Feral Cat Matching Challenge increased to $1.5 million

Breaking news: Inspired by your overwhelming response to the Feral Cat Matching Challenge, the JAAM Foundation (Andrew and Jane Clifford and family) has taken the extraordinary step of raising the matching amount from $1 million to $1.5 million.

This means all eligible donations to AWC before 30 June in support of our feral cat strategy will be matched, up to a total of $1.5 million. Your eligible tax deductible donation will be doubled.

As at the date of this email, AWC has raised almost $1.1 million. We have nine days to raise another $400,000. Please help us meet this target and protect Australia's endangered wildlife from feral cats. You can make a tax deductible donation here.

Feral cats kill millions of native animals every night. AWC is leading the way in reducing the impact of feral cats on Australia's wildlife by:

  1. Establishing a national network of massive feral cat-free areas.

  2. Implementing best practice feral cat control (indigenous tracking and hunting, trapping etc.).

  3. Undertaking world-class science including working with CSIRO and other partners to design a gene drive technology solution that will remove feral cats from the landscape (e.g., by causing all cats to have male only kittens).

Please help save Australia's wildlife from feral cats. Donations to AWC in support of our Feral Cat Strategy before 30 June will be matched as follows:

  • If you are a new AWC donor: your donation of $250 or more will be matched.

  • If you are an existing AWC donor: all additional donations of $500 or more will be matched (i.e., donations that are in addition to your usual level of giving).

  • You can donate online or call 08 9380 9633.
