Chip in to fuel ActionStation in 2017

ActionStation campaign photosTo meet the growing influence of big money in politics head on we will need to:

  • Increase our capacity: ActionStation exists to create change, not just add to the noise. We are a small team of four and our job is to direct your precious time energy for maximum impact, whatever we’re doing. Over the next few months, we will be focussing on increasing our capacity by unleashing the power of volunteers. We were very lucky to recently meet two of the Senior Advisors to the Bernie Sanders campaign for President who taught us how they were able to mobilise hundreds of thousands of volunteers to take the Bernie campaign from zero public awareness, to a near defeat of Clinton in a matter of months. We want to put those learnings into practise here.

  • Improve our technology: The number one proven tactic for getting people out to vote is ‘voter contact’. <sup>9</sup> Meaning someone had a one-on-one conversation with a potential voter - either on the phone, via text message or on their doorstep - and that conversation swayed the person to vote. This election year, we plan to use top-notch technology to unleash the power of people to have hundreds of thousands of conversations with potential voters in New Zealand. But we need funding to build it.

  • Spend more money on Facebook ads: Trump spent $150 million dollars on Facebook and Instagram advertisements in the final weeks of the US Election.Facebook has an incredible ability to strategically target ads to specific audiences at one tenth the cost of traditional television advertising. In New Zealand, there are at least two and a half million people who use Facebook every day. That’s a big audience to tap into at one tenth the cost of TV advertising.

  • We want to be transparent and accountable about who we are, how we are funded and how we spend your donations - please get in touchif you've got a question or any feedback on how we present this information.  In short, we are a member led not-for-profit organisation working hard to bring democracy and fairness back to New Zealand. We model ourselves after our larger sister organisations such as GetUp and 38Degrees.

    Where does ActionStation get its money from?

    ActionStation is independent and member led - we don't accept money from government, political parties or big business.

    We rely on donations from our members to make our campaigns happen. From time to time we’ll ask our members to fund a specific campaign or a specific action (e.g. to pay for the costs of an advertisement or billboard). All donations generated by these are used for that specific project. If for any reason we are unable to spend the money on the action for which it was raised we give our members the option to get a refund, or to choose how they would like to have the money used instead.

    Since launching in 2014, we have also received some money from charitable trusts and foundations. The bulk of our start up funding came from Global Green Grants.

    We are a very lean organisation. Our staff team is small, with one sole purpose - to build and run winning campaigns on issues our members care about. Our operating budget is funded entirely by small donations from members.
