We’re entering a period of great activity, with elections scheduled for every year over the next few years – the European Elections in 2014, UK General Election in 2015, Scottish Parliament Election in 2016 and Local Authority Election in 2017. And let’s not forget the Independence Referendum next year!
Our fundraising has traditionally been centred around these elections, however we’d also like to grow the party in Edinburgh as well, and build on our success in last year’s local election which saw us winning six seats on Edinburgh Council.
The Scottish Greens are not funded by large donations from industrial giants or trades union, but purely from small donations from our members and supporters. Our aim is to raise £4,000 in 2013, and we’re well on the way to that total thanks to the generosity of our members. But we still need more!
If you can donate to our Branch Development Fund, and help our branch grow and work towards making Edinburgh a greener and fairer city, then please do consider it. Whether it’s a spare fiver or a larger donation, it will be used to spread and realise our vision.

Terms & Conditions
As a political party we have to adhere to strict rules about donations. Because of this we need to record the names and addresses of donors.
We accept all donations, large or small, but if you wish to give over £500 per year (aggregated) then you need to be on the UK electoral register. We will return impermissible donations.
We must report to the Electoral Commission all donations that exceed £7500. When we do this we must provide the Electoral Commission with the value of the donation and the name, address and other relevant details of the donor – The Electoral Commission will publish your name and the value of your donation, but NOTyour address, in the register of donations.
