Make a Donation

This is a 100% industry funded campaign. With your help, we can create shared value that all Australian co-operative businesses can benefit from in 2012 and beyond.

The Australian Secretariat has invited all co-operative businesses to contribute to the National Appeal. A voluntary ‘levy’ table has been developed as a guide to the recommended value of contributions.  
Your contribution at the suggested level, or another amount shows that our movement can pull together to achieve a mutual outcome on behalf of all co-ops. Planning and coordination is already underway – please make your donation as soon as you can so that we can continue the effort.
