Since 2014 TRY has been working with the Yackandandah community towards 100% renewables. That’s tens of thousands of unpaid volunteer hours put in for community benefit. As we enter stage 5 of our journey we need funds to plan and run the transformative projects that will get us to the goal, and let communities around Australia know how we do it.

TRY uses all donations to plan and fund community initiatives that work towards the 100% goal and

  • save energy costs
  • improve reliability
  • increase resilience
  • reduce emissions

Be part of the 100% renewable energy journey and donate to support these efforts.

There are two fantastic ways that you can donate to TRY: either a tax deductible donation to the TRY Public Fund, or a project specific donation (not tax deductible) to the TRY General Fund.

Tax deductible donations

TRY is a registered charity and donations of $2 or more to the TRY Public Fund are tax deductible. Donate via bank transfer using the bank details below.

As per the regulatory requirements for tax deductibility, donations must remain publicly anonymous and cannot be directed towards specific projects – as indicated above, we use donations to work towards the 100% renewable energy goal via community initiatives.
