Trust For Nature

Revolving Fund

Trust for Nature's Revolving Fund is protecting nature on private land throughout Victoria, forever

Trust for Nature uses the Revolving Fund to purchase unique properties in the market with conservation value, protect them with a covenant, and then sell them on to new owners. All proceeds from property sales are put directly back into the Fund, forever recycled by Trust for Nature to purchase and protect more and more properties.

In this way, the Revolving Fund turns the regular property cycle into the conservation of Victoria’s natural heritage.

Before purchase, each Revolving Fund property is first assessed by Trust for Nature conservation experts in order to get the green tick of approval.

If you’re lucky enough to secure one of these properties, you’ll receive ongoing advice and support from Trust for Nature through the Stewardship program. You’ll also be able to apply for a range of grants and financial incentives.

First established in 1989, the Revolving Fund has already protected more than 6,668 hectares of Victoria. To date, more than 52 Revolving Fund properties have been on-sold to new owners.

The Revolving Fund has an outstanding environmental record, with habitat for many threatened species protected – you can find out more here.

You can become part of this success by buying, selling or donating your property to the Revolving Fund. Whether you’re upsizing, downsizing, tree-changing or looking for a weekend retreat, you can secure your legacy and help Trust for Nature conserve biodiversity on private land for generations to come.

Trust for Nature is also grateful to those who generously contribute to the Revolving Fund through monetary donations. All contributions of $2 and over are tax deductible.

However you choose to get involved, you can be confident that Trust for Nature will continue to recycle all proceeds from the Revolving Fund to protect more and more of Victoria’s unique natural heritage, forever.
