Men's and Community Sheds in Wide Bay will have new fundraising opportunities when the Liberal National Government introduces a new law that will allow tax-deductible donations to the Sheds.

Member for Wide Bay Llew O'Brien said from 1 July 2020, anyone who donates $2 or more to a Shed can claim an income tax deduction for that donation.

"I've had the great pleasure of supporting Men's and Community Sheds throughout Wide Bay, and have heard first-hand from many of the locals about what the Sheds mean to them," Mr O'Brien said.

"The Men's Shed program is a huge success and they provide support to so many people – providing a place for some to build and create, while for others it's a reason to get up every day.

"Now it's our turn to provide more support to them."

Mr O'Brien said the new tax-deductions would give people an extra incentive to make a donation, which would in turn help to secure the financial stability of existing Sheds, allow for the expansion of others or even help build more Sheds in Wide Bay.

"I am pleased that the Morrison Government is able to provide this support to Men's and Women's Sheds and in turn to our communities," he said.

"Bringing Australians together is part of our plan for a stronger economy."

The Sheds will join charities including the Red Cross, World Vision and The Smith Family which already have this status, known as a Deductible Gift Recipient.
