Why Fundraising?

Learn how to make a personal “pitch” to friends, family, and colleagues. Learn from the pros at 31st Street Swing Left! Learn from the pros at 31st Street Swing Left!


About the Trainers and Training

This training will be conducted by Lynn Fletcher and Mary Pence, who head up the fundraising component of 31st Street Swing Left, a chapter based in the DC/MD/VA area.

31st Street Swing Left raised over $1,024,000 for Congressional and Senate races in 2018 and $263,000+ for the 2019 Virginia legislative races.

The training will take you from where you are (“I hate to ask for money”) to where you need to go (“Using a data-driven approach, I developed my own thought-out dialogue for making a personal ask” – an actual comment from a training participant.)

To benefit fully from this training:

  1. Please log on 5 minutes early. We will start on time.
  2. Do the training with at least one other person at your same location.
  3. Print out the handouts prior to the training. Please RSVP for the handout URL.
