In accordance with Australian fund raising laws, as a financial supporter of NEPCAM, you will receive a tax receipt showing a summary of tax-deductible donations you have made to us as soon as possible after your donation has been received into the NEPCAM Trust Aid Fund bank account. If you are paying on a monthly basis, an annual tax receipt will be sent to you after you have made your last payment in the current financial year.

Depending on your own tax position, the tax receipt may help you claim a tax deduction when it is time to prepare your tax return.

Normally, the tax receipt will be emailed to you. However, if you do not have an email address, it will be posted to you in the mail. We do however appreciate the benefits of the e-mail system because it keeps our postage costs to a minimum.

To help keep our records up to date we'd also appreciate it if you could provide us with your current email and postal address.

Frequently Asked Questions

Question: It’s the end of the financial year and I haven’t received my tax receipt. Why not?

Answer: If you have not received your tax receipt please contact NEPCAM in Australia by email (please see the contact details below).

Question: I have made a donation to you this year, but it’s not considered to be tax deductible. Why not?

Answer: Donations must be $2 and over and have been donated to a tax-deductible appeal to qualify for tax-deductibility. For example, funds you have given to us as part of a competition or promotion or where you have otherwise received a benefit (such as a ticket to a Social Night or to an organised luncheon) are not tax-deductible.

Question: Where can I get NEPCAM financial information?

Answer: For any financial information regarding NEPCAM, please refer to our Annual Report on our website.

Responsibilities

NEPCAM is committed to the welfare of children and their protection from abuse and exploitation. This commitment is spelled out in the NEPCAM Child Protection Policy and the UN Convention of the Rights of the Child (1989).

Every person who engages in the work of NEPCAM, including members of the NEPCAM management team, sponsors and our overseas business partners, share in the responsibility to take every precaution to protect the children and families we serve.

 

NEPCAM Website

NEPCAM is committed to protecting the security, privacy, and dignity of the children whose parents, guardians and community leaders have graciously allowed to be a part of our child sponsorship programs.

The policies below describe how we protect children in relation to the web sponsorship process.

 

Child Security

Children have the right to be completely secure from the fear or reality of any potential abuse (either physical or emotional) resulting from an inappropriate contact by a sponsor or any other person.

You will notice as you proceed through our sponsorship site that we release only limited information about the children.

By agreeing to become a child sponsor, you also agree not to attempt to contact a sponsored child, his or her family or community members, in any manner other than that prescribed and permitted by NEPCAM. Telephone calls, emails, contact on social websites or unplanned visits to the child's residence and community are not allowed by NEPCAM. Letters and packages can be sent to your sponsored child and stickers, bookmarks, photographs can be enclosed but please be aware that all letters are fully vetted before being sent to the child. Please visit our page 'Contact your sponsored child' for further information.

 

Child Privacy

We take potential misuse of child photographs on the web very seriously. Children and their families must be assured that NEPCAM is protecting the integrity of any personal information that they've given us, including photographs. Privacy also demands that children, their families and communities be shielded from any potentially inappropriate contact from sponsors or others.

That's why we don't allow downloading, copying, or replicating photos or other information relating to children and their communities on this website without our prior written permission. Child profiles are presented for the purpose of conveying appropriate information about the sponsorship relationship, and are not to be distributed.

 

Child Dignity

The lives of children, their families, and members of their community should be represented with accuracy and dignity. We consider the children we work with as our partners, working with us to help bring holistic transformation to communities living in poverty. We seek the full, informed consent of parents, guardians, and/or community leaders for a child's participation in our child sponsorship programs.

NEPCAM is committed to the welfare of all children, in particular, the children that are sponsored by this organisation. NEPCAM supporters have a responsibility to protect the children they sponsor and are required to follow the procedures laid down in NEPCAM’s Child Protection Policy, which is available by clicking on the link provided.

This page provides a brief overview of NEPCAM’s procedures relating to the imagery of children.

Child Imagery

In order to help protect the privacy, dignity and personal safety of every sponsored child, NEPCAM has developed the following guidelines in line with the NEPCAM Child Protection Policies.

  • Displaying photos of your sponsored child: Sponsoring a child is a wonderful experience and one we encourage you to share with loved ones. You're welcome to display photos of your sponsored child at your home or personal space at work/business to share your experience of helping a child in need.
  • Copying photos of your sponsored child: NEPCAM is required by law and by our own policies to limit the distribution of information and images of sponsored children. As a child sponsor, you may enlarge a photo of your sponsored child to display it at home or your personal space at work/business, along with basic personal information (name, age and country only), but you'll need our written permission, which you can request by contacting us.
  • Online publishing and emailing photos of your sponsored child: Emailing and publishing photos and personal information of your sponsored child online creates risks to the privacy, dignity and personal safety of the child. We ask you not to place your sponsored child’s photo and/or personal information (age, last name, geographical location, health, education or other) on a website (internet or intranet) or email it to others.

Before photographing or filming a child, assess and endeavour to comply with local traditions or restrictions for reproducing personal images, but in particular, you should:

  • Obtain consent from the child or a parent or guardian of the child. As part of this you must explain how the photograph or film will be used.
  • Ensure photographs, films, videos and DVDs present children in a dignified and respectful manner and not in a vulnerable or submissive manner.
  • Ensure that children are adequately clothed and not in poses that could be seen as sexually suggestive.
  • Ensure images are honest representations of the context and the facts.
  • Never place a photograph and/or personal information (age, last name, geographical location, health, education or other) of a sponsored child online, or on a website or e-mail it to others
  • Understand that the onus is on you, as a person supporting NEPCAM's program activities, to use common sense and avoid actions or behaviour that could be construed as child abuse.

The NEPCAM management team is committed to the protection of all children but in particular the children that are sponsored by this organisation. NEPCAM supporters have a responsibility to protect the children they sponsor and are required to follow the procedures laid down in NEPCAM’s Child Protection Policy.

How can I email my sponsored child?

At NEPCAM, we encourage you to email your sponsored child. Please note that sponsors and children must not email each other directly.

We do not personally know all our sponsors. To prevent a sponsored child receiving an ‘inappropriate’ email, all NEPCAM emails are to be forwarded to: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. where our NEPCAM Sponsorship Coordinator will first check the content of the email before sending it to our overseas business partner for delivery. In checking the email, all personal contact details will be removed. 

When completing the email, the sponsor should clearly identify their child’s name and the sponsor’s name in capital letters in the heading. e.g. “To [NAME OF CHILD] from [NAME OF SPONSOR].”

Similarly, if the sponsored child is able to email his or her sponsor, their email will be sent to the NEPCAM Sponsorship Coordinator for checking and all contact details will be removed before forwarding to the sponsor.
