UPDATE – Friday 7 July
GetUp! couldn’t lie straight in bed – more obfuscation from GetUp!’s National Director Paul Oosting!
He won’t give us a straight answer (see our hilarious Facebook exchange at the bottom of the post) but in today’s The Guardian he writes:
“In the last financial year we took money from 57,419 individual donors, making a whopping 491,228 individual donations. A full 97% of these donations were under $100.”
By our reckoning, they get 9 out of 10 million dollars from overseas mega-rich individuals, channelled through a web of “foundations”.
When will they answer our questions on exactly WHAT PERCENT of donations are under $100?
