The Story

We're an unincorporated group, and as such don't have the legal requirements for auditors, a committee or board and so on. This makes us more 'nimble' and also means we're free of costs that can be associated with these things eg for an auditor, or yearly ASIC fees (if the group is set up as a business).

Funds are received into a private account, but all go to offset costs associated with Vegan Sun. None is spent on adminstration, or padding jetset lifestyles roaming the globe. There wouldn't be enough for that anyway - well, maybe for the odd taxi from an airport ; )

All donated amounts are automatically made public. We have no ability to reduce the amounts shown. Correspondingly, things we pay for are listed on our Updates. So if you suddently see a $10,000 increase in funds, without a corresponsing increase in payments, then you can be alarmed and think twice about contributing your money.

Until then, we hope you'll help us spread the profound philosophy and action that makes up veganism, and we thank you if you do!

27 January: $8.76 (US$7.40). Premier App Shop - mobile application hosting (application not yet complete).

So supporters get an idea of what it costs to run Vegan Sun, each month we're going to list payments we make to people for products and services.

As a starting point and reference, though, the total amount we paid last year was $1154.75. This is itemised below and doesn't include the time that volunteers put into Vegan Sun doing things like photocopying on their own printers, distributing brochures and arranging events.

Everyone who does anything for Vegan Sun - from photocopying to representing us at festivals - is a volunteer. Vegan Sun is made *entirely* of volunteers and non-paying members. No one is paid or makes a profit from anything.

Unlike some large groups which have a stash of funds to draw from, that's not the case with us. If we want to do something, and donations don't cover the costs - which was certainly the case last year, when no donations were made - that money comes from our own pockets. We received $20 of donations in 2012, nothing last year, and $15 in donations so far this year (before launching this site).

While Glenn may print some leaflets in colour on his own printer, we print higher volumes in black and white so we get more leaflets for the money.

Here's our spending breakdown from January to December 2013:

18 January: $8.65 (US$9). Meetup website fee.
