Where does the money go?
Together ActionStation members have already chipped in enough money to put a full-page newspaper ad of opposition to the TPPA in both the Dominion Post in New Zealand and the Maui News in Hawaii during the Ministerial meeting there.

Then, we had an incredible opportunity to support local a demonstration in Maui, Hawaii where a group of Union organisers and their allies broke the world record for ‘most people conch shell blowing at one time’. The action took place on a beach near the Ministerial meeting to “drown out the noise of the TPPA negotiations”.

Then we raised funds to print posters, signs and banners for the TPPA march that took place all around New Zealand.
Signs like this one:
And now we want to put our message on the radio!
By chipping in you’ll be making sure we make our voice heard, again and again until we defeat the TPPA.

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.
