ARE YOU READY TO GIVE SMART?

A state legislative campaign usually costs less than 10% of a competitive US House or 3% of a competitive US Senate race, which means your donations go furthest when they go to state legislative races. That’s why The States Project and Data For Progress created the Give Smart program. We use a combination of district-level modeling, electoral and demographic information, and the latest on the ground intelligence about campaigns, to find the races where your donations go furthest. And 100% of your donations go to the candidates.

We are currently reviewing upcoming state legislative races to find opportunities for your donations to make a difference—we won’t ask for them unless they’re really needed. Sign up for our email list for targeted recommendations on how best to Give Smart!
