Busselton Jetty donations, free tickets and requests
Each year the Busselton Jetty receives thousands of requests for donations, free tickets and retail products for raffles etc. Busselton Jetty Inc (BJI) is passionate about supporting the community and is proud to be helping make a difference in the area of marine science education and the environment. However we are not for profit as well and can only provide donations and/or free tickets to a limited number of organisations per year.
BJI is pleased to consider donations to non-profit or education organisations based in the South West of Western Australia and we invite you to refer to the following information on our donation program:
- Our donations are made to legitimate, non-profit, and/or charitable agencies and educational organisations.
- Requests must be received at least 90 days prior to the event date to be considered.
- We are pleased to consider donations to non-profit organisations for fundraising purposes. Contributions such as charity-based raffles and silent auctions are eligible for donations.
Sponsorships or donations for individuals or teams will not be considered.
- Donations will be mailed directly to the not-for-profit or education organisation.
- Due to the amount of charitable requests we receive, our resources must be shared. Your request will be assessed for its suitability, and please note we can only accept a maximum of one request per organisation within a calendar year.
- If your organisation resides outside the South West of Western Australia, please provide a legitimate reason as to how the Busselton Jetty will mutually benefit from the donation it provides.
