Your campaign needs money, and a lot of it. Every campaign does. Money is what powers our message, helps reach voters, pays organizers, and sustains your campaign. In this session we will cover the best practices and newest techniques and technology for campaign fundraising. Every participant will leave with a better understanding of everything from call time, events, texting, bundling, budgeting and more. Participants will hear from prominent progressive fundraisers, who have worked with notable progressive candidates and organizations such as Rep. Cori Bush, Rep. Jamaal Bowman, Justice Democrats, and more.
