Charity on Ibiza

Information on the work of charity associations and how you might be able to help and support them in their work.

Ibiza is much more than a party island – it's an island full of people who care. They care about the unique environment and biodiversity, the aged, the infirm, children and animals and they do this by supporting local charities set up by local people.

Although Ibiza's residents support local charities through fundraising and donations, further help is always welcome and is often needed for these remarkable caring concerns to continue.

The volunteers and organisers work tirelessly, on a daily basis, to help ease pain and suffering, asking only that that can make a difference to those in their care.

To get more insight into the work they do please take a look at their websites, through the links below.

Should you feel the urge to help them to help others your donations will be gratefully received.



Working to preserve Ibiza and Formentera’s land and sea, the organisation’s vision is for the islands to be a model of sustainability, where the preservation of the islands’ exceptional natural beauty and resources contribute to local well-being and prosperity. This is achieved by finding solutions to Ibiza and Formentera’s challenges so the environment and community and thrive together.


Plastic Free Ibiza

The organisation’s mission is to join forces with citizens, administrations, international associations, and companies so that the islands of Ibiza and Formentera are free of single-use plastics, by promoting alternatives to plastic and a circular and regenerative economy.

This aim will be achieved through sustainable practices both in companies and at home, promoting new models of local and bulk consumption, as well as encouraging optimal waste management, through constant work with local administrations.

Save The Bay of San Antonio is an initiative born in 2019 with the intention of evaluating the threats that endanger The Bay, stopping its deterioration and promoting the progressive recovery of its environmental quality, all around the coastline, beautiful beaches and the islets - both in the water and on the land.

This important stretch of coast is home to almost 30,000 residents and receives many 10’s of thousands of visitors each summer, all of whom enjoy the wonderful environment.

Fundació Deixalles

This foundation gives people in vulnerable situations a work opportunity by teaching them how to repair and refurbish all kinds of second-hand items. The foundation receives donations of second-hand furniture pieces, household ware, clothes, shoes, books and toys. The team of workers then classify the goods so that they can be sold in the shop. 

The shop is located outside Ibiza Town and, in addition to the above, it also sells fair-trade food items. It's a great place to find a bargain and to donate your things to after a good clearout. If you want to donate a bulky item, you can request their pick-up service.


Animal Welfare

Care 4 Cats

This is a Spanish-registered charity dedicated to Ibiza. Care4Cats was established in 2000 after a British woman (Angela Collins) visited Ibiza and encountered a dying feral (wild) cat. When she looked for someone to help the feral cat, she found no facilities existed on the island and formed Care4Cats.

Care4Cats relies solely on donations and ensures 'every cent is spent on cats'. The charity operates a TNR programme (trap, neuter & return) - recognised as a humane means of helping to control the increasing number of feral cats.



Giving their own time, money and love to heal and rehome unwanted dogs DUO Ibiza work in conjunction with DUO – a German organisation which sends (when it can) animals to new homes in Germany.


Can Hog

Can Hog is Ibiza’s only licenced wildlife sanctuary for this endangered, indigenous species. They rescue hundreds of hedgehogs a year, and all are returned to their natural habitat after they recover. Their work is made possible by kind donations from those who bring in hedgehogs for treatment or care to donate via their website.
