We know the major parties spend big bucks on winning elections. Therefore, sadly, even the most amazing independent candidate will not be able to win in Goldstein without significant funds to spend on advertising and other campaign costs.

We know most of the funds for our candidate's campaign will be raised after they announce publicly, but we also know that a strong launch is key to political success and that costs money.

So we are asking you, the community, to pledge now towards that launch, including the costs associated with online and offline advertising; the candidate's website and campaign materials; key campaign staff and other costs associated with registering as a candidate.

The money you pledge, will not be donated until we have a candidate, but it will allow us to proceed with confidence to line up advertising and campaign staff. It will also give potential candidate's the confidence to commit, knowing that they can run a competitive campaign from the beginning.

Our goal is to raise a minimum of $120,000 in pledges by October 10th. Please pledge now and share this page with your friends.

Donations from outside Australia are not accepted.  By continuing to complete this form, I confirm I am not a foreign donor.
