Everybody needs a Friend

Gecko and the Gold Coast environment are looking for Friends just like you. Our Friends donations help with various projects and campaigns throughout the year with the goal of protecting, advocating and educating in the Gold Coast community. Gecko Friends donate a recurring monthly gift starting from the equivalent of less than one coffee per week, so it’s easy for everyone to become a Friend.

Gecko currently offers two levels of Friends. Green or Emerald Friend with both receiving automatic Free Gecko Membership

Both levels of Friends receive the following benefits:

  • Free Gecko Membership
  • A tree planted within the Gold Coast in your name along with a personalised message.
  • Personal invitation to plant your tree
  • Your name on the Gecko House Tree
  • Gecko Welcome Pack

  • A Certificate of Appreciation
  • The ‘Out and About’ weekly email

As Emerald Friends are providing a larger recurring gift they receive these additional benefits:
