Project Clearinghouse

The Project Clearinghouse enables members to share projects they have supported that require additional funding. In 2019/20 we saw 55 projects worth $12.8 million proceed as a result of members contributing funding.

Environmental issues and solutions

We know when philanthropy, high-quality science and powerful changemakers within our community sector work together, we can catalyse lasting positive change.

The Environmental Giving Pledge

In May 2017, we aimed to raise an additional $50 million for the environment in five years. In October 2020, we are proud to announce, our members have helped us exceed this goal to $120 million.
