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, paid media and designing new interactive technology to allow more progressive voices to be heard across Australia.
We have a policy of financial transparency. Each year we are externally audited and endeavour to update the website regularly with 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.
ABOUT SSL CERTIFICATESCredit card transactions are processed online using Camtech's payment Gateway. All information is encrypted before being sent using SSL certificates.

GetUp is a not-for-profit organisation and does not receive any money from any political parties or the Government. Instead we're supported by thousands of individuals who may not have a lot of time or money, but who care about the issues and want to have a say. Over 50,000 Australians have chipped in to fund GetUp's campaigns, and the average donation is just under $42. That's something to be very proud of.
The majority of donors to GetUp give under $100, but some individuals and organisations have contributed more. Like all advocacy organisations, GetUp is required by law to disclose to the Australian Electoral Commission the identity of any donors who give over $11,200 in a financial year. These disclosures take up to 18 months; for example, donations to political parties and advocacy organisations during the 2010 Federal Election won't be disclosed to the public until February 2012. We believe those laws should be tightened, so GetUp is immediately making public all donations to GetUp over $11,500. All future donations over $11,500 will be published on our website within 30 days of their receipt.
If you donate towards a particular campaign, we will only put that money towards the issue you're passionate about. We rely on those donations that are not dedicated to specific campaigns; to keep our small office running and maintain the website. These donors make everything possible, and give all GetUp members the chance to influence change on the issues you care about. Our dedicated team of staff are backed up by the inexhaustible energy of interns and volunteers who make sure your dollar goes a long way to creating a progressive Australia.
We know that being transparent about the donations we receive is important to members - check out our donations disclosure page here.
