DONATE TO GREEN SHIRTS

We are a grassroots, not for profit, movement of individuals and families across our nation, that hold a collective concern about the increasing divide between food and fibre consumers, and primary producers and associated industries.

If you want positive change within the Australian agricultural sector, then please consider making a financial contribution to the Green Shirts Movement. Your donation will allow us to… 

  • run our organisation
  • pay to advertise important issues and keep you informed
  • help us to run campaigns and get action
  • plus it will enable us to support candidates running for office who believe in the values that the Green Shirts Movement are fighting to uphold and want to preserve and grow Australian agriculture.

If we are to continue to be a voice for rural, regional and reasonable people, then we need funds to continue our fight.

We know many Australians are struggling financially, but nothing will change unless we all pitch in to create public awareness and effect change within all levels of government. 

In anticipation we thank you for your kind donation. No matter how big or small, it will be very much appreciated.

 

DONATE TO A CAMPAIGN

The Green Shirts Movement are running the following campaigns and we would greatly appreciate a contribution to help us promote and help these causes.

Why do we need to exist?

"It's politics that got us into this mess...
it'll be politics that gets us out!"

We need you, as the consumers and producers, to rally behind us to keep the produce on our shelves Clean, Green and Local.

If we don’t produce it, someone else will, and we can assure you, it won’t be to the standard we have set ourselves.

DONATION DISCLAIMER

Green Shirts Movement Australia (GSM) is a not-for-profit organisation campaigning to ensure that the grassroots Australia is represented and governed by good people and good policy.

GSM is not a deductible gift recipient (DGR) organisation or fund that registers to receive tax deductible gifts, nor is it a registered political party under State or Federal legislation. Therefore, contributions are not deductible for income tax purposes.

To help us continue to be the voice for rural, regional and reasonable people we raise money through donations help pay for things like advertising, billboards, print advertisements and representing your voice to governments at all levels.

We are NOT apolitical – we are very political – however we are NOT party aligned. We expect and will support GOOD PEOPLE and GOOD POLICY, no matter from whence we find it. We will not blindly attach ourselves to any political party. We expect parties to put themselves SECOND to the welfare of the people they purport to represent. We are driven by you. As political parties are abandoning the grassroots, we will fill that void. We will give our all to ensure policy is driven from the grassroots up, and not inflicted on us from those that feel they are our betters.

Your donation makes our movement stronger and strengthen your voice.
