We catalyze impact by raising funds and recruiting volunteers for projects that advance participatory democracy.
Catalyzing Impact’s initial focus is on voting rights and voter registration. We are targeting states that have adopted restrictive voting requirements or are engaged in gerrymandering, beginning with VIRGINIA.
We identify effective non-profit organizations engaged in countering voter suppression and voter dilution efforts. Once we select an organization, we work with program staff to target a concrete project. We then launch a crowdfunding campaign and mobilize our networks to meet project funding and volunteer recruitment goals. We report back to donors on the impact of each project. If the non-profit organization successfully advances the project, Catalyzing Impact will continue to promote it.
