Our members are the backbone of the Greens. They’re the reason we keep going from strength to strength, even as we face some of our biggest challenges yet.
We’re a grassroots, people-powered party, which means joining the Greens gives you a real say in progressive politics. Our members formulate Greens policy; have access to world-class training and members only events; and decide who will represent us in Parliament.
The Greens SA have an equitable new membership structure to ensure membership is accessible to everyone. Here’s how your membership supports our movement:
Under 18 years ($5) / First Nations ($0) / Concession ($30)
Accessible membership options for young people, First Nations people and healthcare, student and concession card holders. Your participation as members is crucial to ensuring that our membership reflects the make-up of our society.
Your contribution provides a consistent revenue stream that enables us to pay the rent, keep the lights on and pay our essential office staff.
Standard ($120) / Greenscheme ($15 per month)
Your contribution enables us to subsidise Greens memberships for young people and low-income earners. It also provides additional revenue that enables us to hire permanent campaigning and organising staff, and make bold plans for the future of our party.
How to decide
While it’s entirely up to you, we encourage you to select the membership option that best reflects your circumstances and what you can comfortably take on.
You might opt to pay less on the scale if you:
- Have caring responsibilities
- Have significant debt
- Have a concession or health-care card
- Are receiving income support payments
Please consider paying more if you:
- Own the home you live in
- Have investments, retirement accounts or inherited money
- Travel recreationally
- Have access to family resources in times of need
- Work part-time by choice
- Have a relatively high degree of earning power
- Benefit from structural privilege, like gender, racial or class background
Your membership is a powerful way to help ensure the Greens SA have the resources to build our movement and increase our parliamentary representation at all levels of government.
