The LBW Trust and DGR1 Status

Updated: Mar 20

The LBW Trust (Learning for a Better World) believes that education is the pathway to a better future.


When it comes to philanthropy and charitable contributions, understanding the nuances of Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) status is crucial. The LBW Trust, with its DGR1 status, stands at the forefront of organisations making a tangible impact. This blog post delves into the significance of DGR1 and its implications for The LBW Trust.

What is DGR1 Status?

DGR1 stands for Deductible Gift Recipients, a special status by the Australian Taxation Office. 

The "1" in DGR1 signifies a unique distinction - organisations with DGR1 status are directly involved in activities that serve the public interest. This special designation allows them to receive tax-deductible donations, providing a powerful incentive for donors to contribute to meaningful causes.

The LBW Trust and DGR1: A Winning Combination

The LBW Trust is a charity partner with Cricket Australia and holds DGR1 status, marking it as a Doing DGR.

This distinction opens doors to a broader range of donors, including Private Ancillary Funds, making it an attractive choice for those seeking to make tax-deductible donations.

1. The LBW Trust Engages in Public Service Initiatives

The LBW Trust's commitment to public service is evident through its DGR1 status. By directly participating in activities that benefit the public and communities, the Trust aligns with the core principles of DGR1, ensuring that every donation contributes to initiatives that drive positive change.

2. Tax-Deductible Donations for a Broader Donor Base

The DGR1 status of The LBW Trust transforms it into a philanthropic magnet, attracting a diverse pool of donors. 

Private Ancillary Funds and Public Ancillary Funds, in particular, find The LBW Trust appealing for their charitable contributions, knowing that their donations are tax-deductible.

3. The LBW Trust Making Lasting Community Impact

With DGR1 status, The LBW Trust has the financial backing to amplify its impact on education to a better future. The tax-deductible nature of donations encourages more significant contributions, allowing the organization to execute ambitious projects, support education initiatives, and create lasting change in communities.

How Donors Benefit

Donors play a pivotal role in advancing The LBW Trust's mission, and DGR1 status enhances the value of their contributions. By making tax-deductible donations, supporters contribute to positive social change and enjoy financial benefits through reduced taxable income.

In Conclusion

In the dynamic landscape of charitable giving, The LBW Trust's DGR1 status serves as a beacon of hope and transformation. The alignment with DGR1 principles opens doors to a wider donor base but also reinforces the organization's commitment to public service.

As The LBW Trust continues to make strides in its impact, the synergy of DGR1 status and philanthropic support propels it towards a future where education and communities flourish.
