Kidney Health Australia Looks to Phone Users and Tax Breaks for Donations
Tuesday, 10th November 2009 at 11:32 am

 Kidney Health Australia has launched ‘KHA Comms’ to market mobile, home phone and ADSL services, and fund research into Kidney Disease, provide programs and assist over two million Australians with some form of Chronic Kidney Disease. 

 

Derek Finch, Head of Customer Operations, says customers are able to designate a percentage of their telephone service account as a tax deductible donation to Kidney Health Australia, which will enable them to claim a tax deduction.

 

Finch says that in the case of someone on a $99 Gold monthly plan they will receive a tax deductible credit of over $155 annually.  The same deduction program is available on home phones and ADSL internet services.

 

Finch says that given the current economic situation for many Australian families the KHA Comms initiative will provide considerable savings for families on tight budgets.  He says that people can simply switch their phone accounts over via KHA Comms with a simple phone call and immediately go on the program.

 

Kidney Health Australia does not receive government funding and is entirely funded by the support of the Australian community through fundraising and commercial activities.
