Corporate Programs

The Parks and Wildlife Service welcomes opportunities to work cooperatively with business and corporations. The following are some examples of the opportunities available.

Shared-Benefit Projects

Many commercial enterprises either operate within the boundaries of reserved land or are strongly reliant on the nearby presence of high quality reserved land that is well managed and serviced.

Many of the management activities undertaken by the Parks and Wildlife Service enhances the quality of experience for visitors to Reserves and benefit the reputation and viability of commercial enterprises.

Commercial operators are encouraged to identify projects that they feel able to contribute to and that will enhance management outcomes for the Reserve.

The Parks and Wildlife Service actively seeks opportunities to work cooperatively with business on Shared-benefit Projects.

Corporate Sponsorship

Parks and Wildlife Service welcomes sponsorship from corporations and business that wish to contribute towards specific Reserve management projects and issues. Sponsorship partnerships can be made directly with the Parks and Wildlife Service or with our partner community organisations such as WILDCARE Inc Each sponsorship offer will be considered on its merits.

Corporate Donors

Parks and Wildlife Service has a strong partnership with the WILDCARE Gift fund, established by WILDCARE Inc to accept tax deductible donations in support of Reserve management.

Parks and Wildlife Service encourages corporations to donate to the WILDCARE Gift Fund.

Parks and Wildlife Service works cooperatively with the WILDCARE Gift Fund to identify worthwhile projects for the Gift Fund to support.

Donations can be made on line at WILDCARE Inc or phone the WILDCARE Inc Co-Chair 0419361876 to discuss your intentions.

Workplace Giving

Under Australian Government laws it is possible for corporations to establish workplace giving schemes that allow employees to make regular fortnightly donations from salary direct to Registered Gift Funds. Through the scheme, employees receive the tax deduction benefit at the time of payment, rather than needing to wait to the end of the financial year to claim a tax refund.

The Parks and Wildlife Service encourages businesses to develop Workplace Giving Schemes to enable employees to make donations from salary.

The Tasmanian State Service has a Workplace Giving Scheme in place that allows State Servants to donate to Approved Charities/Gift Funds.

The list of Approved Charities is available from the Department of Premier and Cabinet.

The Parks and Wildlife Service encourages government employees to donate to organisations dedicated to supporting reserve management in Tasmania.

Corporate Volunteering

Would your employees like to be able to volunteer in support of reserve management? A number of our Volunteer Partner Organisations have programs to support corporate volunteering. Parks and Wildlife encourages you to explore the opportunities with our Partner Volunteer Organisations Register.
