How you can support EL candidates

Early Money for candidates

EMILY’s List distributes money from this fund to endorsed candidates to help them start off their campaigns. 

Candidates often use this injection of funds to pay for campaign photographs or to develop a website.

This funding can also help candidates to approach other potential donors for support.

You can contribute to our Early Money fund by donating to EMILY's List; buying merchandise or attending our events.

Donate directly to our women candidates

In the lead up to federal, state and territory elections, EMILY's List drafts profiles of our endorsed candidates which outline their experience and the challenges they face in their campaigns.

These are then provided to members and supporters and included on our website – with a direct donation link – which enables donors to make a personal decision about whose campaign they wish to support.


Election candidates need an enormous amount of support from volunteers willing to provide their time, experience and expertise.

If you would like to volunteer to be part of a candidate’s campaign, please email us and we will put you in touch with a campaign in your preferred area.
