Get involved

Since 2002 the Intrepid Foundation has provided travellers with an opportunity to give something back to the many wonderful communities in which we travel. By donating to The Intrepid Foundation you can make a difference in local communities – in health care, education, human rights, child welfare and the protection of wildlife and the environment.

To donate you can select one of the many Community Projects by pressing on the tag above. It is easy to sort though them by travel company, region, country or project type. Then select whether you would like to make a regular monthly donation or a one-off donation.

All money is collected, then matched* by Intrepid Group before being disbursed to the projects annually. Any interest is also shared out to the projects.

Other ways to help include:

Regular donations – make a regular monthly donation to your chosen project. The equivalent of a coffee a week can make a big difference to these small grassroots organisations.

Fundraise – here are our fundraising tips. Or check out some of the great fundraising ideas other travellers have come up with.

You can even organise your own fundraising trip for you and your friends. Intrepid Group has its own specialists in putting together private departures according to your requirements.

Gift Registry – you can have friends make donations on your behalf on your next big day, be it birthday, engagement or wedding.

Global Gifts – when buying a gift for a friend consider giving them the gift that gives twice! Well three times because the gift will be matched dollar for dollar. When you purchase a Global Gift you receive a pdf you can print or email to your friend or loved one. Everyone wins!


*All donations will be matched dollar for dollar up to a total of AUD$400,000 and a maximum of AUD $1,000 total per donor in each financial year, excluding emergency appeals.
