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, which needs to be matched
by others in order to be donated to the project.
Match donations give others the incentive to donate, as their
donation is effectively "doubled". 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 supporters.
You can have a match donor profile on the project page (for
example, your company logo or family name) or you can remain
The process is easy. If you've committed to a match donation,
you'll receive an invitation to give your donation, which needs to
be paid prior to the project start date. We will issue the match
donor an 'Advice for donation', and once the donation has been
paid, the match donation will be applied to and shown on the
Boosted project page to all other donors (whether anonymous or
If the project is successful, we will send a receipt to the
match donor after the project has closed. This receipt can be used
to claim a 33% tax credit. If the project is unsuccessful, the
donation will be refunded within 48 hours of project
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.
