In the interests of transparency here’s a breakdown of what we’ve spent so far and future expenses that we can use your donations for.
Website hosting email and domain $160 p.a.
Website theme and contact plugin licenses
Media such as flyers, T-shirts
30 T-shirts printed
250 small flyers printed
1 large poster printed
This batch cost $400
We would like to print more flyers and posters and we will begin selling the T-shirts through our website in the coming days.
We also would like to raise money now to print signs for election day.
Candidates support or registration cost
We are running 12 candidates and raising funds for 6 candidates at a cost of $1250. The other 6 candidates will self-fund.
No office expenses at this stage.
People can transfer money directly to our bank account (preferred) or by debit card (we get less this way) on our website. We also accept Bitcoin.
Can donations can be ongoing monthly?
A popular WordPress plugin that has this feature costs $327 p.a. to set up recurring donations.
I’m researching to see if we can set up a Patreon (8%) and still qualify as tax deductible expenses for our contributors.
Is there some event where people can gather and donate?
We are aiming to have a public launch party on the 21st (Sunday) of February at Parliament House. More details to come, stay tuned!… Read the rest
