NDP Break Fundraising Records in Last Year-End Campaign Ahead of Election
Treaty 1 and Dakota Territory, Homeland of the Red River Métis, Winnipeg MB—The Manitoba NDP received more than $300,000 in donations as part of their record-breaking end of year campaign, putting the party on a strong path towards forming government in 2023.
“More Manitobans than ever before have contributed to our movement. They’ve given generously because they are tired of PC health care cuts and Hydro hikes and they are ready for a brighter, more optimistic future,” said NDP Leader Wab Kinew. “Our donors are average families who, even in a cost-of-living crisis, have supported our party and we take that support seriously. Our team is ready to form a government that fixes health care, creates good jobs and makes life more affordable for people.”
The party’s year end fundraising campaign goes directly to supporting the 2023 election campaign. For the third year in a row, the party has broken its own record for year-end donations. The NDP reported 1,200 total year-end donors, more than 130 of whom were either first time donors or long lapsed donors. The largest single day record was $60,000.
Under Wab Kinew, the NDP has hit some of the highest annual revenue targets in a non-election year in the party’s history—including more than $1 million in the 2020-21 fiscal year. The party also ran competitive campaigns in three by-elections in 2022 and, unlike the PC Party, held an annual convention for members.
