Help Us Grow: Support Landcare NSW at the End of Financial Year

As we approach the end of the financial year, we reflect on a year of significant achievements and impactful work at Landcare NSW.

Our efforts have empowered local communities, promoted sustainable agriculture, and enhanced disaster preparedness. However, our work is far from complete. To continue growing and building on our successes, we need your support. 

Highlights from the Past 12 Months 

  • Amplifying Advocacy: Strengthened grassroots voices, driving impactful environmental policy changes into NSW Parliament. 
  • Enhancing Disaster Preparedness: Implemented nature-based solutions to safeguard numerous communities. 
  • Sustaining Agriculture: Promoted biodiversity, soil health, and water security for a resilient future. 
  • Empowering Communities: Supported over 1,500 local Landcare groups with resources and leadership. 
  • Delivering Major Programs: Managed the $58.8 million Landcare Enabling Program from 2023 to 2027, showcasing our trusted partnership with the government. 
  • Hosting Events: Held over 200 events to promote private land conservation and improve disaster preparedness. 

Despite these achievements, the need for more resources is critical. Our analysis of the Australian Government FY24/25 Federal Budget papers reveals that current investment in natural resource management (NRM) is insufficient to meet growing environmental challenges, particularly in biosecurity, disaster preparedness, and biodiversity protection. Forecast budget commitments in these areas are less than 5% of what is required. This underinvestment highlights the urgent need for additional resources to support sustainable land management practices at the grassroots level. 

Over 80% of our income goes directly into Landcare projects on the ground, ensuring that your donations have a tangible impact. Unlike many organisations, we are not burdened by top-heavy administration costs. This means your support directly contributes to the vital work being done in communities across New South Wales. 

Why Your Support Matters 

While the Landcare community in NSW has received record funding, this primarily supports a network of Landcare coordinators across the state. These funds do not directly finance on-ground projects, which are essential for achieving our mission of sustainable natural resource management. Your donations fill this crucial gap, enabling us to: 

  • Launch new projects that protect and rehabilitate our natural environment. 
  • Provide more training and resources to local Landcare groups. 
  • Enhance our advocacy efforts to secure even greater support for environmental and sustainable agriculture initiatives. 

Join Us in Making a Difference 

Your donation at this end-of-financial-year period can make a significant difference. Together, we can continue to grow our impact and ensure that our land, environment, and communities are well cared for. 

Support Landcare NSW today and be a part of a community dedicated to making a lasting, positive impact on our environment. 

Thank you for your continued support and commitment to Landcare NSW.

Together, we can achieve even more in the coming year.
