Gifts in kind

A gift in kind is another way you can make a significant difference to the ACU community

Gifts in kind take many forms and can have a significant impact in achieving special outcomes.

They may include but are not limited to:

  • Shares & securities
  • Real estate
  • Artworks & collectables
  • Equipment
  • Educational resources
  • Professional services
  • Access to venues

Gifts in kind may enhance the student experience, contribute to global outreach programs, or enable ACU to direct valuable budget savings to other areas of need.

Tax deductibility

Often individuals and organisations are not aware that some gifts in kind are also tax-deductible, ie gifts of property or shares. The value is determined by the date of purchase: the purchase value, if donated within 12 months; or, as determined by the Australian Valuation Office (Australian Taxation Office), if purchased more than 12 months before the donation.
