Folks all over the country have banded together to fight the impact of the pandemic, combat racism and systems of oppression, and protect our democracy. Small-dollar donors are an important part of this work, forming a powerful base of supporters who are ready to get involved and become agents for progressive change. Digital fundraising experts from ActBlue will show you how to reach these donors by building horizontal relationships, using the theory of change, crafting a strong fundraising ask, and employing cutting-edge digital fundraising tools.
This session is sponsored by ActBlue.
