Supporting Our Surf Lifesavers
05 July 2022
Every year, the Surf Life Saving Foundation’s Mission Zero Tax Appeal encourages Australians right across the country to dig deep and donate to provide additional support to our surf lifesavers, who are helping to keep our beaches safe.
As Surf Life Saving Australia’s (SLSA) Major National Partner and Community Partner, Isuzu UTE Australia (IUA) took it a step further across the month of June and matched donations made towards the Surf Life Saving Foundation's Mission Zero Tax Appeal—effectively doubling donations to double the impact of volunteer surf lifesavers.
This means that for every $1 donated to the Tax Appeal between June 1st and June 30th, IUA matched it, dollar-for-dollar, up to $82,400—providing additional funds to maintain lifesaving rescue equipment, enhance training programs, expand safety campaigns, and continue to provide support services for our surf lifesavers and beach-goers.
Despite surf lifesavers volunteering over 1.3 million volunteer hours in the past 12 months, patrolling beaches and maintaining training and essential lifesaving equipment all comes at a cost, which is why surf lifesavers rely on generous donations from the public to continue the work they do on our beaches and beyond the coastline.
Get involved and help our surf lifesavers by donating today.
