As Stas has a business visa it should be both legal and tax deductable to pay to
attend the session. All Stas needs to do is provide you with a receipt for the
payment. You should be able to treat this receipt just like you would any
receipt/invoice you got from any other Australian entity for a conference,
business event or similar.
Of course if you don't ask for a receipt then you can't claim it, but being the
honest person he is, Stas will still have to tell the ATO at the end of this
financial year how much he received.
Unless something really strange happens, it'll probably be under $6000 so he
won't actually have to pay tax on it.

that they don't tell *everyone* what they're donating, but they still get the
