AustLII's 2016 End of Year Appeal

This is an appeal to all our users – we need your support!

Please help us make sure AustLII stays free for everyone to use.

AustLII is a small organisation with limited financial resources. We need to raise about $1.1 million dollars a year to sustain our operation. With only four weeks to go before the end of our financial year we are about $200,000 short of our target.

We rely on the support of our users to provide the essential funding that enables the AustLII Foundation to maintain the human resources, technical capacity and computing infrastructure to keep AustLII on line.

For more than twenty years AustLII has provided free access to public legal information for everyone, irrespective of their means. This supports the effective functioning of the rule of law, and provides essential legal information that benefits the community.

We continue to be the most used website providing free access to Australian legal resources. In 2015 we served 254 million requests for legal information. That number will be exceeded in 2016.

AustLII does not sell advertising or seek user access subscriptions because they are inconsistent with our commitment to free access. Read our Case for Support for more information.

In order to maintain our service, we ask all our users who can afford to do so to make a regular contribution that reflects the value of AustLII to them and to the Australian community. The legal profession, business and industry, courts and tribunals, government agencies, educational institutions and the general community all make contributions to support AustLII. See who supports us.

The AustLII Foundation Limited, a not-for-profit company with charitable Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) status, maintains our Australian services. This means that all contributions to AustLII (over $2) are tax deductible.

If you have not contributed to AustLII in 2016 we urge you to do so now.

If you have already made a contribution this year – thank you - can you afford to increase your level of support?

Please support AustLII by making a contribution today.

Thank you.
