So many ways to make a donation

Your support is very important to us (especially because we do not receive grants from the government). Very few people can deal with the range of invasive problems that the frogs we receive have, but there are many expenses associated with all types of animal rescue and care. Without public support, we wouldn't exist. There are many ways to donate and it doesn't always need to be cash - goods and services are important, too - but the majority of costs still rely on plain old money (rent, phone, electricity, vehicle, etc.). These days, there are a range of options to make donations including automatic transactions such as $5 per payroll or $10 per month through your online banking system. The electronic ones are probably the most secure but cash is still fine too if you are local to us. We have donation boxes at several Cairns shops as well as Leny's, Peppervine and Scotties in the Mission Beach area.

EFT's (bank transfers using online banking):

This is cheap or free within Australia. Overseas people can also use this but please check with your bank about the fees they will charge. Email us to request the correct account number to use but also to provide details for your receipts (to be snail-mailed).

Payroll Deduction

Your employer might allow these which is a nice way to donate a little bit at a time that adds up over a year. Ask your employer if they have a program available and if they do, please contact us for the details.


While direct donations might attract small or no fees, some people feel more comfortable donating through a crowdfund despite the fees. IIf we start a new crowdfund in the future, we will put the link here for you..

Credit cards:

We use the Australian transfer service SecurePay which processes the transactions for us and removes a percentage for their service. Just click on the SecurePay highlighted above to go to our SecurePay donation page. Please don't forget to fill out the email field on that page so that we can provide you with a receipt.

Via cheque/check or money order:

Yes, we still take cheques/checks! This can be used by anyone within Australia or overseas but there IS a loss rate to mail and we have already had issues with memberships and donations disappearing without ever reaching us - so please only use this option if you have no others. If you are making a large donation, it is still worth posting but please use registered/certified with a signature required on this end.

In person deposit:

Our accounts are with Westpac who has branches everywhere in Australia. If you would like to use this option, please email us for the correct account details to use. It is by far the most secure way to donate and allows you to be anywhere near a Westpac branch in Australia and still use cash or a cheque.

Outside Australia:

If you have a credit/debit card, you can use SecurePay to make donations to us.
There is a fee removed from the amount before we receive the money. There will be other services available such as Western Union but please enquire about their fees and what information they might need from us.

For our overseas supporters, we will scan your hard copy receipt and email this to you along with pdf files for froggy materials we have produced which can be printed out on your end (such as posters). We prefer to send hard copy goodies but the postage rates and the loss rates of international mail make it too costly to get these items to you.

Some additional information:

If you are a business wishing to take up a sponsorship, this will still be tax deductable to you as an advertising expense.

Any and all help is appreciated. Even a deduction of $5 per payroll adds up over the year.

If you have any questions, just let us know, and thanks for your concern but more importantly your action for our dwindling frog populations.
