The Foundation has established a Noosa Biosphere Reserve Trust to be used by the Foundation to pursue a long term fund-raising strategy.

Under a three-year funding agreement, the Noosa Council has allocated funds to the Foundation from its Environmental Levy.

We have identified opportunities to work with and provide some “Seed Funding” to certain multi–year projects that meet Trust obligations.

The Noosa Council also supports the Foundation to meet a minimal operational budget.

The Foundation has been awarded Direct Gift Recipient (DGR) status from the Federal Government.
