Friends of the Alliance

Friends of the Alliance help lead our community organising.

This is different to a donation, which you can also give here. Friends of the Alliance contribute an annual fee to help fund the alliance, and gain access to training, working groups, member correspondence, and other opportunities. The minimum fee for Friends of the Alliance is usually $250 annually, but if you have the means you are welcome to contribute more in a show of solidarity with our purpose.

As a Friend of the Alliance, you will have access to:

  • Join research-action teams working on local issues such as housing affordability, homelessness, and climate action

  • Make representations to decision makers in Alliance delegations

  • Invitations to join Alliance actions and meetings

  • Community Organising Foundations Training

  • National Advanced Community Organising Training

  • Opportunities to help lead training and other actions

Once you have use the form to the left to pay your membership fee in a one-off, or multiple, payment, please see the information in your follow-up email about next steps.

If you are considered a low income earner and the standard $250 membership fee is not possible, please contact us to ask about a means-based rate. We want to find ways for everyone who is keen and has capacity to be involved.

Thank you for your support and for taking action for our communities!

Being a Friend of the Alliance
