Your generous one-time gift will help fund our campaign against single-use plastics.
Help us stop plastic from entering our oceans
There is no such thing as "away". When you throw something away it must go somewhere. Problem plastics invade the bodies of helpless marine life, like turtles who can't tell the difference between a jellyfish and a plastic bag. Your regular gift can help our campaigns against single use plastics by:
Educating people about the alternatives to single-use plastics.
Increasing the pressure on companies to switch from single-use plastics to reusable or compostable packaging.
Inspiring thousands of others through media campaigns to join the fight to help save our oceans.
It only takes 3 minutes to donate. Your ongoing support is the most effective way to contribute by helping us with long term campaign goals.
Could help expose the shocking amount of plastic pollution that ends up in our oceans.
Could help reduce the amount of plastics ending up in our oceans, saving the lives of countless sea creatures.
Could help build critical pressure on governments to ban single-use plastics.
Is a regular donation tax deductible?
Yes! Any donations including ongoing donations made before the end of the financial year are tax deductible.. Contributions that you make beyond the end of this financial year can be claimed as tax deductible donations when you lodge your tax return the following year.
When will my donation be deducted?
When you pledge to make a ongoing contribution, your first donation will be deducted the same day that you make your initial pledge, then every following four weeks from this date. If you would like to choose a different starting date, please contact us at 1800 815 151 during office hours (Mon-Fri, 9am-5pm EST) and we can arrange that for you.
Will I receive a receipt?
Yes, a receive will be sent to you after pledging to become a regular giver. Make sure to keep it in a safe location as you will need it to claim your tax deductible donations when lodging your tax return.
Can I choose which appeal gets my regular donation?
Unless otherwise stated, all of the funds raised go into the Greenpeace Trust Fund, which is an untied or unrestricted general fund. This means that Greenpeace can spend the funds where there is the most pressing need, for example, to respond to a recent environmental crisis.
Giving an unrestricted gift is the best way that you can support Greenpeace, as it ensures that we can spend the funds where they are needed most.
"Unrestricted" funds are donations that are available for Greenpeace to use for any purpose. Unrestricted funds will go towards our campaigns and any operating expenses.
In some circumstances, we can accept funds tied to a specific campaign: please contact our Supporter Relationships team on 1800 815 151.
Where donations are earmarked or tied to a specific objective, we fully endeavour to honour the donor's request. If we invite the general public to donate to a specific cause, a recognised accounting method is used to track and control donations. We report back on amounts raised, how it was spent, and the net proportion used for the purpose or cause.
We seek to actively raise no more than the full budget of activities we specify in earmarked funding requests; and will develop scenarios for dealing with shortfall or excess on specific earmarked fundraising projects. We make every effort to provide full and fair disclosure in managing donor designated gifts.
Why is it better to become a Regular Giver?
Regular donations allow us to provide a stable and sustainable campaign force for the planet. By signing up to become a regular giver, no matter the size of your regular donation, you will make a vital difference to our ability to respond quickly to the planet’s greatest threats. Our regular donors are proud to know that they have had a hand in powering our effective and strategic campaigns through from conception to victory.
We do not take any donations from corporations, political parties or governments. We encourage donors to make a regular donation, giving Greenpeace the security and stability to make long-term commitments to our campaigns, enabling us to plan ahead, respond quickly, while keeping us flexible and independent.
