Aussie Grain4Ukraine Fundraising Appeal
The Aussie Grain4Ukraine appeal is calling for Australian grain farmers to come together to deliver humanitarian support for Ukrainian farmers and farming communities. #AUSSIEGRAIN4UKRAINE
A farmer-led sub-committee of Grain Producers Australia (GPA) has been formed to drive the fundraising campaign and direct targeted humanitarian support, in response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Funds will be allocated towards programs that will help Ukrainian farmers and their communities with long-term recovery efforts.

How can I participate in the Aussie Grain4Ukraine Appeal?
There are several ways that Australian farmers can be involved in the appeal.
1) Spread the word
Show your support by displaying the Ukraine flag on your farm machinery during harvest or any time. We urge you to share images of your flags and machines on social media with the #AUSSIEGRAIN4UKRAINE hashtag.
2) Donate grain
To support the cause, Australian grain producers can donate grain delivered from this year’s winter harvest via a dedicated Grower Delivery Card, in the National Grower Register system. The NGR Card number is 1500 4442 and registered to Grain Producers Australia Limited.
3) CBH Loadnet/WA Process
WA growers delivering to CBH must follow a different process in Loadnet.
Select “Nomination” menu and then “Transfer” from the drop-down menu.
Then enter the GPA account number “40564635” into the “Account number box”
Choose load or part load to donate and confirm – then provides printable confirmation of transfer.
What projects will be supported?
The sub-committee analysed suggestions and determined the most appropriate programs to direct funding towards long-term, future recovery efforts for Ukrainian farmers and their communities, to make a genuine difference as they come out the other end of this conflict. They chose the UN Crisis Relief's Ukraine Humanitarian Fund, World Vision Ukraine Appeal, World to Rebuild Rural Ukraine program and Oxfam International.
We encourage farmers to share this call for support via their own social media channels and networks. Once complete, a project report will also be posted for full transparency.
