$1+$1 = $2

The Foundation has a proven track record in doubling the impact of every dollar invested in the Reef.

Every dollar raised by the Foundation has been matched by a further dollar in co-contributions from research institutions.*

In 2016, the Queensland Government announced that it would match every dollar donated for vital Reef water quality projects - multiplying the impact of everyone's contribution.
