Inward Bound is an event organised by students of the Australian National University and is funded primarily through the student funds. While there will always be elements of secrecy surrounding the organisation of Inward Bound, we believe that there are many aspects of the organisation that can be put on the table for all to see. This year, the organising committee is committed to opening up the organisation process because we are fundamentally proud of the way we handle student funds and secure private sponsorships. The budget for this year’s race is available for viewing below:
Another important element of disclosure is that the items for sale on the online store are supplied by Bursill Sportsgear Pty Ltd. While the store is run mainly to benefit competitors through cheaper prices, the Inward Bound budget also receives a 30% cut of the profits for all sales made on the store.
