We’re excited to share that our online grassroots giving effort, Give Smart, is back for the 2020 cycle. Give Smart activates and engages new online donors, and offers a different entry point to those who are learning what you in this community already know — state legislative races are where your money makes the biggest difference.
Through Give Smart, online donors across the country can contribute to an ever-changing Featured Slate of eight candidates, giving a boost in the states where campaign finance laws give the most power to grassroots donors. We will reassess factors on the ground each week, and make changes to the slate to ensure donations are most impactful in the very moment of giving. These will be the rare online donations where your money goes where it’s needed most.
Give Smart has raised more than $1M for state legislative campaigns to date. And the 2020 Give Smart effort is more deeply researched and comprehensive than ever. For those particularly interested in giving a boost to one state, there are Give Smart pages for the five states (Arizona, Kansas, Montana, New Hampshire, North Carolina).
As you know, at Future Now Fund we’ve endorsed some amazing candidates who can improve the lives of all the people in their states. But they can only win in their competitive districts if they have the resources to get their message out. And in the districts where small donations can make the biggest difference, Give Smart will be there to help.
