White Man Behind a Desk has been described as the “kiwi John Oliver”

Tax isn't a topic most of us like to talk about or find very funny. But it's crucial that we do. It's what funds the things we value like schools and hospitals. Yet too many rich people avoid paying their fair share. 

Satire is powerful way of making important complex issues easier to understand and accessible to a wide audience.

That's why we've teamed up with the satirical genius of White Man Behind a Desk to make an explainer video that explains how rich people avoid paying tax in New Zealand and what we can do about it. Will you please chip so more people can see this video?

    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.
