Coastwatchers Environment Fund

About the Fund

The ‘Coastwatchers Environment Fund’ is a public fund separate from the Association’s general administration. The Fund obtains its funds from public donations, and was established to support the Association’s environmental objectives and purposes. The Fund has its own bank account, and an independent Management Committee which distributes the monies.

The Coastwatchers Environment Fund has been Registered on the Australian Government’s “Register of Environment Organisations” since 20 January 2003, which means that donations over $2 to the fund are tax deductible. The Fund relies on the goodwill and generosity of members and the community to continue its work.
