How are you funded? And what do you spend the money on?
Extinction Rebellion has been raising money from crowdfunding, major donors, NGO’s, trusts and foundations, with the majority coming from online crowdfunding. We are clear and transparent about our sources of funding and also on how this is spent. Information on fundraising and expenditure can be found in this document and in this slide deck.
How much do you pay your employees?
No one is paid as “staff”. Around 3% of volunteers receive expenses to help cover the cost of living and in some cases external contractors may be paid to deliver essential services. You can read more information on our financial policy and processes.
Are you a registered company? What kind? Do you file audited accounts?
No, Extinction Rebellion is a movement. It receives practical support from a company called Compassionate Revolution which processes donations and spends them to support the movement. Compassionate Revolution files accounts at Companies House. You can read more information about our fundraising and expenditure.
