ActionStation, with the Coalition for Better Broadcasting and Jo Bond, together are preparing our joint submission to the Commerce Select Committee on Thursday 29th July, calling for the Government to properly fund Radio New Zealand.
This group of MPs from all the political parties is responsible for making recommendations on our 32,000-strong petition delivered in April.
We want to make our submission something to remember. We only have 15 minutes to make the case for increased support for RNZ.
Will you please chip in to help us print a professional-looking report that will show the politicians on the Committee exactly what is needed for a healthy and well-resourced RNZ?
RNZ is one of our last remaining public broadcasters and does an amazing job with dedication for high quality public interest journalism.
It’s been surviving by 'finding efficiencies' and new ways to produce content. But with consistent and adequate funding it would have confidence to face the future and better serve the varied needs of our diverse and changing population.
We would love to be able to put in the hands of each MP a printed professional report filled with expert input, up-to-date data and statistics and photos of people in our community. Will you contribute to help us help RNZ?
ActionStation campaigns are entirely crowdfunded by people like you. Your contribution, however big or small, is what keeps this engine running.

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.
