DONATIONS

Wildcare  Tasmania is a not for profit charity that cares for wild places and wildlife in Tasmania, through our Nature Conservation Fund.  Most projects are value-added through the work of volunteers who work alongside land managers and other conservation organisations.  Wildcare Tasmania is managed by a small team of 1.7FTE staff and many volunteers.  Our Board, Grants Assessment Committee and approximately 60 ‘Friends of … ‘ groups all donate their time.

We currently take a $0 fee cut from donations and we’re working hard to maintain this.  Read more in the ‘How your donation is managed’ section below.

We have identified a range of causes below that align to the work of our volunteers and our organisational partners.

We sincerely thank you for your interest in supporting our work.  All donations to Wildcare Tasmania are tax-deductible.

Large donations and ‘natural partnerships’

Our online system is set up to accept donations up to $10,000. If you would like to donate a larger sum, then our CEO would love to speak to you personally to make the arrangements and to discuss any specific purpose that you are interested in supporting.  We’re open to new potential donation causes, significant projects and ‘natural partnerships’.  We aim to stay relevant and in touch with the important issues.  Please email ceo@wildcaretas.org.au or phone 0361654230.

Donating from overseas

If you would like to make a donation to Wildcare Tasmania from outside of Australia we thank you warmly and ask that you drop us an email at bookkeeper@wildcaretas.org.au.  We will be in touch with our bank account details.  We prefer to provide our bank account details individually to make sure that we are able to direct your donation according to your wishes when it appears in our bank account.  For security reasons we are sorry that our credit card portal is not automatically open to overseas transactions.   

How your donation is managed

We record 100% of your donation against your chosen cause in our accounts.  We take great care to ensure that this money goes towards projects that align to the scope of the cause as described on each donation page.  So if you donate to the Penguins cause for example, your money will go towards care of penguins and not something else.

We currently take a $0 admin fee from donations.  Yes that’s right.  We keep our admin costs low which allows expenses to be absorbed within interest earnings.  We know that a $0 fee is rare and we work hard to maintain this.  Interest rates are currently extremely low and so maintaining a $0 fee is challenging, however, we are committed to maintaining a $0 fee for as long as we can.  If you would like to support us in this quest, please know that each and every amount that you donate helps.  You can also help by joining us as a member which will allow you to join a volunteer group if you wish to, or to simply read about all of the projects!

Donations are managed in accordance with our status as a Registered Environmental Organisation.  Grant applications are invited from Wildcare volunteer groups and organisational partners, at a minimum twice per year to ensure that money is getting out onto the ground where needed.  In cases of urgent need, we consider grant applications outside of the normal schedule.  

Applications are assessed by the Wildcare Nature Conservation Fund Committee, who are a group of highly qualified people who are passionate about Tasmania’s wild places and wildlife.  

This governance process means that donors are able to claim a tax deduction for donations. 

Thank you sincerely in anticipation for any donation you are able to make.
