History & information

History and Corporate Governance

The Delta Society began its work in Australia in August 1997, with a grant from the Animal Welfare League of Australia. 

Delta is a registered charity in New South Wales, Queensland, Victoria, South Australia, Western Australia, Tasmania and the ACT, with Public Benevolent Institution and Deductible Gift Recipient status from the Australian Tax Office. It is income and fringe benefits tax exempt and all donations over $2 are tax deductible.

Delta operates on a corporate governance model, with a Chairman and a Board of Directors. Under our constitution no director may receive a fee or any financial reward (other than out of pocket expenses) for their role on the board.

If there is a surplus at the end of any financial year it must be used to maintain and expand the activities of the Delta Society.
