenses may be required by local or state government authorities. Please ensure that you comply with all requirements before commencing.
If the activity involves working with children or other vulnerable people a National Police Clearance will be required for each person involved. If the activity involves children with special needs, a DCSI screening is required for each person involved.
Your event will not be covered by SA Police Legacy Inc. insurance so it is important to ask your own insurer about cover for any event you are planning.
You will have a health and safety responsibility to participants so please ensure you consider need for first aid, hygiene laws and best practice, and have a risk assessment to check for potential hazards and measures to minimise risk of injury.
