Nominate for the 2020 Environmental Philanthropy Award

Nominations close Friday 14 August

We are delighted to be sponsoring this year’s Environmental Philanthropy Award, as part of Philanthropy Australia’s 2020 Philanthropy Awards. 

The award recognises both outstanding environmental funding and the outstanding achievements delivered by projects or organisations as a result.  It is an opportunity to highlight the depth, breadth and huge impact of environmental funding to a broader philanthropic audience and to both showcase and celebrate exceptional environmental work. Now more than ever, following the Black Summer of bushfires, the ongoing COVID-19 crisis and the opportunity to redirect our economy on a low carbon path, is the time to elevate the role of environmental philanthropy and to inspire others to give. 

The Environmental Philanthropy Award is for current achievements from funding projects or organisations that specifically support the environment, or – where a project or organisation’s main focus is in another issue area – there is a significant co-benefit to the environment.

We strongly urge you to nominate your favourite project and to encourage other funders and environmental organisations to nominate as well.

Nominations are welcome from funders, environmental NGOs and other organisations involved in delivering great environmental work. You do not need to be a member of the AEGN or Philanthropy Australia to nominate a project.  

Contact Ione on ione@aegn.org.au or 03 9663 7844 if you have any questions about nominating a project.
