How to make a donation to Project SafeCom
Project SafeCom is a self-funded not-for-profit Incorporated body. Since the start of operations in 2001 we have generated our income from sales of selected books through the website, fundraisers, public forums, film evenings, our stall at events and from memberships and donations.
You can make a donation to us in one of several ways as described below. Note: donations to Project SafeCom are not tax deductible.
Several ways of donating to us
There are several ways you can assist our operations. First, by making a donation, either by cheque or money order, by a transfer of funds into our account, or by making a credit card payment using the well-known PayPal payment processing agency. But ... there are more ways. Below is all the information!
Our two accounts
Project SafeCom has two current accounts. One of them is for general operational expenditure and income, and the second one is our Pledge Account. We use the Pledge Account for periodical donations that go towards remunerations for the Co-ordinator.
While the Co-ordinator and other people who help us, operate entirely as volunteers who do not receive a salary, we have been able to make once-off payments in lieue of volunteer work carried out to the Co-ordinator. These are called Ex-Gratia payments, and they are fully declared in our accounts. Because these are a form of 'donation for volunteer work performed', they are not taxable for us.
Below are the details of the two accounts, and we include a full explanation of how you can make donations or pledges to us into both accounts.
How to make pledges:
There are several ways you can pay a periodical pledge, but the easiest and best way is to set up a periodic automatic payment with your bank, or by setting this up yourself online through your bank account. If you want to pay us periodically by cheque or by using our PayPal system, you'll have to initiate this every time.
Direct bank transfers
Transfer funds directly from your own bank account into our General or Pledge account at the Bendigo Community Bank in Fremantle.

Visit our bookshop
Our often-visited 'bookshop' is right at your fingertips at Project SafeCom. And, keeping in style with what we stand for, we only sell books we endorse in the context of what we're about: accountable government, responsible politics, human rights maintained to the highest standard, and a planet that is cared for with the greatest sense of responsibility and responsiveness during an age where she's in a serious crisis.
Right here on this page, you're looking at two dust-covers that explain it all: Julian Burnside's Wordwatching, and Helen Caldicott's Nuclear Power is Not the Answer. Helen Caldicott's book is more overt than most other books about the dangers we face in a new "nuclear age" - even if nuclear energy is just used for 'peaceful purposes', while Julian Burnside becomes your tour guide to the trapdoors of government spin and urges us to be very, very careful in the words we use, and in discerning the words and statements from government we read.
So, click on the dust-covers and look around the bookshop. At Project SafeCom we're into informing you fully, and while we do that, we have a tiny retainer from the publishers for every book we sell. Happy travels!
