Donation Rebates

Wellington College’s partnership with Supergenerous

You can claim back tax credits against donations you’ve kindly made to Wellington College in the past, 4 years and regift these to the College. We’ve partnered with Supergenerous, who offer a simple tool which enables you to register and provide a few details and they take care of the rest. Wellington College will receive the tax credits from your previous, and future, donations which we will invest in initiatives to help the boys of Wellington College.

Supergenerous lets you donate your tax refund from any donations to Wellington College (including your son’s annual School Donation), in just one easy step. If you are an individual New Zealand tax resident who has received taxable income in the current financial year, then you are entitled to a rebate of up to 33% on each donation you’ve made to Wellington College.

How it works

  • Register – Tell Supergenerous about your donations to Wellington College over the last four years and provide some details, including your IRD number (They can also assist you with donations to other organisations you may have made).
  • Claim – Supergenerous will make the claim on your behalf, and send you updates along the way.
  • Rebate – Any rebates you decide to re-gift to Wellington College will be organised on your behalf, and you’ll receive a confirmation report from Supergenerous.

For every $100 dollars you have donated (or will donate) to the College, we will receive another $33 at the end of the first year.

It might not sound like a lot by itself, but this would help provide more funds for the school to deliver further:

  • Resources to support learning, such as: updating and maintaining IT equipment, including audio-visual gear, projectors and state-of-the-art computers technology equipment for specialist subjects such as STEAM and robotics specialist equipment for areas such as music, sports and performing arts
  • Support extra resources for music and sports programmes.

Roughly 60% of New Zealanders don’t claim their donation rebates.

That’s $1B of charitable rebates every four years that goes unclaimed. Imagine what $1B back to charities, religious organisations and schools like Wellington College could do!

Appointing Supergenerous as your tax agent for the purpose of donation rebates simply allows them to prepare, file and sign an IR526 (a donation specific tax return) with Inland Revenue on your behalf to claim the available tax credits for Wellington College. Importantly, this does not affect any other tax agents that you might have appointed for other reasons (for example, if you have an accountant who does your income tax returns).

Please note that once you have signed up, you will not be able to claim this tax credit for yourself.
