Donation options are the same for both Haring and Hampton Members
Haring Memberships are named after artist, HIV/AIDS activist and philanthropist Keith Haring (1958-1990).
Joining as a Haring Member means 100% of your donation (minus transaction fee) will contribute to established organisations lead by / doing great work with the LGBTQIA+ community in Australia who have the ability to do a whole lot of good with the funds (they must have Deductible Gift Recipient status). It also means that your donation is tax-deductible, which is awesome.

Hampton Memberships are named after lesbian, woman of colour and philanthropist Mabel Hampton (1902-1989).
The special thing about joining as a Hampton Member is that there are no restrictions on what your donation goes towards when it comes to tax status. So, whilst your donation will not be tax-deductible, 100% of it (minus transaction fee) can go to individuals, one-off projects, campaigns and innovative or new initiatives – provided their purpose is charitable.
