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.
Expressions of interest are currently being sought from local community representatives for the Coffs Harbour Protection of the Environment Trust Advisory Committee. To apply please email firstname.lastname@example.org a copy of your resume and cover letter outlining how your experience and work history would assist the committee.
