Surf lifesavers are iconic Australians. You see their reassuring presence on the beach when you go for a swim. You admire their skill and athleticism as they race through the waves. Even if you are not on the beach there are plenty of ways that you can support our red and yellow heroes without even getting your toes wet.

Why Support Surf Life Saving?

Support us and you can help save a life. It’s simple, by supporting our volunteer surf lifesavers you directly ensure that Queensland’s beaches are a safer place to swim.

With over 30 million visitors to Queensland’s beaches every year, Surf Life Saving Queensland is continually striving to make our marine environment as safe as possible.

Surf Life Saving is an integral part of Australia’s heritage. Our dedicated volunteers need to have the right training and equipment to do their job which is to save lives. All monies raised are used to maintain and purchase rescue gear and equipment, enhance training and development programs for our lifesavers, expand community surf safety messages and fund aquatic safety research and development.




Fundraising Events

The beach is a big part of Queensland life and a large number of Queenslanders visit the beach at least once a year. However, we need support throughout the year and to engage the community outside traditional fundraising initiatives, Surf Life Saving Queensland now runs a number of fundraising and beneficiary events throughout the year that are designed to engage with the community and raise much needed funds.

Surf Life Saving Foundation

The Surf Life Saving Foundation is the national fundraising arm of Surf Life Saving in Australia. Established in 1997, the Foundation has grown to support surf lifesaving services in Queensland by garnering community support through the Surf Life Saving Lottery, regular giving programs, and fundraising and beneficiary events.

One of the ways that Surf Life Saving raises much needed funds for our clubs is through the sale of lottery tickets. Each year Surf Life Saving Lotteries operates six prize home lotteries. These lotteries include opportunities to win gold bullion, cars and gift vouchers. We also operate a members and loyalty program, Champions Club, members of which receive double entries into each prize home lottery and automatic entry into our $5,000 weekday prize draw.
