In 2018, Public Fund donations are being used to assist with urgent administrative expenditure which keeps the organisation going – office costs, travel where it cannot be externally supported, production of Australasian Plant Conservation, and office staff salaries. Grant funding for admin purposes have significantly diminished in recent years.
The end of financial year is the perfect time to donate to the causes you care about!
From 2015 to 2017, Public Fund donations contributed to the development and ongoing maintenance of this new and improved website. A big thank you to everyone who donated to this, especially Natural Area Consulting Management Services, as this helped cover the costs of establishing and designing the website, as well as producing the on-line payment forms for memberships, publications and donations.
Thanks to a confidential $5,000 donation in 2017, we are now working on further upgrading the website onto a more user friendly platform which will incorporate an on-line membership database, event registration features and members only log-in page. The website will continually be updated and expanded to increase the community's knowledge, awareness and appreciation of native plants, especially threatened plant species and endangered ecological communities from around Australia, with the provision of innovative educational resources and information, and expansion of the kids page. The website will also be further developed to provide a comprehensive resource for all those working in plant conservation - for example, the establishment of a Resource Bibliography for Australian Plant Identification will soon be available online for everyone to use to keep track of all the available Australian floras and plant identification publications.
