Yesterday’s Budget confirmed that the funding support we’ve had from the Australian Government since 2011 has ended.

We failed to persuade Education Minister Christopher Pyne that we need a further two years funding to secure our future. Our aim is to be fully self sufficient by 2017 through the contributions from our global network. A reminder: each of our international operations is locally funded through Foundations and universities. TC-UK receives funding from the UK Government.

We must now take stock.

As a not-for-profit project we offer you and the wider community access to high-quality information devoid of commercial gain or ideological spin.

We unlock and translate the knowledge and research that sits within our universities, research institutes and CSIRO. We believe healthy democracies need access to high quality, non-partisan, evidence-based information. That has struck a chord with our 2.5 million readers a month. And happily, we retain the bulk of our funding through the support of 33 of Australia’s 39 universities as well as CSIRO.

But given we have lost the Australian Government’s funding support ($1m pa or 25% of our budget) we ask that you consider supporting us. By doing so you will help secure the future of The Conversation, and allow us to further develop and improve our service both in Australia and through our global network.

As a not-for-profit company, your donation is tax deductible. https://donate.theconversation.com/

We know not everyone can afford a $300 contribution for the year but that’s less than $1 a day. And it gives you unlimited access to our AU, UK, US and Africa sites.
