Australians supporting our Timor archives work can now claim a tax deduction for gifts or donations to CHART.
CHART Inc. has been endorsed by the Australian Taxation Office as a deductible gift recipient, following our successful application to join the official Register of Cultural Organisations (ROCO).
CHART’s Chairman, Bill Armstrong AO, said he was delighted with the endorsement and hoped that donations from philanthropic bodies and supportive individuals would follow.
“CHART currently operates on a shoestring budget, using voluntary labour,” said Mr Armstrong. “I hope this endorsement will ultimately allow us to accelerate our planned digitisation of important Timor archives, and continue our program of assisting people and institutions in Australia who hold Timor materials.”
