Support a faith movement which offers hope
Congratulations to all our supporters who are making regular donations! We have made it to our goal of 35 new monthly donors!
Everyone, help us get into bonus territory, and here's why we still need you .....
The stability of our climate is in peril
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) reported in October, 2018 that we must reduce carbon emissions by 40% in the next 12 years to have a 50% chance of avoiding ‘catastrophe’.
Limiting warming to 1.5oC will require the very rapid decarbonisation of the global economy. For Australia, this means no new coal or gas mining, a shift to 100% renewable energy as soon as possible, and reaching net zero emissions well before mid-century. Every delay will cost lives and livelihoods, especially for those already in poverty.
Your support makes ARRCC more effective
ARRCC offers people of faith the chance to do more than talk together and pray about the kind of world we want to see, although these are valuable too. We offer opportunities to respond actively and effectively as people of faith on the climate challenge. People are inspired when they see what we do, even when they are not themselves affiliated with a religious tradition.
We often receive feedback that ARRCC's work gives hope to people. Here’s a recent email from someone who described herself as “agnostic”:
“To know your group exists, and to meet some of the people involved, means a lot to me. This is from the perspective of someone who is tired of seeing excuses for climate denialism and may need to be reminded that religion and climate denialism do not go hand-in-hand. Your work is so important in this regard. But it also means a lot to me from a personal perspective of someone who is looking for hope and faith in a very confronting world.”
ARRCC supporters can feel good about this too.
Every time you give it helps us reach more people and more effectively. That’s why we’re now looking for more people willing to give monthly. You can arrange it via this page, or to donate via PayPal click here. Or if you prefer, you can organise for direct transfers of your chosen amount into the ARRCC Bank Australia account.

Regular support allows ARRCC to grow
Regular donations make it possible to plan strategically so we can be more fruitful, and they allow us to employ our skilled, hard-working community organiser, Tejopala Rawls.
The number of active ARRCC groups is also growing significantly. Tejopala is helping local groups to organise and urge our governments to fund a clean economic recovery from COVID that is good for people and good for the earth. He’s also organising people in faith communities to divest from fossil fuels and to keep the pressure on companies not to work with Adani.
Your monthly support allows us to plan
Monthly donations give us the financial certainty needed to to plan beyond the next six months and to offer Tejopala more secure employment. Our aim is to find 35 new monthly donors - more if possible.
Every new monthly donation steadies the ship and makes this easier.
Why not consider making a monthly donation of say, $10 or $20 or more? These would help us most. If you really much prefer to make a one-off donation, this is also welcome of course. Please give what you can.
The barometer shows how many people have started a new monthly donation through this campaign. The total amount raised so far through both one-off and monthly donations is $9,057
When people of faith take climate action, it inspires hope. By giving a regular donation, you can help make this possible.
