Crowdfunding update - new target!
By Bess Mayhew | 30 November 2016
Incredible! You've helped smash our target of £100,000 in just two days - an overwhelming response!
Thanks to you, we'll be able to give candidates who share our values the support they need to win.
But we're not stopping there. We're delighted to announce a stretch goal of £250,000.
If we reach this target, we will use part of the crowdfund to 'sponsor' candidates from disadvantaged backgrounds and under-represented groups.
Did you know it costs the average MP over £30,000 of their own money to get elected? Most people simply can't afford that. So our Parliament becomes skewed towards those who don't represent ordinary people.
More United's political sponsorship will help elect more diverse MPs, by ensuring they can afford to run for election. This will make sure our Parliament is made up of politicians who truly reflect the people they represent.
Thank you for everything you've done so far. Let's take this to the next level.
