About the ABC Giving Tree

The ABC Giving Tree began in 1988 when then Breakfast presenter Ric Patterson suggested that listeners to ABC Radio Hobart might give a small toy donation to sit under the giant Christmas tree in the foyer. Over more than 30 years it has grown to become Tasmania's largest Christmas charity, distributing donations to 11 partner charities working right across the state of Tasmania.

The ABC Giving Tree is a registered charity with the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC), run by the ABC in Tasmania and governed by a Trust. The Constitution of the ABC Giving Tree states that the sole purpose shall be to facilitate the collection of toys, food, gifts and cash relief of the needy in Tasmania. The ABC Giving Tree is endorsed as a Deductable Gift Recipient (DRG); donations over $2 are tax deductable.
