Power our independent research

In 2024 the Australia Institute is celebrating our 30th anniversary as Australia's leading think tank -- that's 30 years of big ideas!

For 30 years the Australia Institute’s independent, non-partisan research has played a critical role in shaping Australian public policy for the better. But we can't do it without you. 

Every dollar you donate will power independent research that shapes public policy—or shapes the public policy debate.

It takes a team - when you donate to the Australia Institute you are supporting our economists, researchers, experts and communication specialists to improve public policy. It is people like you who are behind the huge impact of the Australia Institute’s research and analysis.

Some of our recent achievements include: 

  • Playing a critical role in the Federal Government’s decision to redesign the Stage 3 tax cuts to deliver an additional $84 billion dollars from high income earners to low- and middle-income earners over the next ten years, the culmination of five years of Australia Institute research and advocacy 
  • The announcement of no less than six different inquiries into prices and price-gouging, following our influential research exposing how excessive corporate profits were largely responsible for the burst of inflation that followed COVID lockdowns.  
  • The establishment of the National Anti-Corruption Commission, following a decade of research and advocacy from the Australia Institute exposing the serious flaws and gaps in our integrity system. 

But we couldn't do it without supporters like you.

The Australia Institute is not government funded. We are powered by donations from philanthropy and by thousands of supporters across the country who value research that matters. 

Your tax deductible gift today will power the Australia Institute's big ideas in the lead up to the next election.
