Contest Every Race Grants Program

Candidates and their teams need hubs of organized volunteers to win, and progressive and Democratic activists in outside of urban areas are hungry for connection and support. That’s why we started the Contest Every Race grants program.
The Contest Every Race grants program grants funding and recruitment support to non-urban county Democratic party organizations and offers training, coaching and tech tools to help grow the capacity of these critical rural organizations.

As of July 2023, the program expanded to over 300 county parties. At this time, we are still accepting applications on a rolling basis. Please note that our summer cohort has launched and it may be several months till we can get back to new applicants who have applied after August 1.

“Your program has given us what we needed: access to new concepts, training for outreach, messaging through texts, and the cash necessary to implement the programs we have instituted through your program. Our progress has taken off at a much faster pace than we could have ever expected”
