  • Pledge a gift to the Surf Life Saving Rescue Fund
    • The Surf Life Saving Rescue Fund ("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 within the trust 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 in an account that is intended to remain in the Trust in perpetuity with earnings distributed back to Surf Life Saving, 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, visit our website or call 1800 642 925.
