About us

A stronger democracy is a worthwhile investment

With the GOP attacking voting rights and fair maps, giving to Democratic candidates and civic organizations that can chart a more democratic path for our country is more important than ever. But most Democratic donations don't go to the races or organizations that matter most for our democracy. States write the rules of our elections, yet many strong candidates in winnable state races can't compete against better-funded GOP opponents. Civic organizations working to engage voters and fight for fair maps also lack sufficient support.

We created Blueprint so you can invest year-round in electoral victories along with the future of our democracy. When you donate through Blueprint, your contribution supports Democratic candidates running in competitive races and impactful organizations working in battleground states. Over the 2020 cycle, 83% of the funds raised for candidates through Blueprint went to races decided by single-digit margins and we made grants to over 40 civic organizations.
