Alberta Party Fundraising Exceeds Expectations to date

April 09, 2014

2020 Vision plan ahead of schedule, fundraising hits 141% of first quarter target

The Alberta Party raised significantly more money in the first quarter of 2014 than planned, and nearly four times as much as the first quarter of 2013.

“I’m pleased with the progress we made this quarter,” said Alberta Party leader Greg Clark. “Fundraising is an obvious measure of support and it’s gratifying to see so many individual Albertans putting their trust in the Alberta Party.”

The Alberta Party raised approximately $27,000 in the first quarter of 2014, including significant momentum in the last part of the quarter. A detailed disclosure report will be filed with Elections Alberta by April 15th and is expected to be publicly available shortly after.

“Fundraising isn’t the only measure of success. We’ve made good progress and achieved almost all of the goals laid out in our 2020 Vision document, the business plan for the Alberta Party, said Clark. “When I was elected leader I presented the plan which contains specific, measurable targets we will use to guide and track our progress. It also is a tangible example of our commitment to transparency in government.”

“I am especially pleased with the fact that the vast majority of donations came from individual Albertans,” said Clark. “This is an indication that the Alberta Party message of positive change is resonating with the people of Alberta” 

The following is an update on the 2020 Vision targets for the first quarter of 2014:

“The turmoil in Alberta politics has led people to look for a new political home and I believe we can give them one,” said Clark. “2014 is a building year for the Alberta Party as we continue to establish the processes and foundation that will put us in a position to earn Albertans’ trust and elect MLAs in 2016.”
