Why donate to the Pittwater Environmental Foundation?
Population pressure continues to be major threat to Australia’s unique natural landscapes and environments.
While areas such as Pittwater will never attract sufficient government funding to soften the impacts of urbanization on our natural heritage, donations from local communities and individuals committed to preserving the landscape for future generations can make all the difference.
The Pittwater Environmental Foundation is a registered Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) and can receive income tax deductible gifts and donations.
Donations for which a tax deduction may be claimed include cash, property purchases in the last 12 months and trading stock.
Property is defined to include land, artwork, shares and other rights and interests which have value. Conditional donations will be subject to Pittwater Environmental Foundation approval.
- A bequest is the term given to a gift in a will. Bequests are exempt from capital gains tax.
- An ‘In memorium’ donation, gift or bequest can also be made in memory of a loved one.
- 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.
- We welcome donations, gifts and bequests from private donors
