This work is funded by the public via direct donations. There are now four usual methods of donation depending on the needs of the donor: Patreon, Bank Transfer, Stripe & PayPal. The email to use for PayPal is email@example.com
Crowdfunding platform Patreon allows for the donor to sign up regular donations and select their own level of support for monthly payment. I try to post monthly to the account to update donors on my latest work who are not visting my site or following me on Twitter. People who use this option tend to be those who prefer to be long term patrons of worthy projects or individuals and appreciate the convenience of set and forget, knowing they are taking care of those they value while leading busy lives. Some of my Patreon donors have been with me for years and I thank them for their longstanding generosity and commitment to keep the work I do.

Some people prefer to donate via Bank Transfer: bank transfer either as a one off payment or at regular intervals as then this avoids the fee to me that is charged by Patreon or for other personal reasons. It has the benefit of not having to sign up to a new platform. It can be a good idea to contact me and let me know if you are concerned the details you entered aren't correct - to ensure your money reaches me as intended.
For people who just want a quick way to send money without signing up for anything or visiting a banking site, Stripe allows this via these buttons. The amount is set and is a one-off payment using credit card details. If you put in a valid email address then you should get a receipt. You should see AusGov.info on your bank statement details. The Stripe platform processes all financial information for a secure transation.
Whether a donor is an individual or an organisation, I take privacy issues seriously. In order to avoid breaching people's sense of privacy, unless I am directly contacted about a donation by the donor, I do not thank them unless having a direct conversation about a donation.
Having said this, most people become donors when they read that someone they respect suggests they do. Please take a moment every now and then and, if you are happy to be seen publicly supporting my work, share my work with your networks. While I am yet to receive a minimum wage for what I do I want people to know that I am grateful for both the financial and moral support I receive.
Grants, Ministers and Portfolios in this data relate to the period prior to the 30 March resuffle. If my work receives adequate funding, grants awarded after that period will be added after those decisions are made & as time permits. Ministry & Portfolio names will be updated at that time.

15 Senior Ministers have administered the Agriculture Water and the Environment Portfolio
$448,842 in funding across 4 grants was allocated to 3 recipients of the Antarctica Science, Policy And Presence Program since January 2018
|Portfolio||Agriculture Water and the Environment|
|Category||Natural Resources - Conservation and Protection|
|Agency||Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment|
|Activity||Opening of the Tasman Sea and the separation of Australia and Antarctica: temporal and isotopic constraints to further test the deep-seated Balleny plume vs. tectonic reorganisation models|
|Purpose||The Balleny Plume, which is postulated to be located under Antarctica today, is thought to have produced a ~1200 km chain of volcanoes to the east of Tasmania, and may have acted as a driver for the opening of the Tasman Sea and separation of Australia and Antarctica. We aim to collect rock samples from this chain to assess whether it is an age-progressive track and explore its spatial and geochemical associations with other volcanism in the area. Our new data will reveal the timing of movement and separation of Australia, Antarctica and Zealandia during times of major change in the plate-mantle system, such as during global plate reorganisation events, as well times of dramatic climatic shifts, such as oceanographic changes associated with the opening of the Tasman Gateway and glaciation of Antarctica.|
