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 33% on the donations you’ve made to us. But if you choose to TaxGift that tax credit to Wellington College, TaxGift will turn it into even more for our school – all as a gift in your name.

Here’s how:

By signing up with TaxGift your total $840 school donation becomes $1,258 (an additional $418 to us) at no additional cost to you!

By TaxGifting you make a real difference to our school. These additional funds will continue to allow us to offer a wide range of subject choices, smaller class sizes, extra curricular activities and maintain and develop our outstanding facilities for our boys.

Historical tax credits

Here’s how you can help even further: if you haven’t claimed your tax credit on donations to us in the past four years, simply tick the box on the form when you sign up and the team at TaxGift will claim them as a further gift to us. This is a really powerful way to put thoseunclaimed credits to good use.

How to opt in

To opt in to TaxGift simply click on the link. It only takes a minute to sign up, won’t cost (we pay TaxGift a small fee for this service) and you won’t need to do anything more. Your donations for this tax year on will be captured. 

What else should I know?

It won’t cost you anything to sign up to TaxGift; no money leaves your bank account (although the school pays TaxGift a small fee for its services). Signing up to TaxGift appoints TaxGift as your tax agent solely for the purpose of gifting your tax credits back to our school. Don’t worry - it does not affect any other tax agents that you might have (for example, if you have an accountant who does your tax returns). You must be an individual New Zealand tax resident who has earned taxable income in the relevant tax year to be eligible for the tax credit and you can opt out ofTaxGift at any time by emailing their friendly team.
