The Foundation provides an easy, flexible and ethical mechanism to donate and all amounts, however small, are gratefully received. Donations are never spent. They are pooled and carefully invested, generating income which provides grants to Buderim-based community organisations in the 4556 postcode area.
The preferred payment methods are Direct Debit, Cheque or by automatic monthly instalments from your bank account. We encourage donors to consider direct debit as this ensures 100% of the donation goes to the Foundation and avoids the necessity of credit card fees being deducted from your donation.
To Give by Direct Debit
When donating to the Buderim Foundation, you can allocate for your donation to go into one of two accounts. One is for non-tax-deductible donations and other is for tax-deductible donations.
1. Buderim Foundation Ltd Open Trust
This account is for non-tax-deductible donations.
BSB: 124 081 Account no: 2018 4134
This account is exactly what it says it is, open. Ideally, we’d prefer more donations were made into this account because it allows us the freedom to give grants to many and varied community organisations across in the 4556 area.
2. Buderim Foundation Ltd Public Trust
This account is for tax-deductible donations.
BSB: 124 081 Account no: 2009 9125
As the Foundation is registered under the Commonwealth Corporations Act 2001, donations can be tax-deductible but income from the tax-deductible fund is limited to distributing grants to not-for-profit organisations that have deductible gift recipient (DGR) status.
To donate by direct debit, you can make a bank transfer directly to the Buderim Foundation.

Give on line
Go to the Buderim Foundation page on the Give Now website
Click on either ‘Give a donation’ for a one off donation or on the ‘Give a monthly donation’ and set the start and finish dates. You will also need to set up a My Giving account. Merchant credit card fees are charged at a reduced rate (currently 0.99% for Visa and MasterCard and 1.43% for Amex).
And it’s good to remember that philanthropy is more than the act of giving money. It can also include the giving of time, specialised talent and positive support. We’d love you to consider becoming a Foundation Ambassador and we’d welcome you at the Foundation’s fund raising events.
