Consumer Action seeks to be transparent about our donors and funding sources. Each year, we will list our funding sources on our web page. Individual donors will only be separately disclosed with their agreement. Disclosure extends to sitting fees and other consultancy income above a threshold of $500, but does not include reimbursements (e.g. recovery of costs, or rental income).
