Where we're at

When we began calling in pledges, we had received over $140,000 in pledges, including $57,000 designated for the first two fundraising stages, which we were asking all pledgers to contribute in June (the $140K pledged covers pledges for all stages of the case). 

The amount we’ve collected to date is over three-quarters of the total amount pledged for this stage of the process, and just over half the goal we set for this stage. Obviously, we’d hoped to be closer to that fundraising goal at this point, but we are encouraged by your support and remain committed to ensuring this case gets to court.

Here’s how we’ll move ahead:

- We’ll be reaching out to like-minded organizations and electoral reform allies across Canada to request their support and to encourage their members and networks to support the case.

- We’re exploring options that will reduce the overall costs of filing the case (e.g. finding experts willing to provide pro-bono testimony, etc.) 

- We'll be continuing our efforts in social media and traditional media to get the word about the case to everyday Canadians who support electoral reform. If you haven't donated yet, you can make your tax-deductible donation here


This project is a collaboration between Springtide and Fair Voting BC.
