Paradise 4 Kids Australia (P4K-AU) operates under “Paradise 4 Kids Inc” incorporated in the United States, an approved Tax Deductible Charity under the IRS.
In Australia we offer Tax Deductible Donations receipts via
HADA – HEALTH & DEVELOPMENT AID ABROAD AUST FD INC
under the regulations of AusAid and the Australian Government.
Donations via HADA can only receive Tax Deductions.
“The Rev Themi & Friends Trust“ is a Australian Trust Deed
set up to receive monetary Gifts. The beneficiary is Rev Themi
to use the funds as he sees fit in his work with the Poor.
“The Rev Themi & Friends Trust” is a PRIVATE TRUST ABN: 82 798 997 785

and are “NOT TAX DEDUCTIBLE“

1. Welfare assistance, that is the running of a mission or institutions, like schools, orphanages Food banks, individual sponsoring and the like activities are expressly excluded; – Not Tax Deductible.
2. The sponsoring of individual students / children to go to school or projects such as clothing and food packages are not permitted.- Not Tax Deductible.
3. Whereas assistance to a community that will help the whole community is tax deductible. Like building a Medical Centre, but not the ongoing expenses of the Medical centre, or building a School, but not the ongoing expenses of the school.
4. If a projects include micro credit, clean water supply or infrastructure benefiting the broader community as a whole, tax deductibility is acceptable.
So, because many people have the expectation that fundraising for the 3rd World is to help feed and clothe, and support the ongoing operation of a mission, we have set up Ezi Gift which is a Non Tax Deductible Donation and therefore goes to welfare projects like Feeding and Clothing children and their families.
Because all P4K staff are volunteers, and no salaries are paid, we are able to send all the funds, in their entirety, to the project except for bank charges levied against us when transferring the funds overseas.
All P4K projects are run by people who are personally known to members of the board and applications go through an examination process of a non related organisation (HADA), so before being accepted as a P4K project, it must pass HADA’s stringent government authorised process.
Once approved, all managers of projects are required to submit three monthly reports, for HADA’s ongoing supervision.
We value our Gift Deductible Recipient status and carefully look at all projects to see if they fit the criteria laid down by the Australian Tax Office. Some donors like to leave the distribution of their funds to the P4K board and send gifts marked “where most needed.” This allows us to help a specific project when a need arises and having this discretion is very much appreciated.
We trust that this explanation of Tax Deductibility is helpful to you in understanding how the system operates. We highly value your confidence and trust in us and thank you for your donations over the past 10 and more years to come.
To comply with AusAid/Ato guidelines, every cent we send Fr Themi for his missionary work must be written into a “Grant” and the funds can only be spent along the Grant Application guidelines. For example, if we apply funds to build an Orphanage, these funds can only be spent building the Orphanage; if we apply funds to feed the poor, Fr Themi is limited to the figure and method in the grant as to how he spends the funds.
Paradise 4 Kids, Inc. has the ultimate authority to use donor contributions at its discretion in furtherance of its exempt purposes. We look forward to putting your contribution to good use to support those suffering from poverty, violence, sickness, and a lack of education in Western Africa, the United States and throughout the world
