Leaving a gift to the Greens is one of the most meaningful contributions a person can make to the future of our party – and the country itself.
Thank you to our donors and their families for their foresightedness, generosity and contribution towards creating a future for all us.
Among many achievements over her remarkable life, one of Louise’s most enduring legacies is the creation of the first Global Greens Charter in 2001. Before that, she became the first convenor of the Tasmanian Greens in 1992, ran for the Senate in 1998, and was one of the first convenors of the Australian Greens after its formation in 1992.
Even after being diagnosed with cancer in 2012, Louise remained active in the party until her passing in 2015. Louise left substantial gifts in her will to both the Australian Greens and the Tasmanian Greens, in addition to several other charitable organisations.
Louise’s practical foresight is enabling The Greens to continue to develop our work and improve our impact towards the vision she shared with us – a final act of kindness that will benefit future generations.
Pauline was a nurse and a trained midwife, as well as a wife to Gösta and the mother of three daughters. She was committed to do the best for our world and for the future of her seven grandchildren.
The environment was very important to Pauline, who was an active member of Cooleman Ridge Park Care group and posthumously received an award for her volunteering. She was also a supporter of Plan International for many years, committed to creating better opportunities for children in developing countries.
Pauline was a long-term member of The Greens and spent many hours letterboxing and volunteering at election campaign stalls. She generously left a sizable donation in her will to the Greens upon her passing in 2011.
Neroli was a journalist, journalism trainer and rare disease advocate whose life was guided by deep passions that spanned the environment, arts, politics and beyond.
She was a strong supporter of the Greens during her life, drawn to the movement’s focus on socially progressive politics as well as the environmental aspect.
As a volunteer and long-term member, Neroli saw the Greens as a strong and organised voice for promoting environmental conservation and fighting for stronger climate change policy. Her legacy is kept alive by the generous bequest she left to the Greens upon her passing in 2018.
