Amplify your impact and help people from all walks of life to safeguard our climate and precious water sources, defend our wildest places, and protect our natural and built environment.

The Environmental Defenders Office provides expert legal advice to communities and runs groundbreaking cases to defend the people, places, plants and animals we love.

With the support of people like you, we design better laws to solve our most pressing problems, and empower people to use the law to protect our environment and everything that depends on it for survival.

Right now, we have an amazing opportunity: a generous donor dedicated to environmental justice has offered to match all gifts to our Environmental Defence Fund – up to $250,000 – so that we can build our legal team to pursue even more transformative legal solutions designed to protect all of us now, and into the future.

That means that any tax-deductible donation you make today will be doubled, and monthly gifts matched til December 2020!

But there’s a catch – to take advantage of this offer, we have to raise the funds.

We need you to help us raise the full $250,000, so it can be turned into half a million dollars to drive the essential legal fight to protect the plants, animals, places and people we love.

Make your one-off donation using the form on this page, or donate by PayPal here.

You can also become a Friend of the EDO with a monthly gift, raise money for our work in your community or workplace,  take part in an event, invest in one of our programs with a major gift, or leave a lasting legacy with a gift in your will.

If you are giving to commemorate a special person, place or community, please email us and let us know, so we can properly acknowledge your gift.

Raise Funds for EDO

From bush-dancers, runners and artists, to eco-conscious retailers or local community groups, people across Australia are raising funds for our work.

EDO recognises the traditional owners and custodians of the land, seas and rivers of Australia. We pay our respects to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander elders past and present, and aspire to learn from traditional knowledge and customs so that, together, we can protect our environment and cultural heritage through law.
