Register of Cultural Organisations Grows
Monday, 15th July 2002 at 1:07 pm

Federal Minister for the Arts and Sport, Senator Rod Kemp has approved 19 new additions to the Register of Cultural Organisations.

Inclusion on the Register makes it possible for cultural organisations to offer donors a 100 per cent tax-deduction for donations to a wide range of cultural activities.

Minister Kemp says being able to offer tax incentives to donors is an excellent way for cultural organisation’s to attract private sector support to supplement other sources of income.

The 19 new organisations approved for the Register are:
 The Acting Factory Incorporated, Penrith NSW
 The Armidale City Band Incorporated, Armidale NSW
 Armidale Eisteddfod Society Incorporated, Armidale NSW
 Backbone Youth Arts Association Inc, Brisbane Qld
 Bella Voce Association Incorporated, Aitkenvale Qld
 Bungay Art House Limited, Malvern East Vic
 Forty Five Downstairs Inc, Melbourne Vic
 Goldfields Brass Band (Inc) , Kalgoorlie WA
 The Hephzibah Tintner Foundation, Sydney NSW
 Iranian Society of Queensland Cultural Foundation, Indooroopilly Qld
 Kew Band Inc, Kew East Vic
 Latrobe Valley Eisteddford Traralgon Inc, Traralgon Vic
 Melbourne Dai Loong Association Inc, South Yarra Vic
 No Strings Attached Incorporated, Stepney SA
 Performing Arts Projects Association Incorporated, Blackwood SA
 Poetry Australia Foundation Incorporated, Wollongong University NSW
 Primary Source Inc (T/A Strange Fruit), Brunswick Vic
 Rock Eisteddfod Challenge Foundation, Willoughby NSW
 Townsville Youth Bands Inc, Aitkenvale Qld

The Minister says organisations listed on the Register have received $24 million in the 2000-01 financial year from private sources-a $5 million increase on the previous financial year.

The Government says there are now 845 organisations benefiting from being on the Register-increasing philanthropic opportunities.
