Welcome to Part 4 of our 2023 fundraising story. 

What your funds will cover 

In 2022, we ran our campaign in four months.  It was extremely intense, hectic and a lot of fun. 

Between now and the next election, we have more time. Whilst we don’t yet have a firm idea about what the election issues will be, we absolutely know now what the logistics involve.  

We are preparing campaign assets, securing early bookings for venues and signage, and organizing printing and storage well in advance. This allows us to focus more on campaigning and less on administrative tasks once the election is called.  

In 2022, advertising, promotion, design, and printing was 72% of all expenses. With early access to campaign funds, we can negotiate prices and timelines better, resulting in reduced costs.  

Our campaigning costs cover items such as  

  • Flyers  
  • T-shirts 
  • Town Halls  
  • Corflute signs 
  • Billboards 
  • Social Media 
  • Volunteer training

Below is Nicolette’s post to launch this campaign.  See her op-ed here and please see more info on this fundraising and consider donating here. 

Thank you for your on-going support, in whatever way you can.

@Nicolette_Boele Twitter Post 28 April 2023: The ALP has been in Gov nearly a year; we've had some wins on #integrity, #climate & #gambling, but not enough. When you follow the $$$, it helps explain why. That's why I'm trying a new way of raising political campaign funds. Asking people, not corporates to fund me.  You can read my op ed here: And if you’re up for helping reform political campaign finance, please donate - it feels nearly as good as giving blood. Try it!

 

Before you donate, please read

Even though a federal election (or a by-election!) has not been called, the laws applying to political campaigns still apply. More information is here. The AEC website always has the latest information here. Nicolette’s own policy is to declare donations (donor name and amount) over $1,500 in aggregate over the financial year; also she does not accept donations from non-human entities that are operated for profit alone
