The Coffs Harbour Protection of the Environment Trust was established through Prosper Coffs Harbour Limited (PCH Ltd) to provide a source of funding to promote protection and enhancement of the natural environment within the Coffs Harbour local government area.
The Trust has direct linkages to the ‘MyCoffs’ Community Strategic Plan that was developed by Coffs Harbour City Council. However, as PCH Ltd is a separate legal entity the Trust will provide another mechanism for further research, promotion and support.
The Minister for the Environment has approved the Coffs Harbour Protection of the Environment Trust Fund for entry to the Register of Environmental Organisations (REO). This enables individuals donating to the public fund to receive a tax deductible receipt for their donation.
The purpose of the Trust is to support the environmental initiatives that directly involve the Coffs Harbour community in activities that address one or more of the five areas:
These activities will address local conservation issues and raise awareness about ways the community can reduce their impact on the environment.
The Coffs Harbour Protection of the Environment Trust has an Advisory Committee comprised of community member representatives. Members who are selected onto the committee have considerable professional experience and proven community involvement in either environmental protection, conservation or environmental education.
We are currently seeking expressions of interest to recruit new members onto the Advisory Committee. If you are interested in applying and would like further information, please review the Charter for the Advisory Committee through the following link Charter- Coffs Harbour Protection of the Environment Trust Advisory Commitee.
Applications for the Advisory Committee should be addressed to Melissa Nunn, Prosper Coffs Harbour Fundraising Manager, PO BOX 858, Coffs Harbour NSW 2450 or firstname.lastname@example.org detailing your experience and background.
