We are passionate about our Community. We know you are too!  With a variety of flexible ways to give, we make it easy to realise your philanthropic ambitions and support our community well-being, now and for the future.

We invite you to be part of building a better Clutha.


Give now: See the impact of your generosity in the community today, and enjoy the benefit of the donor tax rebate.

Give later: Through your will you can leave a lasting legacy to the community or causes you care about.

Give what you can: Every gift counts, big or small.  It’s about giving in any way you can and inspiring others to do the same.

Give your way: It is up to you whether it is a one-off donation, annual payment, regular direct credit, workplace giving or a bequest in your will.

Give to what you care about: You can direct your giving to a cause or organisation you care about.


Donating to the foundation through your workplace's payroll system is quick and easy.  If just 1% of Clutha's population donated $5 a week, we would grow a fund of over $750k within 10 years - and all for the cost of just 1 cup of coffee a week!


All donations made by income earners are eligible for a rebate of 33%.  Payroll givers receive the rebate as they give and lump sum donors claim the rebate annually.  This increases the benefit to the community as the full amount is added to the fund but the net cost to the donor is reduced by a third.
