  • Our income in 2023

    And what we've done with it

    Note on income

    This year, our grants income is noticeably more than we received in member donations. Member donations have continued to decrease, primarily due to regular donors decreasing the amount they give or stopping their donation entirely. This isn’t unique to ActionStation; nonprofits elsewhere in the world are having the same experience1. We are therefore increasingly depending on grant providers to fund our mahi.

    While grants can help us with our campaigning mahi, they rarely cover any of our operational costs such as keeping OurActionStation running and the people behind the scenes who look after the less glamorous tasks.

    Will you chip in to sustain ActionStation so together we can continue to support and win people-powered campaigns for a fairer, flourishing future for Aotearoa?

    Note on expenses

    Our campaigns expenses were higher than normal this year, due to our Triple The Vote election campaign. We had expected this, and we are grateful to everybody who donated money for that mahi.

    Our funders

    Thank you to everyone who has supported ActionStation’s work financially over the past year. 39.3% of our funds come from small donations from our wider community. In 2023, we received grants from the Peter McKenzie Project, Quatro Trust, Wayne Francis Charitable Trust, Wellington Community Trust, Lush and the Clare Foundation. You can see a list of our past funders here.

    You don’t have to be a billionaire to make a big difference: all of us giving what we can adds up to a powerful force for a more beautiful, just and equitable Aotearoa.
