Get active in your community

There are lots of ways to get active in your local area to support our work.
  • The best way is to meet with your MP or write to your local paper to share your position on climate change. Our communications toolkit will prepare you to take these actions.
  • You can also share resources and information about climate smart agriculture and climate literacy to social media groups or newsletters you might be involved with.
  • You can donate to fund a “I’m a farmer for climate action” farm gate sign – or, if you’re a farmer, sign up for one and we’ll send it to you.
  • You can also build links with FCA supporters in your region and across the country. If you’d like some ideas, you can email us at [email protected].
  • Of course, you can also follow us on social mediaFacebook, Twitter and Instagram – and share our posts to help us reach more people.

Giving

There are plenty of ways to contribute to our work and support rural and farming communities on the frontlines of climate change.

Make a one-off gift 

As a small not-for-profit organisation, we rely on our community to power our critical work to support farmers and rural Australians to lead on climate solutions. Every dollar goes directly toward supporting our movement and all donations over $2 are tax deductible.

Make a monthly donation 

Our monthly donors are called Cli-Mates. Cli-Mates choose a monthly amount that works for them and can change that donation at any time via our website or by emailing or calling our team.

All donations from our Cli-Mates go directly toward supporting our movement and ensuring farmers’ voices are loud and clear in front of politicians and the media. Farmers are one of the only groups that can cut through the politics of climate change and making a monthly donation is one of the best ways to support this work.
