As a part of the Australian Institute of International Affairs, the preeminent think-tank on international affairs and foreign policy here in Australia, the AIIA Queensland relies greatly on the generosity of the broader public through memberships, ticket purchases and of course, donations.

We are incredibly grateful to all our members and those that have come out to any of our events for your support. We pride ourselves on providing a platform for insightful and thought-provoking discussion, accessible to both an online audience and also those who wish to attend face to face, and every dollar goes a long way to making this happen.

But our activities take time and money to organise and run. Ticket sales are strong, but our fees are modest, and our events are free for members.

Unlike some of our interstate counterparts we do not have property or large sums in endowment. We have a part-time administrator who works a few hours a week without whom we could not manage the logistics of our operations.

This is where you can help.

Donations to the AIIA Queensland through the National Office are tax deductible.

Any amount will go a long way in helping us continue to provide a platform for quality discussion and debate.
