Step 3 - Review your information and confirm the payment

ANZ Internet Banking for Business Operators can click on the "Request authorisation" button to submit the charity donation to the relevant Authoriser for approval.

Step 4 - View your lodgement receipt
  • Your lodgement receipt is displayed to confirm that your transaction has been submitted successfully.
  • This does not mean the transaction will be processed successfully as that is dependent on the details you have entered being accurate, and on funds being available for the transaction to occur on the set date(s).
  • Please make a note of the receipt number and lodgement number for your own records.

Why is ANZ facilitating donations to a range of charities?

At ANZ we're all about making things convenient and simple for our customers.

  • This service allows you to easily donate a specific amount of money to your charity from your linked ANZ accounts.
Why has ANZ selected the particular charities with which it is participating?

There are over 700,000 not for profit organisations in Australia, so the selection of our partners was not an easy task. The charities selected by ANZ represent a broad range of causes, each as worthy as the next.

How do I know that my donation is reaching the charity?

Our charity donations program uses ANZ Internet Banking's existing Pay Anyone system. ANZ is the facilitator for the transaction between you and your nominated charity and your funds are transferred straight from your account directly to account of the charity.

  • As with the current Pay Anyone functionality, you will receive a lodgement receipt page with the lodgement number and the receipt number for your transaction to confirm the payment.
Is my donation tax deductible?

Generally, gifts of $2.00 and over to deductible gift recipients (including eligible charities) are tax deductible.

  • We recommend that you print and retain a copy of your ANZ Internet Banking lodgement receipt for tax purposes.
