Charities supporting supporters
Charities could ask their taxpaying supporters to help an innovative startup and claim $10,000 tax offset. The startup might get $6,000 per taxpayer and the taxpayers get $4,000 each. If they give the $4,000 to the charity they still make money from their $4,000 tax deduction. The charity ensures that they cannot lose this $4,000 in the startup arrangements. The charity should expect to get most of the $4,000, maybe more if the startup fails and maybe much more if the startup succeeds.
