What we do with your funding

We're an independent campaign who work with all Anti-Brexit and Pro-EU groups to get out the stories of our Remainer Now members.

Our funding currently comes from small voluntary donations direct from supporters. But also a big thank you to our friends at the European Movement for supporting us with website hosting.

Funds raised to date: £20357 (£6688 via Stripe card payments, £2000 via PayPal payments [as of 14th Aug], £9469 via RN crowdfunder, £200 from a joint fundraiser with 'Stop Brexit' in 2018 and a £2000 direct donation- 23rd January 2019 - Thank you!)

[£642 (via Stripe card payments - 2nd November 2018 - Thank you!)]

[£145 (via Stripe card payments - 5th September 2018)]

In February to early April 2019 we ran a crowdfunder with the aim to raise £35k to help us boost our activities and to help us go into key constituencies around the UK and work with local groups to prove they have changed from supporting leaving the EU, to being Remainer Now. We were unable to hit our target, but did raise £11,393 (£9,469.21 after fees) from 465 supporters in 59 days. This influx of funds helped us add one full-time staff member to Remainer Now to act as a Campaign Manager, print placards for the London March, help Remainer Now people travel to the march, create and print our first collateral and merchandise, and have a Remainer Now presence at the Green Party conference in Scarborough. 

We are currently aiming to raise £5k in July and £4k in August to help keep us going, and to get our campaign and people to the Lib Dem party conference in Bournemouth, the Labour conference in Brighton and the Conservative conference in Manchester.
