Kate Donnelly 

Kate leads our work with regional communities to improve access to funding and investment that supports a fair and fast transformation to a climate resilient and inclusive economy. Kate previously worked with institutional investors at the Investor Group on Climate Change, where she led investor masterclasses, research and policy engagement towards a just transition, as well as corporate engagement with large ASX-listed energy companies on their decarbonisation strategies.  

Kate draws on diverse community development and advocacy experience from her time working on climate adaptation projects in Fiji, international climate law in Vanuatu, and with feminist organisations working to improve outcomes for women, girls and gender diverse people across the South Pacific. She has a Master of Climate Change from the Australian National University. 

We work with communities, governments and industry to build regional economies that are climate safe, regenerative and socially just.

We rely on contributions from generous foundations and individuals to do what we do. If you like to contribute to a fair and resilient Australia, support our work today.

We are a registered charity with the ACNC and accept tax deductible donations through the Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal.
