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!
