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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
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.

Growing and Supporting Rugby League in Papua New Guinea
The purpose of this grant activity is to deliver against two of the three objectives of PacificAus Sports - one of the Australian Government's flagship Pacific Step-up Programs. Through a long-term twinning program between the Queensland Rugby League and the Papua New Guinea Rugby League Fedearation (PNGRFL) Australia will be able to strengthen the ability of the PNGRFL to support PNG teams to play in high-level Australian sporting compeititons (obective one) by lifting the organisations administrative capacity and comercial footing. The grant activity will also create pathways for emerging PNG (female) athletes to benefit from high-performance coaching and training (objective three). This will be instrumental in delivering the broader gender equality aims of PacificAus Sports.
