Donations Policy

DRIVEN BY MAINSTREAM AUSTRALIANS

Advance Australia is a not for profit, independent community organisation who campaigns to ensure mainstream values and freedoms are protected, defended and advanced.

We want an Australia which is strong, safe and free.

Advance Australia is your voice for a fair go. To amplify your voice, we raise money through donations to pay for things like advertising, digital content, research, billboards, print advertisements and data. We accept donations from mainstream Australians who share our beliefs.

We are driven by you, not business, a union, a religious organisation or any other community organisation. We are not a political party and are not aligned to any – we are truly independent.

We are not a charity and we don’t want or accept funding from any government.

When you support Advance Australia you're empowering millions of Australians who agree with us, on vital issues like stamping out political correctness, protecting freedom of speech, religion and association, creating economic opportunity and restoring a fair go and family values.

Your donation makes our movement stronger and enhances Australia’s democracy now and for future generations. We believe that every Australian should have their say, not just elites or left wing-activists.

DONATIONS POLICY

Advance Australia is deeply committed to the rule of law, together with enabling greater democratic participation via donations from everyday Australians.

However, there are some individuals (like people who aren’t Australian citizens) and businesses from whom we don’t accept donations due to our principals, mission and core values, together with electoral laws across the country.

By donating to Advance Australia, donors confirm that:

  1. The individual or entity making the donation is not a Foreign Donor, as defined by the Commonwealth Electoral Act (1918).
  2. The funds they are donating are not being provided to them by another person or entity for the purposes of making their contribution.

As a registered Political Campaigner, Advance Australia is obliged under the Commonwealth Electoral Act to disclose to the Australian Electoral Commission (AEC) cumulative donations of $14,300 or more in a financial year. The AEC will publish these reports on its website.

QLD ELECTION GIFT PROVISIONS

By donating towards Advance Australia’s Queensland State Election campaign, donors confirm that the following statements are true and accurate:

  1. The funds they are donating are not being provided to them by another person or entity for the purposes of making their contribution.
  2. The payment is not made by or on behalf of a ‘prohibited donor’ (being a ‘property developer’), or a ‘close associate’ of a ‘prohibited donor’ as defined by the Electoral Commission Queensland.

Disclosure of Donor Identity

Donors who contribute an amount of $1,000 or more in aggregate are required to be disclosed to the Electoral Commission Queensland.

This disclosure is made by Advance Aus Ltd. and must include the name and address of the donor. Donors which are companies or trusts must provide details of financial officer or trustee(s) as applicable.

End.
