ICTV is a community-based, not-for-profit public company limited by guarantee. We are registered as a Public Benevolent Institution with Deductible Gift Recipient Status (DGR).
While ICTV enjoys financial support from the Australian Federal Government for a significant percentage of costs to operate our distribution platforms, we need to generate at least 20% of costs through philanthropy or through minor commercial operations.
Philanthropic support and donations to ICTV assist in the following ways:
- Ensures ICTV continues to deliver a culturally appropriate and cost-effective television and on-demand service for Indigenous Australians.
- Supports remote contributors through equipment and training.
- Assists in costs toward broadcast coverage of live community, such as Sports Carnivals, historic anniversaries such as the Wave Hill Walk-Off, Native Title Determinations and more.
- Contributes towards the running of our biennial festival FRAIM (Festival of Remote Australian Indigenous Moving-Image), which includes a training program, nightly screenings and ICTV Video Awards.
