ALREADY A MEMBER AND WANT TO RENEW?


Hold up a mirror and ask yourself what you are capable of doing, and what you really care about. Then take the initiative - don’t wait for someone else to ask you to act.

Why Donate?

Our 24 hour Marine Mammal Incident Hotline is funded by the
generosity of ORRCA members as well as the public.

ORRCA receives limited grants but otherwise relies on income from memberships,
donations and workshops to keep the hotline and the organisation functioning.
 

The ORRCA Marine Mammal Incident Hotline provides a 24 hour service that results in the rapid
response to marine mammal emergencies and is funded by the generosity
of ORRCA members as well as the public. You make his happen.

All money gained will go back to the organisation and will be used to assist with the running of the organisation.

A 24 hr / 7 day a week hotline is an expensive, but necessary requirement as is research equipment, 
stationery and printing for educational purposes. 

Please, if you are looking for a worthwhile organisation that really does make a difference in the marine mammal world,
a donation to ORRCA would mean that your generosity will help us to assist a marine mammal in need.

Credit card payments can be made via Paypal here.

Or forwarded by cheque or money order to:

ORRCA Inc.
PO Box 4439
East Gosford  NSW  2250 

Cash donations can also be made to ORRCA at any one of the festivals or meetings that we attend.

Donations over $2.00 are tax deductible.

Donations & Wills

Donating or leaving a bequest to ORRCA is a wonderful way to say thank you to all the hard
working volunteer members that make ORRCA so special. Remember, ORRCA is a not for profit, completely volunteer organisation with no paid staff or office. 

Neither is it funded by the government.

After a number of requests, we are posting suggested wording for ORRCA bequests:

I Bequeath to ORRCA Inc. registered under the Associations Incorporation Act (NSW)  [whatever you want to leave] and the receipt of the Treasurer, Secretary or Public Officer for the time being is an absolute discharge to my Executors.

ON BEHALF OF THE ANIMALS, THANK YOU.
