How donors can ensure that the funds they are giving are used for the intended purpose
In Australia, Les Pecheurs Internationale is required to channel all funds for overseas projects which it is undertaking in other countries, through an NGO called Global Development Group (GDG), .
In March 2004, the Australian Federal Treasurer declared GDG an “approved organization” under the Overseas Aid Gift Deduction Scheme (OGDS) which means that donations received in Australia by Les Pecheurs and which are channelled through GDG are 100% tax deductable donations for the donor.
GDG, in turn deducts 7.5% from the gross amount of each donation prior to remitting the funds to the relevant country. GDG uses the 7.5% to oversee all of the Projects being undertaken by Les Pecheurs.
Periodically, a GDG representative undertakes a visit to Madagascar and to carry out a detailed audit of all aspects of the LPM organisation and operations. This obviously includes close checking of the utilisation of funds to ensure that they have been used for the purpose which they were committed to be used.
GDG is accountable to the Australian Council for the International Development (ACFID), the Federal Department of Foreign Affair and Trade (DFAT) and the Australian Charities and Not for Profit Commission (ACNC).
How to donate?
Please follow the following steps:
Go to the following link which will bring you to GDG’s “Donate” Page
Make sure to put "J782N Les Pecheurs Development Projects" when the page is requesting the "Preferred Project & 'J' Number".
Finally, as Australian privacy laws prevent GDG advising us of the source of the donations they receive, we ask that you send your donation directly to GDG and then complete the following information below so that we can send you periodic reports on how the funds you have donated have been used.
