Grant Terminology

DGR & TCC status

Many grant providers require applicants to have either Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) or Tax Concession Charity (TCC) status.

A DGR is an organisation that is entitled to receive income tax deductible gifts and deductible contributions. Can your organisation issue a tax receipt for donations? If so, you probably have the DGR status required for grant applications.

A TCC is endorsed by the Australian Tax Office to access one or more of the following tax concessions:

  • Income tax exemption

  • Goods and services tax (GST) charity concessions

  • Fringe benefits tax (FBT) rebate

  • FBT exemption.

You can find out more information on the Australian Tax Office website.
