FLYING FOR LIFE CHARITABLE TRUST
The trust supports MAF’s life-saving projects overseas.
Since April 2017 MAF New Zealand has had approval as an Overseas Tax Donee organisation through the Flying for Life Charitable Trust. Donations gifted for overseas projects are sent through this trust enabling the donor to receive a tax credit of 33% for the gift. Donors are able to receive this back from Inland Revenue via a donation tax credit claim.
