The Online Hate Prevention Institute has a huge impact over almost 5 years while slowly building up our staff numbers. At the end of 2015 we were at 5 full time staff, then due to a lack of continuing funding, we crashed down to zero. Our most recent audited accounts (to 30th June 2017) show that despite a huge drop in resources (to under $28,500) we have continued to have a significant impact with over 25 publications, citations of our work in the UN Human Rights Council and by the Australian Parliament, and with continued work both developing an online community of resilience and solidarity in the face of online hate and significant work on our state of the art software tools. This was all possible through the generous support of a small pool of donors who are making regular donations of about $10 a month. To ensure we have a future and a reliable stream of income, please join our supporters by setting up a regular donation. With a budget this small every dollar we can rely upon into the future makes a real difference to our work.
The Online Hate Prevention Institute (ABN: 65 155 287 657) accepts donations to the Online Hate Prevention Fund which is a public fund listed on the Register of Harm Prevention Charities under Subdivision 30-EA of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1997. Donations of $2 or more made to the fund may be claimed as a Tax Deduction in Australia.
