$30,000

Fund all of the above + tactical guidance and organizing tools (e.g., autodialers, text messaging platforms) for three of our candidates and their campaign staff

$86,000

Fund all of the above + one organizer for a year, resulting in hands-on support for 20 volunteer teams, 100K field touches, and $200K raised directly to our candidates

We are a small, lean nonprofit organization.

Sister District has low overhead; in fact, we are a remote organization that does not even have an office! We pride ourselves on being conscientious stewards of each and every donation that we receive. When you contribute to Sister District, your gift helps us pay our staff; provide tailored support to our candidates and volunteers; develop powerful organizing partnerships; and educate the public about the importance of state legislatures.

The Sister District HQ team.

Over the last four years, Sister District has transformed an abstract idea into a network of more than 50,000 supporters across the country! We have backed state legislative candidates in 119 races, raised almost $3.7 million straight to their campaigns, and made more than 3 million field touches to voters in 17 states.

And we’re just getting started! Over the next two years, Sister District will be expanding upon our work to build and maintain progressive power through Democratic majorities in state legislatures.
