RIDMA Foundation

achieves registered charity status


It is with great pleasure that we announce RIDMA Foundation Inc. had achieved registered charity stratus in Australia.
What this means to you? Any donations that you make to RIDMA Foundation Inc. is now Tax Deductible.

Dear Community well-wishers,

We are proudly announcing that RIDMA Foundation Inc. has been granted the full membership of the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC).

ACNC is the Australian statutory body and the national regulator of the voluntary sector, including charities and other Not-for-Profits. It was announced in the 2011 Australian federal budget and has operated since 3 December 2012.

Being listed on the ACNC, your RIDMA Foundation legally became the one of the first Sri Lankan charity organisation in WA to achieve this milestone.

It would make us stronger to extend our generous helping hand to more deprived people across the Australian shores.

This is an absolute result of all your hard work and commitment towards RIDMA vision and mission.

The path to this achievement was not a smooth ride on a flowered road.
We had to keep our transparency which had been the instinctive culture within RIDMA.
Each financial statement, every cent we earned/spent has been justified, evaluated, monitored and audited during the RIDMA history.

Our RIDMA system, having strong organisation structure backed by transparent financial accounting practice and a powerful constitution, was well set and played a major role to become such a dedicated organisation in Australia.

By achieving this milestone, once again, RIDMA Foundation has proved that our Perth community can continue to trust us as your preferred partner for helping less privileged children.

As a result of ACNC membership, RIDMA have been endorsed as a Deductible Gift Recipients’ status (DGR) by Australian Tax Office (ATO). Since 05-Aug-2017, if you make any contribution/donation/sponsorship to our scholarship program, rural school development program or other charitable activity, full amount of the donation is eligible to claim tax deduction.

Thank You
RIDMA Foundation Inc.
