More United previously crowdfunded £274,164 from 8,671 supporters.
In November 2016 8,671 supporters pledged £274,164 to make More United the largest political Crowdfunder to date.
On June 8 there is going to be a General Election. For the first time ever, you can influence the outcome with a totally new way of doing politics.
More United uses crowdfunding to help elect MPs who back our values, regardless of what party they are from.
That means that whichever party wins, there will be MPs across all parties who represent your voice in Parliament. And you helped put them there!
Story so far
More United is a 80,000- strong movement giving you the chance to influence politics. Launched last year, we've already raised the biggest political crowdfund in British history, helped elect two MPs in Richmond and Stoke-on-Trent.
How are candidates selected?
There is a three-step process for supporting candidates:
- They support our values
- They are standing in a seat which, with our help, they can win
- Our members have voted to support them (to become a member and get a vote, all you need to do is donate to our crowdfund)
Once chosen, we give them support they need to win, whether a donation or mobilising local volunteers.
Inspired by Jo Cox, More United stands for unity and inclusion in politics - we reject hatred and division. We will only support future MPs who sign up to these values:
Opportunity: a fair economy that bridges the gap between rich and poor.
Tolerance: a free, diverse society where our differences are celebrated and respected.
Democracy: real influence over politics.
Environment: do everything possible to tackle climate change and protect our environment.
Openness: welcome immigration, believe in bringing down international barriers, not raising them, and have a close relationship with Europe.
Sound like the kind of politics you can get behind? Donate to this crowdfund to make our future More United.
What does your money do?
Your donation will ensure More United can make the biggest difference possible in this election. That means supporting our chosen candidates in their campaigns and making sure we can raise even more money in this election. Candidates backed by More United will need funds and support BEFORE June 8. So pledge today so we can help them campaign as early as possible to give them the best possible chance!
