Women for Election is a not-for-profit and is funded through a mix of philanthropic grants, private donations and revenue generated through our training programmes.

We need long-term, sustained funding to make sure our mission of more women in Irish politics and decision-making positions is achieved. Supporters can help Women for Election in a variety of ways, including one-off donations, monthly payments, and through the Countess Markievicz Circle (€1,500 a year).

If you want to help us change the face of Irish politics and get more women on the ballot and into Leinster House, donate. No amount is too small.
