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

We are delighted that the Department of Housing, Planning and Local Government have given a commitment to ongoing funding for Women for Election. However, this funding meets less than half our costs and we need to fundraise to ensure we can continue our work to see #MoreWomen elected.

Long-term, sustained funding is essential for Women for Election to deliver on our commitment to political transformation and successfully inspire and equip women to consider politics as a career option. 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.
