In June 2013, a group of volunteers registered Zephyr Foundation as a Queensland charity after discovering that no government agency or not-for-profit was supplying school uniforms and other school essentials to many children who have to change schools because of domestic violence. Zephyr Foundation’s details were also registered on the Australia Charities and Not-for-profits Register from 15 July 2014.
On 13 January 2015, Zephyr received endorsement by the Australian Taxation Office as a deductible gift recipient as well as endorsement for charity tax concessions, namely, income tax concessions, GST concessions and FBT exemption.
In August 2016, Zephyr Foundation became an incorporated association under the Associations Incorporation Act 1981 (Qld). This necessitated a change of name and we chose the name Zephyr Education Inc to better describe our core purpose.
On 20 October 2016, Zephyr was registered by ASIC as a Registrable Australian body (No.615454227). Zephyr Education Inc is also registered to operate as a charity in Tasmania and Western Australia.
