When we put together our fundraising report for the second quarter, two stats stood out:
- Our average donation was $28
- 80% of the people who contributed were donating to our campaign for the first time
That’s what a truly grassroots campaign looks like, with zero big checks collected from wealthy donors at closed-door fundraising events, and zero dollars from PACs or Washington lobbyists.
And more and more people are joining the fight.
Because Elizabeth doesn’t cater to big donors, she can spend more time talking with people across the country about the problems they face — and working on policy plans to solve them.
But that means grassroots donors have even more power to keep this campaign running as strong as possible. Thank you for being on this team — can you make your first contribution today? $28 makes a real difference.
If you’ve saved payment info with ActBlue Express, your donation will process automatically:
Your support will make it possible to keep building a presidential campaign without relying on powerful special interests or spending hours at swanky fundraisers behind closed doors.
You’ll help support all of Elizabeth’s new plans, all of the new town halls she’ll host, all of her selfie lines, and all of the new people who’ll get to hear from her from the first time.
This is another meaningful way you can help make sure Washington works for everyone, not just the rich and the powerful.
And by making your first contribution, you’ll help make it clear — in our next fundraising report — that there’s still a growing group of people owning a piece of this campaign for the first time.
Please chip in $28 today and help show that we’re ready to fight for big, structural change.
Thanks for everything,
