Still in its infancy, fundraising has grown over the past two years thanks to our newly acquired supporters. Due to our generous supporters, we have raised over $180,000. We have over 1,900 regular supporters who genuinely care about the Landcare movement and the environment. They are passionate people who want to make a difference and see results.
Over the past year, we have raised funds through our Workplace Giving Program, direct marketing appeals, community fundraising, events, and general donations. In addition, we launched a new bequest and community fundraising program and hosted a successful Trek for Aussie Farmers in Tasmania earlier in March 2017.
Thanks to our supporters, we were able to grant ten habitat restoration grants valued at $10,000 each throughout Australia supporting our Landcare groups working to save Aussie species such as the koala, southern cassowary and coastal emu.
