One-off donations

Declassified Australia will consider the taking of one-off donations for the provision of individual journalism projects. Any such funds will be negotiated with the funder and will only be accepted if transparent, independent, journalistically worthwhile, and in line with the Declassified Australia ethos.

If you wish to provide financial support to the Declassified Australia project – either for the DA project as a whole, or for a particular focused story – please contact us to discuss the possibilities. You can contact us directly at DeclassifiedAus[at] .

The independence of all major donors will be transparently established and these major donors will be made public by Declassified Australia.
