GetUp! relies entirely on small donations from the public to operate. We receive no government funding. Your generous donation will help build a better, fairer Australia.

GetUp keeps its internal costs down with a small team of staff, backed up by a larger team of dedicated volunteers. All donations go to our extensive campaign activities, like paid media and designing new interactive technology to get more progressive voices heard across Australia.

We have a policy of financial transparency, so each year we are externally audited and we will post on the website a breakdown of our expenditures.

Due to our legal standing as a political organisation, donations to GetUp don't qualify as tax-deductible. GetUp is strictly independent of government funding. As such we are dependent upon donations from members to maintain our advocacy and campaigning. Sorry if this causes any inconvenience.
