Support our work

Since ClimateWorks’ establishment in 2009 through a partnership between The Myer Foundation and Monash University, philanthropic support has been key to achieving our mission of catalysing Australia’s transition to a prosperous, net zero emissions future. It has allowed us to remain truly independent, evidence-based and non-partisan.

Generous philanthropic support provides the solid foundation needed to ensure ClimateWorks can continue to focus on the agenda-setting research which is already contributing to significant cross-sectoral impact. Our independence enables us to remain policy agnostic, and uncover practical, evidence-based solutions. It also affords us the time and effort needed to deliver an end-to-end approach, ensuring our work is not only well-understood by key decision-makers in business and government, it also addresses any barriers to implementation.

Our ongoing partnership with philanthropy provides a powerful example of how, together, philanthropy and ClimateWorks can address a key, complex, interdependent, and global challenge such as climate change.

Your support will be doubled

ClimateWorks is excited to announce an offer from a generous philanthropic partner, which means your support can now be doubled.

In addition to a recent donation of AUD $2.5 million, this partner has also offered to match every additional philanthropic dollar gifted to ClimateWorks Australia, up to an additional AUD $2.5 million. This represents a significant opportunity for funders to further your impact in contributing to ClimateWorks’ success.

To discuss this matching donation or ClimateWorks programs more generally, please contact Simone Rosel, Development Manager, on 03 9903 8037 or via email at simone.rosel@climateworksaustralia.org
