Donate more with TaxGift
Did you know that every donation you make has a 33.3% tax credit that you can claim back at the end of the financial year?
Not everyone chooses to claim back their credits, so we've partnered with TaxGift, an organisation that helps you donate the tax credits from your donations back to the Waikato Westpac Rescue Helicopter.
Through TaxGift, you can donate up to four years' credits from your donations back to your rescue helicopter - this means your initial donations make even more impact!
And the best part is, it's an easy process - it's as simple as signing up! All you need to do is register your details on the TaxGift website with the Waikato Westpac Rescue Helicopter. That's it - TaxGift will do the rest!
