Donations – Fighting Fund

Branch LOGOPlease consider making a donation to boost our  fighting fund.

 

Lib/Lab/Con receive  substantial monies from  business, unions, wealthy and not so wealthy individuals, non-governmental organisations and charities.  UKIP  Head Office does occasionally receive donations  from wealthy individuals but more often small amounts  from  not so wealthy people.  The Party really depends on its membership fees and small donations to keep active.

Your Branch  receives no  money whatsoever from  UKIP Head Office.  No officers of the Branch receive any monies, all are volunteers. We have to try our best to raise monies from our own Branch members and the general public.

If we introduce a new member to the Party we do get to keep the first years membership fee and from then on it is the Party that receives and keeps the membership monies.  So please do encourage any new member you introduce to join the Party to do so via the Branch secretary.   Also, if you can organise a fund raising event, then please let us know.

Why do we need donations?  Principally for the cost of  hiring  meeting rooms and to be able to to fight elections.  This requires  funds for stationery, advertisements, websites, pamphlets, corex boards and other promotional material.

We are most grateful for any donation, small or large to sustain our activities.

Cheques should be made payable to:

‘UKIP Skipton and Ripon ‘

The Electoral Commission regulates the rules of  donations to political parties.

Anyone can donate money to the Branch or Party up to £500 without the legal need for the Branch/Party to disclose the details of that donation to the Electoral Commission.    During an election campaign we would need to record the donation as part of the campaign expenses declaration.
