Pittwater Environmental Foundation

Welcome to the Pittwater Environmental Foundation

Pittwater Environmental Foundation was established in 2006 to receive donations, grants and bequests to conserve and enhance the natural environment of Pittwater.

Population pressure continues to be major threat to our unique natural heritage throughout Australia. While areas such a Pittwater will never attract sufficient government funding to soften the impacts of urbanization on our natural heritage, donations from local communities committed to preserving the landscape for future generations, can make the difference.
The Pittwater Environmental Foundation is a registered Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) and can receive income tax deductible gifts and donations.

Conditional donations will be subject to Pittwater Environmental Foundation approval.

All donations will be directed to projects within the Pittwater area identified as a priority by the Pittwater Environmental Foundation and spent on project work.

How are projects chosen?

Pittwater Environmental Foundation believes that the best long-term environmental outcomes are achieved by funding projects which are integrated with the natural resource management ‘big picture’.

To achieve this Pittwater Environmental Foundation works closely with Pittwater Council, State and Federal Government and other stakeholders to identify and prioritise environmental issues in our area.

Pittwater Environmental Foundation’s role is that of decision-making, oversight and review.

Pittwater Environmental Foundation welcomes local community applicants for funds and will greenlight local projects which satisfy our criteria and are considered to be the most effective use of current Fund monies. All proposals should be consistent with Pittwater Council’s Environmental Plan and may propose work which integrates and enhances Council projects

The Pittwater Environmental Foundation welcomes donations, gifts and bequests from private donors

Could you be that person?

PEF is supported by generous donations, bequests and  legacies, and on the ground support from individuals, local organisations such as PNHA, Friends of Currawong, and Pittwater Council. Substantial private donations are currently supporting work at Bungan Beach, Currawong and Bothams Beach.

From time to time the Foundation also seeks grants from State and Federal Government for priority projects. The following funding bodies have contributed to the restoration of Pittwater bushland through government grants.
