You Can Make a Difference


Your support is important to our work at David Boykett Tall Ships Voyaging Fund. There are many ways you can contribute towards our causes, and every little bit that you commit goes a long way in helping us fulfill our mission. Learn more about how you can get involved and take advantage of the opportunity to do some good.


Your support of this fund is vital to its ongoing success. The cost of placing a Voyager onboard is typically in the order of $1,500 to $2,500 including travel to and from the applicable Ports.

Our goal is to raise sufficient funds through the Australian Communities Foundation to enable a capital fund to be preserved while generating enough revenue to enable up to 10 people per year to experience a tall ship voyage.

All individual donations are fully tax deductible through this Foundation.

Online donations can be made directly to the Fund via the attached link. Your official receipt will be issued automatically with all applicable details for claiming your tax deduction.

Donations can alternatively be made to the fund by sending your cheque and return mailing address, as follows:
