Give to Surf Life Saving

There are any number of ways that you can help support Surf Life Saving.

Surf Life Saving is a community cause that receives donations from Australians from all walks of life. Without continual support they are unable to perform their services effectively, and every contribution you give saves countless lives. You can donate by phoning 1800 642 92 or click on the ‘Donate Now' button.

Become a Guardian of the Surf and join our regular giving program

Regular monthly donations allow Surf Life Saving to purchase vital rescue equipment and ensure our current and future surf lifesavers are trained and educated ready to perform the critical duty of saving lives when needed.

Becoming a Guardian of the Surf is quick and easy. The amount you choose will be automatically deducted from your credit card or nominated bank account. Spreading your gift over 12 months is a convenient and manageable way for you to make a real difference on Australia’s beaches. For more information please call 1800 642 925 or click on the ‘Donate Now’ button.

Encourage your workplace to undertake a Workplace Giving Program

By donating a small amount from each pay via Workplace Giving, you provide Surf Life Saving with stable, regular funding with little or no administration costs ensuring your donation dollars go as far as possible.

Setting it up is simple and even the smallest ongoing contributions go a long way in helping us maintain and purchase essential equipment, increase beach patrols and assist our volunteer surf lifesavers to do what they do best ­ save lives.

Surf Life Saving Foundation can provide guidance on how to register for Workplace Giving or set up a program that will effectively engage your staff to donate in this way. To register your interest email or call our Workplace Giving Relationship Manager on 1800 642 925.

Incorporate Surf Life Saving in your Will

A bequest to Surf Life Saving is a visionary investment in its future.

Supporters may choose to leave a set amount; a percentage of their estate or the residual (what is left after all their wishes are attended to). We know that leaving a bequest is an important decision that requires a lot of consideration. We have a range of resources available online, or if you would prefer to speak to someone, you can call 1800 642 925 and speak to our Supporter Relationships Manager.

The Surf Life Saving Rescue Fund Trust ("Trust") was established with the aim of being a central body within Surf Life Saving to facilitate the financial investment of funds on behalf of Surf Life Saving bodies.

Funds are held in two forms within the Trust, either in "Perpetuity", where they are held by the Trustee on behalf of a Surf Life Saving body, or "Withdrawable" where funds are placed into the Trust directly by the Surf Life Saving body with either a short, medium or long term investment horizon. If you’d like to learn more about the Trust and how you could contribute, call 1800 642 925.
