By becoming a regular giver, your donations make a significant investment in helping Great Barrier Reef Foundation fulfill its mission and ensure the Reef is here for future generations. Your support is helping us find solutions to repair the tropical reefs and coral coasts around the world for the benefit of the world community. 


Thanks to the generous support of people like you, Great Barrier Reef Foundation is able to maintain the financial and operational independence that allows us to provide science solutions for the most current Reef management practices year round. Foundation-funded science and research is acknowledged as leading the global science community in cutting edge innovation and implementation, and is proven to be invaluable in times of extreme challenges, not only to Great Barrier Reef but applicable to reefs bordering coastlines around the world.

On behalf of the Great Barrier Reef Foundation volunteers, staff, and, most importantly, the future generations of cultures around the world whom we serve, we would like to extend our deepest gratitude to you for your belief in our environmental work and your ongoing support in making it a reality.


We are committed to providing high standards of accountability to our donors. Throughout the year, we will provide information to donors about Great Barrier Reef Foundation projects via our regular updates.
