The ambitious £100,000 goal for the Believe in Scotland Crowdfunder is en-route to be reached with three days left to go.
On November 10, the fundraising officially began, with Business for Scotland donors agreeing to match public contributions pound for pound.
We assist regional organisations, according to Gordon MacIntyre-Kemp. In order to achieve Scottish independence, the grassroots independence movement is crucial. To aid the grassroots, Business for Scotland created the Believe in Scotland campaign.
Regardless of the path taken to independence, the group has vowed to campaign and claim that “we communicate to the undecided and create the framework for a Yes victory.”
The 127 local Yes organisations operating under the auspices of Believe in Scotland will soon be joined by 10 more. The organisation supports groups by offering them counsel, opportunities for fundraising, campaign message, and campaign materials. It is unaffiliated with any political party.
MacIntyre-Kemp told The National how the Crowdfunder will help “professionalise the grassroots Yes campaign” in the coming year.
“All public donations to our Crowdfunder go directly towards supporting grassroots independence campaigning. All administrative costs like rent, distribution, wages, and expenses are already met by Business for Scotland donors.”
He said: “Early next year we will provide every Local Yes Group with access to a national network of databases to manage memberships, volunteers and canvassing information, as well as access to a mobile canvassing app.
“Our track record is well established already. We have delivered through our affiliated Yes Groups and partners more than 2.6m items of campaign material in less than two years. No other campaign organisation comes close to our size, professionalism, or reach.”
Business for Scotland works to show people that Scotland’s economy will thrive as an independent nation and Believe in Scotland works to support the grassroots movement.
