Natural Capital Fund

The Natural Capital Fund was established as an Environmental Trust Fund by Terrain NRM in 2006.

It is a public fund that has been set up to support the environmental objectives of Terrain NRM. It was established to receive gifts of money from members of the public and has deductible gift recipient status. As such, any donations made to the Natural Capital Fund are tax deductible to the donor.

All donations to the Natural Capital Fund are maintained in a separate bank account to Terrain NRM and shown separately in the financial reports. Each year, Terrain NRM completes and lodges a statistical return about the Natural Capital Fund to the Register of Environmental Organisations (due by the end of October).

A management committee consisting of Bart Dryden, Ken Atkinson and Ryan Donnelly administer the fund. It is expected that they will meet at least once a year to decide how to utilise the funds. No fees are paid to these committee members for any meetings.

If the Natural Capital Fund ceases to exist, any remaining money in the fund's account must be transferred to another Environmental Trust Fund.

Further information about the Natural Capital Fund can be found in Terrain NRM’s constitution at Clause 27.

If you would like to donate to the Natural Capital Fund, please contact Terrain NRM via email at and our administration team will contact you with further information.
