Women for Election: Our funding
As a not-for-profit organisation Women for Election is funded through a mix of philanthropic grants, private donations and revenue generated through our training programmes.
Long-term, sustained funding is essential for Women for Election to deliver on our commitment to political transformation and successfully inspire women to consider politics as a career option.
We are always seeking partners for our work: both funders and organisations similar to ours, in Ireland or internationally, that may be interested in undertaking collaborative projects.
In 2012 and 2013 our core funders included:
We received additional, smaller grants from the following organisations:
In 2013, we established our Countess Markievicz Circle, a group of women and men who are committed to supporting Women for Election by:
- Making a minimum gift of €1,500 per year, renewed over three years
- Opening their networks to Women for Election to help us grow the movement
Members of the Countess Markievicz Circle recognise that to deliver Women for Election’s core mission – to get more women elected – we must have regular, reliable core funding to support the day-to-day running of the organisation.
If you are interested in becoming a member of the Countess Markievicz Circle or making a gift to Women for Election in another way, please contact Niamh Gallagher, co-founder, on 01-6728050 or at [email protected].
