The membership fee is calculated to simply cover current (2016) running costs. The Membership page outlines the details.
But we need to grow the party and that requires us to promote ourselves to gain more members and voters… and so we need funds to grow. We currently have 2,000 members nationally and our target is 4,000 members by the end of 2016.
What is an ACP Supporter?
An ACP Supporter is a member who has also made a voluntary donation as well as their membership fee.
We have set the level of ACP Supporter at $260 – membership fee of $60 and an annual donation of $200. The full $260 is tax deductible. Refer to the ATO site for tax details.
Why become an ACP Supporter?
By combining your membership fee with an annual donation you are supporting us to not only cover existing operating costs, but to invest in order to grow.
Why become an ACP Benefactor?
Your transformational gift could change the face of cycling in Australia.
A few years ago Gerry Ryan OAM, founder of Jayco and generous benefactor to Orica GreenEdge, made the decision to launch Australia into the professional road cycling; with a transformational donation he created a highly competitive road bike team for men and women. Australia is now winning road races.
Similarly, a benefactor could propel the ACP into the political arena and win seats. This would generate such influence that the Party could then create a cycling friendly Australia within a decade that was the envy of the world – yes, even Copenhagen and Amsterdam.
For all fundraising, donations, sponsorship and bequest enquiries contact Rebecca Palser – firstname.lastname@example.org
The ACP is fighting not only to create a cycling friendly Australia, but also to increase cycling participation. This means more bikes, more accessories and more bikes being used and serviced. We are fighting to create a safer, more varied and fun cycling environment – encouraging commuter cycling and cycling for competition and recreation – cycling tourism and mountain biking adventures are all part of the mix.
By sponsoring the ACP you are helping us to advance cycling and the cycling industry.
