Help Keep Sydney Open

Keep Sydney Open needs your help to continue shaping the conversation around Sydney's cultural life.

We still need to fight this Nanny State Government and we plan to be right there setting the agenda and holding our elected representatives to account 

As a grassroots movement we are up against some big parties and even bigger money. Your donation will help Keep Sydney Open influence the implementation of smarter policy and changing the face of NSW politics.

We will continue working towards our vision of bringing Sydney back to life! 

Fall in foot traffic (from the years preceding the lockouts to now) is estimated to be anywhere between 40–80%.

It’s critical that we work hard to reinvigorate and revitalise our city.

The money you donate will be used to bring awareness to the issue, fight for compensation for those effected, as well as supporting live music and culture through events in local venues.

Thank you for your support.
Together we can Keep Sydney Open!

  • A business must have an Australian ABN or ACN to donate.

  • Donations are capped at $2800 per financial year.

  • In NSW, certain entities and people are prohibited from making political donations. These are property developers; tobacco, liquor or gambling industry business entities, any industry representative organisation if the majority of its members are prohibited donors and close associates of prohibited donors.
