Team Yachting Australia Limited has teamed up with the Australian Sports Foundation Limited (ASF) to provide a mechanism for companies, individuals and organisations to
make tax-deductible donations to the ASF to support Team Australia’s pursuit of the America’s Cup.

Team Yachting Australia Limited (TYAL) has registered the ‘34th America's Cup Racing and Challenge’ project with the ASF and fund raising can commence immediately.

Our history of innovation, determination and leadership in the America’s Cup demands that we have an ongoing competitive presence in this competition, and that we create the foundations for Australian marine industry, innovation and expertise, and for talented young Australian sailors, to compete at this ultimate level of world sailing competition - under their own country’s flag.

You can support this Australian initiative by making a tax-deductible donation – there’s even time this financial year!

Donations can be made at any time using the attached ASF donation form. However if you wish to make a donation for this financial year, completed donation forms and cheques (made payable to the ASF) must arrive at the ASF by Tuesday 28 June 2011. Donors contributing by credit card should ensure their completed donation forms with credit card details are faxed or e-mailed to the ASF by COB Wednesday 29 June 2011.
