Today, we released our first quarterly fundraising numbers at Organizing for Action, and I couldn't be prouder.
In just the first few months of this brand-new organization, 109,582 supporters stepped up and invested in what we're building together—from the grassroots up.
As part of our voluntary disclosure, we're also releasing the names of every supporter who has given $250 or more in this fundraising period. You can see the full list here.
To anyone who thought we couldn't do this, these numbers send a pretty clear message. It's never been done before, but supporters like you are doing it.
Here's something else I'm proud of: Our average donation is just $44.
People—especially the special interests on the other side—are taking notice of what this grassroots-funded organization is up to. We're digging in, we're speaking out, and we're amplifying the voices of ordinary Americans on some of the biggest issues of our time.
We're off to a running start, and we're not turning back.
Now my question to you is: Are you going to let those founding members do it all on their own, or are you going to join them? It's not too late.
Organizing for Action is staring down our first quarterly fundraising deadline—ever.
After March 31st, we'll have a record of the founding members who helped build this organization from the start.
You should be one of them. Chip in right now to get in on the ground floor.
No one has ever done what we're trying to do: restore the balance of power to ordinary people by countering the special-interest groups with the most powerful grassroots movement ever built.
Make sure you're one of the folks who will make history.
UPDATED 4/1: Wow. Last night we closed the books on our very first quarter, and the response was amazing. Thank you to everyone who chipped in to show that you're on board for the fights ahead—we'll have more info soon. And if you missed the deadline, there's still time to get in on the ground floor and become a member of Organizing for Action today.
