1. “Donation” means a contribution that voluntarily transferred by one person to another without compensation or benefit flowing from the giver to the receiver.  A donation is a transfer that is motivated by detached or disinterested generosity or out of affection, respect, admiration, charity, or similar impulses. Generally, donations are irrevocable, and beyond a possible designation of use, the donor does not impose contractual requirements or subsequent reports as a condition of the donation.

 2. Donations are accepted by Encouragement Enterprises Inc. (EEI) on behalf of Global Deaf Vision (GDV) to further the objects and purposes for which GDV was set up, consistent with the objects of EEI and GDV.

3. A donor may designate a donation to be put to a specific purpose. All of those funds will be put to that purpose, deposited within 24 hours in the proper account, and an official receipt issued, with acknowledgement  sent to the donor.

4. DONATION RECORDS.  EEI shall oversee the receipt, recording, depositing, and acknowledgment of donations.  Annual reports based on an independent audit of accounts are submitted at the end of each calendar year to the Australian Capital Territory Office of Regulatory Services as required by Law for Charitable Associations. 

5. EEI  actively solicit donations from individuals, churches  and foundations, and other entities to help fulfil its mission of teaching, learning, promotion of Deaf missions endeavours globally.  

6. TAX DEDUCTIBILITY.  EEI is not registered as a tax exempt organization, so no ta benefits accrue to donors.  In recognition of EEI’s charitable nature the Australian Tax Office refunds GST paid with GST collected from sales deducted.

7. ACCOUNTABILITY:  EEI Executive Directors are accountable to their Board of Officers, who supervise the activities and authorize expenditures of EEI staff, being accountable to the ACT Office of Regulatory Services to conduct the affairs of EEI according to the relevant Acts of Parliament.
