We’re on a mission to inspire a community of environmental heroes, and any money that you raise will help with this. Check out this video to see why you should fundraise for EcoMarines!
This fundraising guide will equip you with ideas for activities and events, and all you need to know to help fundraise for EcoMarines. We are a not-for-profit organisation which means that any money raised or donated goes directly back into our programs to help create a community of environmental heroes.

Ensure that the money raised is donated to EcoMarines
It is important to state that you are raising funds on behalf of EcoMarines e.g. “Proudly raising funds to support the work of Tangalooma EcoMarines Foundation Ltd.”
“Donations over $2 are tax-deductible, however not all funds raised via community fundraising will qualify as a ‘donation’ by law and therefore cannot be issued a tax receipt.
For example, fundraisers that are based on purchases cannot attract a tax-deductible receipt as the event attendee / purchaser is receiving something in return for their purchase (e.g. event tickets, raffle tickets, auction items etc.) even though the money from these items will be donated to Tangalooma EcoMarnies.
Fundraisers who collect cash donations during their fundraising activity regretfully are not authorised to provide a receipt to the donor for tax-deduction purposes. However, if anyone donating money would like a receipt then you are welcome to direct them to our website (www.ecomarines.com/donate). For every donation made on the EcoMarines website, an automatic tax-deductible receipt will be issued.
Fundraisers who collect cash donations as part of a community fundraising activity on behalf of Tangalooma EcoMarines will receive a letter of gratitude and acknowledgement of funds received. However, this will not be in the form of a receipt that the fundraiser can use for tax-deduction purposes.
For any promotions, it is important to state that you are raising funds on behalf of EcoMarines e.g. “Proudly raising funds to support the work of Tangalooma EcoMarines Foundation Ltd.”
We recommend digital promotion where possible to save paper!
It’s important to consider and abide by privacy and media regulations. If you would like to take photos at an event, you could obtain media permission prior OR display a sign saying “photos are being taken”. This is especially important for kids – contact us if you would like our template media release form!
Give yourself a big pat on the back, and let us know how you went! We’d love to know how many people attended/donated
Ensure that any cash is collected and stored securely
