“You’re like the bush Coastguard. You hope never need them -but when you’re sinking your over the moon that they exist!” - Donor Aug, 2019

Payroll Giving

You can donate to LandSAR directly from your pay if your employer supports this scheme and files their deductions electronically with the Inland Revenue (IRD). With payroll giving you get an immediate tax rebate for one-third of your donation. For example, if you donate $15 to LandSAR through payroll giving, your take-home pay will reduce by only $10.  You can find out more about it on the IRD website.

Donations over $5 (other than payroll giving above) are tax-deductible and we are happy to send you a receipt on request. We are a voluntary organisation registered as a charity under the Charities Act 2005; number CC 11286
