How To Donate

The Redland Foundation relies on the financial support of individuals and corporate donors.
Funds may be donated into one of two different Trusts.

Redland Foundation Public Trust

Donations made to the Redland Foundation Public Trust are tax deductible. They may be maintained in this Fund for specific long-term purposes. The income from this Fund is used to distribute grants to worthwhile community causes. The capital that is invested is done so in perpetuity.

A substantial amount of capital needs to be generated before a useable amount of income is generated.

Once this level has been achieved, the Board will commence the distribution of grants, via other Deductible Gift Recipients, to not-for-profit organizations and to projects that meet specific publicly-advertised criteria, such as disaster relief.

Redland Foundation Open Trust

Funds directed to the Redland Foundation Open Trust may be accessed for the disbursement of capital funds as well as income through grants.

This Trust provides flexibility for donor who can choose to bequeath an amount of money – or an item of value – for a specific purpose.

It is guaranteed that the whole amount of their bequest will be spent for the purpose identified.

If no specific purpose is identified, Funds might be used to help the Redland community in an emergency or disaster situation.

Contributions and/or donations provided by community organizations and funds raised through special events are directed into the Redland Foundation Open Trust.


Through your estate planning, you have the power to invest in the future of Redland City and leave a lasting legacy that will benefit hundreds of individuals and organizations in perpetuity.

To make a bequest, simply nominate the Redland Foundation as a beneficiary in your Will.
You may need to discuss your bequest with a Solicitor.

Bequests may be made anonymously or may be publicly acknowledged. It’s up to you.

Bequests are directed into the Open Trust as tax deductions to not apply and may have a requested use attached.

In general terms, the Foundation prefers that your donation is made to the Redland Foundation Open Trust, without conditions attached, so that funds can be applied as needs arise.


Unrestricted or discretionary gifts to the Redland Foundation may take the form of money, shares, life insurance, property, jewellery, artworks or any thing of value.
