Donate to Support the Green Party

Posted on January 7th, 2011

Why Donate?

Because elections cost money.

Your support will help us get a piece of literature to each household in the riding – thus assuring that our candidate’s name is out in the community. We also need a budget for signage and to feed our volunteers.

As well, new technology has changed how the 2011 election campaign will play out–and it allows the Green Party to reach out as never before.

Our first ever virtual town hall meeting let thousands of Green Party members across the country hear directly from Elizabeth May and put questions to her. We are reaching new audiences through social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.

Help our candidates use both old and new ways of engaging voters with a contribution towards:

  • Web domain registration $12
  • 1 big lawn sign $20
  • 1,000 candidate postcards $100
  • Candidate website $500
  • Campaign-in-a-box including Green Party t-shirts, buttons, and coffee mugs $1,100

During an election we receive a 50% rebate on campaign expenses, so your donation has twice the impact. After tax credits, a $100 donation costs you only $25 but gives us $200 worth of spending power.

On behalf of our candidates, we thank you for supporting them as they surrender their personal lives to the campaign and raise voter awareness of the necessity of a Green future.
