To support Kings Park and Botanic Garden and / or Bold Park, you are invited to consider making a donation when you next visit or through the post, or consider making a bequest in your will.

Untied financial gifts, donations and bequests are particularly welcomed and all untied funds received will be allocated to a suitable current or future project on the designated lands such as maintaining the high standards of horticultural and conservation practice, scientific research, visitor facilities and maintaining significant cultural and memorial sites.


A bequest in your will is an enduring way to benefit Kings Park and Botanic Garden or Bold Park and to leave a permanent legacy to Western Australia. Through your will, you can guarantee that your support will go towards the causes that matter to most to you. More information is available through the Friends of Kings Park and in the BGPA Bequests Policy.


A personal donation can be a meaningful way for you or your family to mark an important occasion.

Friends of Kings Park Fund

Over the years, through the Friends of Kings Park's partnership with Lotterywest, the Friends has helped to deliver world-class projects such as the Water Garden, the Lotterywest Federation Walkway, the Lotterywest Family Area and the Rio Tinto Naturescape Kings Park.

The Friends of Kings Park Fund has been set up to increase the ability of the Friends to engage more broadly with the community for the support of the natural environment of Kings Park and WA’s biodiversity. This will be achieved by building an investment fund for the strategic application of monies principally from earnings to meet the Fund’s objectives. Donations are tax deductible.

The Friends aim to raise a million dollars over the next five years and be in a position to invest annually with confidence up to $50,000 per annum in research and conservation projects. Your gift to the Friends of Kings Park Fund will help them achieve their goal.

By donating to the Friends of Kings Park Fund you will be helping to preserve, protect and enhance this Western Australian treasure and the most popular park in the nation.

Please contact them directly or simply send a cheque (along with your contact details) and they will send you a receipt.
