The Independent Network must raise funds from its membership if it is to continue campaigning after the Local Elections 2011. Without a membership fee, large donors or a large organistion’s funding, the IN’s external funding sources are close to drying up.
More than ever the IN is reliant upon private donations. “Sadly we receive no state or trust funding. We require essential funds for the everyday running of the organisation, such as office facilities and staff,” said Brian Ahearne, Director of the IN. “Urgent funding for campaigning and co-ordination is desperately needed if we are to establish national credibility for Independents.”
The IN would appreciate any knowledge of potential sponsors and fundraising opportunities. The more funding received, the more support can be provided for independent candidates.
Donating couldn’t be easier, you can donate securely and easily on PayPal. Alternatively you can also send a cheque made payable to the Independent Network to Independent Network, Omnibus House, 39-41 North Road, London, N7 9DP.
