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.
Each space on our INSPIRE training course costs €199. Help us offer a free space to a deserving woman by either donating the full amount or a percentage of the cost.

In 2013, we established our Countess Markievicz Circle, a group of women and men who are committed to supporting Women for Election by:
Women for Election Cousins is our membership scheme aimed at women in Ireland and around the world who want to support our goal of gender parity in Irish politics. Cousins membership for 2019 is a one-off payment of €50 if you are working full-time or €30 if you are unwaged, an OAP or a student. Your membership fee will financially support our organisation in 2019. A Cousin receives early invites to our free events in 2019 and a beautiful bespoke hand bound notebook from Duffy Bookbinders, a family-run business in Dublin’s Five Lamps district. We are also planning a private event for Cousins in summer 2019.
