A Green New Deal for America – Matching Donation
Every donation you make to Jill Stein for President, up to $250, can be matched dollar-for-dollar by public financing once we have qualified for federal matching funds. Donate now.
- To qualify for matching funds, we must raise at least $5,000 in each of 20 states.
- The first $250 donated by any individual (this should be you) counts toward the $5,000 goal.
This means that if you donate $250, $100, or $50 right now, your state will be that much closer to qualifying us for matching funds. And once 20 states have raised $5,000 in qualifying donations, every single one of those donations will be matched, dollar for dollar, for the rest of the campaign, in federal matching funds.
See below for a map showing how far along your state is toward qualifying for matching funds:
The sooner we qualify, the better. That’s when we start doubling our green for the Green Party, which means that Dr. Stein can invest twice as much on getting the Greens on the ballot, building our state and local parties, and putting our Green New Deal agenda in the public eye.
As of Monday, February 20th, two states have qualified (CA, MA), one state is close (NY) and four states are halfway there (IL, MD, VA, WI).
Our goal is to qualify in our first 10 states by March 15th.
States that have qualified: California, Massachusetts
3/4 of the way there: New York
Halfway there: Illinois, Maryland, Virginia, Wisconsin
1/4 of the way there: D.C., Minnesota, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Washington
Raised something: Every state.
Donations have come in from every state, so even if you’re living in Oklahoma or Indiana or any other state, don’t worry, you can get there soon! Just donate now: http://www.jillstein.org/donate
Most of the states that are currently in the lead are there because they have actively raised funds for the campaign. They’ve held house parties. They’ve sent out fundraising appeals. That’s all it takes.
In the coming days, we’ll email our lists with updates on how each state is doing, and ideas for how you can put your state over the top, and double your green for the Green Party.
