Tax Gift

Make your gifts go even further

With Mercy Ships and TaxGift, you can make your generosity go even further and have an even bigger impact to bring free healthcare services to people in desperate need, all without costing you a cent.

And it only takes 60 seconds.

By opting in to TaxGift, the experts at TaxGift will claim the tax rebates on all of your eligible donations to Mercy Ships and donate them back to Mercy Ships on your behalf. Your donations continue giving throughout the years, amplifying your gift by over 40% over time. That’s a powerful gift!

It costs nothing to sign up and takes less than a minute.

If you are a New Zealand resident who has received taxable income (including pension), and not previously claimed, then you are entitled to a 33% rebate on each donation that you’ve made to Mercy Ships. These rebates can be claimed for the last 4 tax years.

Think about that for a second. For every $100 you donate to Mercy Ships, you will give another $33. What’s more, this $33 is considered a further gift of money meaning that $11 is claimable the following year and so on: after three years, your $100 donation could be worth up to $148!

It mightn’t sound like a lot by itself, but it could make a huge difference.

To be clear: your donation gives again, AT NO COST TO YOU, and no money leaves your bank account.

Simply click on the link below, fill in a few details, and the experts at TaxGift sort the rest out with the IRD. It’s completely free and takes less than a minute.

So please click on the link and help your gift to keep giving to those in need.

Historical tax rebates

You can also help even further. If you haven’t claimed your tax rebate on donations to Mercy Ships in the past four years, simply tick the box in the form regarding the past four years’ donations and the team at TaxGift will claim them as a further gift to Mercy Ships.
