Donate to MK Lib Dems

Support our campaigns to elect more Liberal Democrats in Milton Keynes.

The Liberal Democrats rely on small donations from individuals like you. We’ve never had the big business or trade union cash the other parties can count on, especially at a local level.

You can help us achieve the changes we all care about by standing for election, delivering leaflets, canvassing voters or making phone calls. But you can also help by making a donation.

Money donated will go to the Milton Keynes Liberal Democrats to be used to support the election of more Lib Dems in elections in MK.

  • £5 will pay for a street letter on a key issue
  • £20 will pay to upgrade a ward Focus issue from black and white to having another ‘spot’ colour for one edition
  • £50 will pay for a round of targeted letters to specific voters we need to reach
  • £150 will pay to print a black and white Focus leaflet for an entire council ward
  • £200 will pay to print a colour Focus leaflet for an entire council ward

You can donate using PayPal (button below), and if you do please let us know who you are by sending your details.  If you donate £100 or more we may need to take additional details from you to confirm you are a valid donor. If someone donates more than £500 in a single year the party will need to declare the donation to the Electoral Commission.

If you would prefer to donate through any other route please email us at [email protected] and we can discuss other options.
