Movement 2016 Report

We tracked over $2.5 Million to 81 local groups in 15 states. We significantly helped build or strengthen at least 20 local organizations, many of whom received their first grants or first 501c4 grants from us. Our local partners’ voter turnout far exceeded the margin of victory in at least two statewide races: New Hampshire Senate and North Carolina Governor. A full annual report will be completed in early 2017.

NEW! Pop-up Resistance Projects

We’ve tracked more than 200 totally new national resistance projects that have popped up since the election. Indivisible is the most famous of these (we were proud to help move them their first little donations back in January!). But there are many more – and more added each day!  Note: Unlike the rest of the groups on Movement 2017 this is NOT a vetted list, so we can’t vouch for whether to donate to many of them. We’re one of many contributors. Check out the list here. Stay tuned – we’ve got grander ideas in store for leveraging this list and all the connections we’re making throughout the new landscape.

Why Movement 2017 & 2018?

On November 9, 2016, we immediately started organizing locally for 2018. But we quickly realized that movements need money now. And in addition to local groups, there is a gap in funding scrappy national networks. Our question is always “where can my money make the biggest difference?” We’re also establishing a long-term home (that doesn’t change every year) called the Movement Voter Project (MVP). MVP integrates funding and donor advising with other types of support for social movements and local organizations to do vote work.
