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: Patroen, Bank Transfer, Stripe & PayPal. The email to use for PayPal is rosie@ausgov.info

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.

$50

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, I believe that the best advertisement for my work is your support. It is much easier for people to believe others when they speak about the value of my work than when I make my own claims about it. Your willingness to share the reason you support my work is what inspires other people to support my work. 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.

Our Most Prolific Corporate Gift Givers

Have you ever wondered which corporations give the most gifts to our federal politicians? If so, you've come to the right place. My recent analysis of the pecuniary interests register data (what politicians own, owe and are given) provides some answers.

Click on the logo to see gifts to politicians mentioning that corporation in a new page.

QANTAS is by far the most prolific corporate gift-giver to federal politicians and, their giving is certainly not restricted to providing flight upgrades.

QANTAS wants our federal MP's to celebrate the finer things in life with champagne and other assorted alcoholic beverages. The QANTAS Chairman's Lounge is also perk of the job, and one recently removed from Fraser Anning after his recent remarks sparked outrage on social media.

VIRGIN also rewards politicians for their custom, however there is a noticable lack of alcoholic beverages among the bounty.

The third most prolific corporate giver is non other than FOXTEL, which provides subscriptions to MP's.

This list of parliamentarians accepting subscriptions from FOXTEL which I provided to anti-racism campaigners Sleeping Giants last year proved so controversial that Sky and The Australian have been obsessed with Sleeping Giants ever since!

TELSTRA, OPTUS, TABCORP and EMIRATES feature strongly due to their gifts of tickets to events, although TELSTRA also gifts various communications equipment.

CropLife gift various foodstuffs including pudding.

Gifts and hospitality are only two types of declarations made to the pecuniary interests register. You can click on the list below to drill down into the information provided by federal politicians on what they own, owe or are given:

Liberal MP Tony Pasin recently put it on the public record that he had cancelled his Foxtel subscription.
