Marcus Matthews for Seanad NUI Panel

Hello and welcome to my campaign donations page, which is hosted by Irish based and world leading crowdfunding company iFundraise!

My name is Marcus Matthews and I am seeking election to Seanad Eireann to represent NUI graduates and Irish citizens who live at home and around the world.

I am an independent multi-issue candidate and an advocate for progressive change, with proven public policy experience in Ireland. I have personally paid for all of my election costs thus far but I need your support in order to grow my campaign. I have set a fundraising goal that represents the minimum cost to run a one-person lean campaign over the coming weeks, so any donations raised in excess of the target will serve to enhance the reach and effectiveness of my campaign activities.

Unlike some candidates who have previously stood for election in the NUI constituency, I have invested considerable time to prepare an extensive election manifesto that is free of political rhetoric and lists actionable public policies, which I would seek to implement and influence through the legislative process. If you elect me, I will keep you regularly informed about the issues that I work on, such that you can use my manifesto to assess my progress. You can read my complete manifesto and find out more about me by visiting my website.

If elected, I will bring my own ideas to the table and work with my fellow representatives, civil society organizations and passionate individuals to address the key issues facing Ireland today, such as political reform; climate change and infrastructure; lower to middle income tax reform; healthcare, housing and social welfare.

Without your support, this campaign would not be possible. Any contribution, small or large, will go a long way to ensuring that I can reach more registered electors whose vote I am seeking.

Your donation will help to fund campaign activities like the design and printing of election materials, increased campaign management, website and social media promotion, as well as media engagements and the hosting of political outreach events.

In making your donation, please be reassured that irrespective of whether I am elected, any additional funds will be spent on the revitalization of the NUI constituency.

Please help me in my efforts to raise the standards of integrity, transparency and accountability in Irish politics.

With your help, we can implement genuine solutions for Ireland’s toughest challenges.

Thank you.
