  • Start a monthly donation

    Recurring monthly donations to the Green Party of PEI are immensely helpful to us as we build and plan for success in the next election. It's also easy for you, the giver, with small automatic donations adding up to delightful tax rebates each year (see the table below for examples). That's why we are offering free tickets to An Evening with Elizabeth May to all new and existing monthly donors.

    By starting a monthly donation of any amount on this page, we will automatically put you down on our guest list!

    Why join? 

     

    Many people think that joining a political party means the party 'owns' you. But in reality, it's the other way around: you become an owner of the party!

    As a member, you can vote to decide who Green-party candidates or the party's Provincial Executive will be, you can approve grassroots policies and participate in caucuses, and get involved in shaping the future of the party, and thus the political future of PEI! We can provide you with support to develop a local Green association within your community, and you can even throw your hat in the ring to become a Green candidate yourself. Party membership allows you to participate in another layer of PEI's democracy.

    Many people on PEI are afraid of what effect joining a political party may have on their employment prospects, but this old style of 'patronage politics' is a game that the Green party just doesn't play. Being a member is a totally private decision - the names of party members are never shared publicly - your employers, friends and family will only know if you decide to tell them, or if you take on a public role as a Green!

    Who can join?

     

    Any citizen or permanent resident of Prince Edward Island, who is at least fourteen years old or older, is eligible for membership in the Party, with full voting rights, provided the person is not a member of any other provincial political party. By becoming a member, you are also agreeing to uphold the Constitution & Bylaws of the Green Party of Prince Edward Island.

    Persons who are at least 12 but less than 14 years old may be designated a Youth Member, without full voting rights.

    You can join using a credit card on this page by filling out the form to the left, or download and fill out this form, then mail it in to us along with a cheque or money order for $10 or more.

    Want to make an even bigger impact? 

     

    Please consider becoming a monthly donor to the Green Party of PEI. Monthly donations give us the financial stability we need for long term planning and investments, and after tax credits can cost as little as $2.92/month for a $10 monthly donation. To become a monthly contributor, click here. 

    Monthly contributions make you eligible for a self-renewing membership that you don't need to worry about renewing for as long as your monthly giving continues!
