Help fund Pragmatic Radicalism

Pragmatic Radicalism has no long-term funding. All its officers work for free in their spare time. Our funding is currently on an ad hoc basis and is provided by interested organisations and individuals for specific events or publications. Pragmatic Radicalism remains totally editorially independent of any funders.

Our events and publications cost money to organise. If you would like to donate to support our continuing work please use the button below. We are are currently seeking funders for our forthcoming Top Of The Policies pamphlet, featuring LabourUncut articles by TOTP event winners and more, and an introduction by Jon Cruddas MP, Co-ordinator of Labour’s Police Review.

We are also seeking sponsorship to help provide refreshments at our Labour Conference fringe event on 1 October (details here).
