Here’s something that makes you special. By being part of Uplift, you’re one of a group of people who do things a bit differently. No big donors, no money from big business or political parties. This community is powered by individual donations from thousands of people like you.
This means we can stand up to the rich and powerful without having to worry about the influence of big funders, corporate donors or the Government. It also means that sometimes we have to rattle the can and ask each other to chip in every so often.
So, I’ll cut to the chase. Uplift needs to raise €51,000 to make sure that together we can run and win the campaigns that matter in 2019. Nobody at Uplift gets paid a big salary, and we keep costs as small as possible.
But, if we want to pay for tactics, technology, training materials, office space, and everything else it takes to keep the lights on — we simply have to raise the money to do it.
This means we really need Uplift members like you to chip in a few euro every week to keep things going — or if that’s not possible a one-off donation would be great.
It’s easy to procrastinate, forget, or hope someone else comes dashing in with the big cheque. But Uplift isn’t that kind of movement. It’s built and run on fivers and tenners from people like you. So please will you do your bit now and chip in?
Uplift members don’t wait for things to change. We make it happen. Every day thousands of us are taking powerful actions — signing petitions, donating a few euro, writing an email to our TD. And when our actions add up, they make us a relentless, unstoppable force in Ireland.
Thank you for being part of it.
