Heritage Appeals

To promote the conservation of Queensland's heritage places the National Trust runs public appeals known as Heritage Conservation Appeals. These appeals offer contributors the ability to claim their donations as a tax deduction.

National Trust Heritage Appeals are administered on behalf of third parties to raise funds for restoration and conservation works.

The National Trust of Australia (Queensland) is a community-based organisation dedicated to the conservation of our significant built and natural heritage.

All donations to the Trust are tax-deductible. The Australian Tax Office permits the Trust to extend this tax-deductibility to heritage-related appeals operated by other organisations. These appeals are known as ‘Heritage Appeals’.

Generally, the heritage place should be owned or managed by a community based not-for-profit organisation. The subject of the appeal must be heritage-listed and have a degree of public accessibility. The heritage activity is usually the restoration of the place or object but can be another activity directly related to the conservation of the place.

Major Heritage Appeals were launched in the 1980’s for landmarks such as St Mary’s – Kangaroo Point, City Tabernacle Baptist Church, St Andrews – South Brisbane,  However, many non-religious places and objects have also benefited from Trust Heritage Appeals, such as the United Services Club – Spring Hill and The Moreton Club – New Farm.
