Connect with members on issues that are important to you.
Our funder groups are for members only and designed to foster collaboration, knowledge sharing and build a community of practice within the environmental philanthropic community. Most funder groups meet quarterly (except for the climate change funder group – which meets monthly).
All funder group meetings are currently online.
Each group also has a moderated email list. For each funder group, you can choose to join just the meetings or just the email list, or both.
Connect with funders across Australia who share your passion for action on a range of topics. Funder groups provide an opportunity to develop lasting relationships, share your success stories and grow the impact of your funding.

Register of experts
We value the support of environmental issue experts to ensure key our information is based on authoritative and up-to-date information.
Over the years we have built relationships with many environmental experts. Now we can provide better access for our members to experts through the compilation of an issue expert register. This service supports you in making critical decisions in your grantmaking strategy and ensures your philanthropy is consistent with the best available science on issues and solutions.
Who is on the register?
The expert register includes leading experts over a wide range of environmental issues. So far the register includes over 50 experts, covering our core environmental issues. In compiling the expert register, we have looked for experts who are leaders in their field, and how have the communications skills to convey information to people who are not necessarily scientists.
How do I contact an expert?
If you need an expert, contact us and we will link you up with the right expert. You and the expert will discuss your needs and agree on the arrangement the suits both parties.
Growing the list
We are continuing to build the register and would appreciate member support. Let us know when you come into contact with experts who are leaders in their field and excellent communicators. We are particularly interested in growing the number of experts on the following:
- Sustainable agriculture
- Sustainable cities and communities
