FRoGG Activist

By making a recurring monthly donation of any amount you will be recognised as a FRoGG Activist!  We encourage you to consider donating 1% of your income. 

Why 1%? 

Because the Greens are leading by good example to actualise the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), and as a Global Greens exemplifies the SDG Goal 17: Revitalize the global partnership for sustainable development.  The UN’s target for international aid spending is 0.7% of gross national income.  Greens can and are doing better than that - for example, the Green Party of Sweden has achieved the Greenest national budget ever and includes 1% GNI going to international development assistance.

Greens activists and parties can do the same by contributing at least 1% of their income to support the development of Green parties globally! 

Join the movement to donate 1% of your income to the Global Greens!  Once you set up a recurring monthly donation you will have the option to be recognised as a FRoGG (Friend ofthe Global Greens).

FRoGG Green Party  

Green Parties become FRoGGs by donating at least 1% of party income to the Global Greens.  Each party decides the income streams where the 1% contribution applies.  Read Why 1%?

Example: The Asia-Pacific Greens Federation (APGF) have already agreed for national &/or state level Green Parties & Members of Parliament to donate 1% of their income to international Greens work. This is split equally between the Asia Pacific Greens Federation and the Global Greens.

Some local parties (state, regional and municipal) are also contributing!Would these options be applicable for your party?  Find out how to become a Green Party FRoGG by contacting Eva Goës, GG Fundraiser, [email protected]

Projects related to these topics should be developed among the Green parties themselves.  The Global Greens organisation and secretariat can support the project work by using the GG platform for communications, coordination, and faciliting operations wherever possible.  Contact the GG Secretariat to share your project ideas, at [email protected]

Donation principles

The Global Greens Coordination adopted the following principles in relation to donations in May 2011. They apply to donations, in-kind contributions, sponsorship and the like.

  • The Global Greens welcome donations, as well as in kind contributions, to support our work.
  • We will seek to ensure that donations are not accepted from sources whose actions and values are inconsistent with the principles of the Global Greens Charter.
  • We will maintain and periodically publish a list of significant donations.
  • The Global Greens Coordination will be responsible for determining how donations are spent. Donors may express a preference but not determine the use.
  • Global Greens donations will be used to the support the work of the Global Greens and its member federations. They may also be used to support the development of member parties and political movements but will not be used for direct election campaigning.

The Global Greens Coordination is responsible for ensuring that the donation principles are implemented including by:

  • establishing criteria for significant donations;
  • setting up a screening mechanism for any donations that may need review;
  • regularly publishing lists of significant donations;
  • establishing a list of unacceptable donation sources.
