Register for Part I Register for Part II

The 2018 elections made it clear that investing in small-dollar donors is more than a feel-good idea — it’s a winning strategy. This is especially true in state and local races that don’t cost as much as federal races and are not always in the spotlight. A few dollars can go a long way toward resources at the local level, and a passionate grassroots supporter base will spread the word about your campaign more enthusiastically than any reporter. Learn how to develop a strong digital fundraising strategy, a base of grassroots supporters, and harness the power of small-dollar donors! Hosted in partnership with ActBlue.
