Trust Democracy is a volunteer-led incorporated society made up of members with a strong interest in our core question: “What does it take to make democracy work as it should?”

Trust Democracy organises events, workshops, conducts research and projects, engages in public policy and decision making processes, etc.

Becoming a member

We do not charge a membership fee and ask instead for koha or a donation. We ask you to decide how much you can afford and how much you would like to give.

Click here to see Trust Democracy’s Constitution. Please pay particular attention to Part 2 (Purposes) and Part 3 (Membership), including Rule 18, which relates to the privacy of members’ personal information.

Helping with a donation

While volunteers can do a lot by donating their time, energy and skills, financial donations are also very welcome. To donate, please go to our Givealittle page or make a direct transfer to our account. Please contact us to let use know you have made a donation.
