The Great Barrier Reef is one of the seven natural wonders of the world. 

You can help us ensure this global treasure is protected for future generations by enabling and encouraging your people to make regular donations to the Great Barrier Reef Foundation through payroll giving. 

By establishing a workplace giving program, or adding the Foundation to your existing program, you can help us raise the funds needed for scientific research to protect and restore our iconic Reef.

With small, pre-tax donations from their pay, your people can:

  • Help save endangered marine species
  • Contribute to turtle habitat protection
  • Find solutions to major threats facing our Reef like coral bleaching and crown-of-thorns starfish
  • Enable vital research that helps managers protect the Reef

Every dollar counts... and the Reef is counting on us all

Matched giving

Every donation from your employees will now have double the impact with the Queensland Government matching every dollar donated to the Foundation to improve water quality on the Great Barrier Reef.

Many employers also choose to match employee donations or make one-off corporate incentive donations to encourage participation – all of which increases the impact of our efforts to work together to protect the Great Barrier Reef.


  1. Engage your people in your company’s corporate social responsibility commitment
  2. Highlight your contribution to the future of the Great Barrier Reef to your people, customers and community
  3. Offer your people a simple, tax effective way of supporting a cause that’s important to your company
