If you have ever wondered where your donation is going, or felt that you wanted to be more involved with your selected charity, then the Wildlife Guardian Fund is for you!
You are invited to join the Wildlife Guardian Fund and be part of a grass-roots movement to pool our financial, professional and personal resources for greater leverage, enabling a game-changing impact! Too often when we make a donation to a charity, we don’t know where or how it will be spent and the only follow up is to seek more funding. WGF is different. Members of the group pool their individual donations and collectively decide by e-voting as to which projects to support. Donations are tax deductible and 100 per cent of the donation is allocated to the projects chosen to support – there are no administration fees as we are volunteers.
You can also donate your time or skills to WGF, or the projects, to increase our impact. Depending on the projects supported, there may be an opportunity for members to visit the project and have an amazing jungle adventure (travel would be at your own expense).
“Individually, we are one drop. Together, we are an ocean.”
Membership is open to anyone who financially contributes and is inspired by giving in a more meaningful way. One hundred per cent of your donation will go directly to the supported projects – there are no administrative fees – and your donation is tax deductible. Collective giving will turn your donation into a game-changing contribution to make a significant difference.
“Although I only gave AUD$1000, when we made the grant of AUD$100,000 I felt like a major donor. The impact we had as a group was inspiring.”

Annual membership is AUD$200 (tax deductible) due by 1 April to receive a vote for project(s) to be supported in the following financial year.
One-off payments are preferred (to reduce administration for a volunteer), but payments by installments are accepted. Please note the full membership donation of AUD$200 must be paid by 1 April to receive a vote – there are no exceptions and donated amounts are not transferable across financial years.
Members who donate AUD$200 before 1 April each year will be invited to vote to select the project(s) to be supported in the following financial year.
Members can leave at anytime.
TAKE ACTION! Join up and have an impact!
Membership (Business Sponsor)
Why become a business sponsor?
Sponsoring the Wildlife Guardian Fund is a terrific way to show your business’ support for helping disadvantaged communities and for wildlife conservation. Your contribution will help the group to make a greater impact with their donations and to reach a wider network.
Business sponsorship will be used to cover any operating costs for the group. For example, website costs, promotions and networking events. It would also be appreciated if businesses can assist with providing suitable venues and promotion for Wildlife Guardian Fund networking events.
“Be the change that you wish to see in the world”
If you are not able to become a member, or are a member and want to contribute more, please make your tax deductible donation here to help our group have an even greater impact!
Please note that members who make an additional donation do not receive an additional vote.
