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

Bank: St George
Account Name:'Rose Williams'
Branch Number:112-908
Account Number: 485 746 256

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 on your bank statement details. The Stripe platform processes all financial information for a secure transation.

Privacy and your donation

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.

ActivityThis project is called the 'Stay Safe Online, Tell Someone' Program.
PurposeThis Grant is provided to YMCA Services Pty Ltd to deliver the project 'Stay Safe Online, Tell Someone.' YMCA Services is an entity owned by the YMCA Australia and member YMCAs across Australia that provides shared support services to the 14 member YMCAs across Australia that run financially sustainable social enterprises based in local communities. This project will primarily meet six objectives of the Online Safety Grants Program and support the 'supporting innovation' focus area. The project will create and pilot a co-designed online education package, based on previously conducted research based on 'nudge theory', to empower children, young people, and community members to report unsafe online behaviours. Using existing networks, a diverse group of young people will be recruited to assist with development of three separate education packages for children (8-12), young people (13-18) and families. The packages will be freely available through an online learning platform and will be promoted nationally through existing communications channels.
