Wildcare Tasmania currently takes 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. When interest rates are very low, maintaining a $0 fee becomes challenging and we review the situation ongoing. The Covid-19 economic impacts have hit interest rates hard but we are committed to maintaining a $0 fee for as long as we can. If you would like to support us, please know that your donation helps. You can also help by joining us as a member.
Donations to Wildcare Tasmania are managed in accordance with our status as a Registered Environmental Organisation. Grant applications are invited from Wildcare volunteer groups and organisational partners, at least twice per year to ensure that money is getting out onto the ground where needed. Applications are assessed by the Wildcare Nature Conservation Fund Committee; 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.
