Donations to Leeuwin Ocean Adventure make a world of difference

Leeuwin Ocean Adventure Foundation Limited is a registered charity. Contributions through donations and sponsorship have, for over thirty two years, enabled young men and women from across Western Australia to experience the unique, life-changing adventure that a voyage on STS Leeuwin II provides.

From time to time, Leeuwin Ocean Adventure runs special fundraising campaigns – but general donations are welcome at any time.

Captain’s Fund

If you’re keen to directly support youth participation on voyages, your donation to the Captain’s Fund will do just that. From time to time young people approach us to assist with their fundraising effort. If they’ve demonstrated initiative and drive and have managed to raise some of their funds, Leeuwin Ocean Adventure will consider their application for sponsorship using funds raised through donations to the Captain’s Fund.

Leeuwin Fund

If you’re interested in contributing to maintenance of the ship for the purpose for which it was built, sail-training and the development of young men and women, then your donation to the Leeuwin Fund will go towards the annual maintenance and renewal of the vessel. STS Leeuwin is maintained to a high standard to meet compliance obligations and to ensure she is in a condition to do her vitally important works.

Malcolm Hay Voyage Scholarship Fund

STS Leeuwin II founder Dr Malcolm Hay created something remarkable, unique and enduring for Western Australian youth.

Dr Malcolm Hay set out to build a ship that would change young people’s lives – give them the courage to step into the unknown and grasp every opportunity offered to them and the confidence to be who and what they want to be in life.

The Malcolm Hay Scholarship Fund will create opportunities for young people to take up the challenge to be the best that they can be. Your donation to the Malcolm Hay Scholarship Fund will help young men and women from across Western Australia to experience the extraordinary, build skills for life and understand the true meaning of adventure.


STS Leeuwin II is a community asset – her value to the community can be measured by the positive impact we have made on 45,000 young people for almost 40 years.

Be part of something amazing and donate now!

Thank you
