Donate to Dean Hopkins Mayoral Campaign

In order to donate, you must be an individual and a resident of Alberta (no unions, corporations or associations). We cannot accept donations totalling over $5000. 

Dean Hopkins is a working-class man, who over the past couple of years has been working to fund as much of his campaign preparations as possible from his own paycheque. Dean does not have corporations waiting on the sidelines to support him by donating thousands of dollars. Dean stated, “How can I ethically expect the citizens of our city to donate anything to my election campaign in these very financially challenging times if I’m not prepared to throw every dollar I possess into this campaign?”

To run a successful campaign there is a multitude of moving parts including website design, marketing materials and strategies, campaign locations, advertising, computers, printers, stationery, communications, and much much more. The logistics of running a successful campaign pivots around the campaign budget. The bigger and more donations a candidate can obtain, the more effective they can be in getting their message out to the 1.6 million citizens in this city. Media time comes with a price tag.

To give you some idea of how much a Mayoral campaign can cost, look at the figures below. These figures are real from the last election campaign. As you will see, the numbers are staggering:

Candidate Campaign Period Expenses Donations Received

William (Bill) Smith $836,916.53 $916,288.71

Naheed Nenshi $688,705.00 $728,206.00

Andre Chabot $250,735.31 $262,291.42

As you can imagine, the task of running a successful election campaign is daunting, especially when competing against the pillars of power in this city. Dean Hopkins is simply a working-class man. It may appear to be pointless looking at the above figures; however, Dean is no ordinary man. Dean is a man on a mission and a man who has a vision of just what Calgary can become with the right leadership and pull our economy out of the ashes of the recession that we are experiencing today.
