Member contributions are really important. As a member-owned organisation, your support is vital to Uplift’s success. To help protect our independence, the ultimate aim is to run entirely on small donations. We have already started on the road to achieving this goal. Many people who believe in Uplift have committed to give regular donations: ranging from €5 to €100 a month. Once-off donations and regular contributions are really welcome. If this sounds like something you’d be interested in doing, please take a look at our donate page for the many ways you can make your donation. If you have new ideas about how funds can be raised, please do let us know.
Uplift is about people-powered action, and one of the best ways of being involved is to help organise activities that help make campaigns successful. Organising community-based events is a really important way of being involved. This includes meeting politicians to hand in a petition; coordinating a ‘call in’ to a local radio station; organising a rally or a vigil, a film night, a public debate, a house meeting, a town hall meeting or a fundraiser. Please share your ideas about what you think might work or what you would like to do yourself.
Uplift is for everyone and we want to know what is happening. One way of being involved is to send us images and photos. Where possible, we will publish the most relevant photos on the website or repost on Facebook, Instagram and Flickr. Take photos of your slogans or artwork too, but don’t worry – we always give photo credits! Use the hashtag #upliftireland when posting.
