Raising Funds Without Selling Your Soul
Building a movement is expensive. There are accounting and attorney's fees, website hosting and development costs, database management contracts, and specialized software to meet Federal Election Commission guidelines. Add to that the cost of phones, utilities, rent, computers... and that doesn't even include the millions of dollars needed to produce and run campaign ads. The downfall of many a grassroots organization has been the need for funding. In far too many cases, organizations are reduced to accepting mega-donations from individuals or organizations - but that money always comes with a price.
