MY MONEY NEEDS ART
Whether you're making the art or making it happen, Boosted is
about what you can give.
Boosted lets donors hand pick projects they'd like to support
and make a difference with as little as $5. With Boosted,
supporting the arts isn't just something rich people do (no
offence, rich people… we love ya!) but something for anyone who can
afford a cup of coffee.
Be a Boosted Donor
If you've got a spare $5 or a lazy $500, we'd love you to get
involved. Boosting a project is easy. Choose a
project and click on DONATE.
Whether you're an individual, a business, a group or an
organisation, you'll be making a real difference to the arts in New
Zealand. In most cases, donors can claim a 33% tax credit
from Inland Revenue. Give $100, get $33 back.
Be a Match Donor
A match donor offers a fixed amount that needs to be matched by
others in order to be donated to the project.
Match donations give others the incentive to donate. Both you
and those who support the Boosted project double their money. If
you are a company, it is an excellent way to show your support for
a project and develop a close relationship with the project's
The process is easy. If you've committed to a match donation,
you'll receive an invitation to give your donation. If the Boosted
project is successful, you will receive a receipt to claim your tax
credit. You can have a match donor profile on the project page (for
example, your company logo or family name) or you can remain

Tax & Boosted
Donations are made to the Arts Foundation to support
pre-approved Boosted projects. When the project meets its target,
the Arts Foundation grants an amount equivalent to 90% of the
donations to the project. The Arts Foundation is a registered
charity with the Department of Internal Affairs.
Donors who have supported successful projects will receive a
receipt for tax purposes.
Generally, donations from qualifying individuals can claim a 33%
tax credit up to the donor's taxable income for the tax year.
We go in to depth around tax credits and giving in the
blog Give to the Arts.
To claim your credit, fill in a credit claim form (IR526),
attach a copy of your donation receipt and send it to the Inland
Revenue Department. Boosted will acknowledge every donation at the
time of payment, but won't issue a donation receipt until the
project is successful.
If you are unsure if you qualify for the tax credit please
discuss this with your tax advisor or visit the Inland Revenue
Department New Zealand.
