When millions of people from coast to coast can easily chip in a few dollars online to their favorite cause or candidate, they make it possible for anyone to run for office, no matter their background or connections! Small-dollar donors can help you build a more sustainable campaign, get more people involved in your mission, and use your money more wisely. In this webinar, ActBlue’s digital fundraising experts will share with the Rep19 community how a small-dollar donor campaign is possible for any candidate — state, local, and federal — running anywhere. Topics include how to build your email list, harness the power of grassroots donors, and much more.
