Parklands Albury Wodonga Ltd is both an ITEC (Income Tax Exempt Charity) and has DGR (Deductible Gift Recipiency) status, with a listing on the Environmental Organisations Register.  This means we are able to issue tax deductible receipts for donations.

Thank you to the independent Public Fund Management Committee members John Watson (Wodonga Councilor and former Board member), Brian Harty (semi-retired Business Consultant) and Dougald Frederick (Crowe Howarth Chartered Accountant) for their time and expertise to oversee the establishment of this Public Fund and all related expenditure.
