Overview
The battle for democracy is happening online—but Democrats only spend 5-10% of their budget there. We’re 3K designers, marketers & engineers frustrated with the state of politics. So, we created Tech for Campaigns to share our expertise with campaigns who want a digital makeover. We’re bridging the gap between tech & politics by going from 50 to 500 digital campaign projects in 2018 to get elect progressives and centrists —and giving you access to conversations with tech & political leaders.

Thank you to our supporters -- we have hit our goal but we are STILL GOING! 

The press is taking notice: 

Wired | Recode NPR | TechCrunch | Quartz

 

Are you tired of losing elections and feeling helpless? So are we.

Democrats have all the right ideas—but they're spending their money in all the wrong places. Meanwhile, Republicans are crushing us online. Tech for Campaigns can fix that.

 

 

With your help, Tech for Campaigns (TFC) can build a digital arm for the Left. Our community of 3,000 skilled volunteers will supercharge campaigns with digital expertise—like building email programs, running social media advertising, and analyzing voter data—and software tools we’re building. In short: we give political campaigns a digital makeover. For free.

 

Our goal: complete 500 digital campaign projects by the end of 2018. For free.

With your contribution, you’ll help real candidates across the country win their elections—and join a new dialogue about how tech and politics can work together.

Get access to our fireside chats with tech and political leaders for real dialogues about how tech and politics should work together—and how they shouldn’t. What would you ask former Twitter CEO Dick Costolo or former Michigan governor Jennifer Granholm if you had the chance?

To change politics in America, we need a different solution—and the conversation starts with you.

 

What is the problem?

Democrats are spending their money in all the wrong places—and Republicans are outspending & outmaneuvering us online.

Today’s voters get most of their information online. According to AdWeek, we spend 5.6 hours online every single day. In 2016, more money was spent on Internet ads than television ads in the US.

And yet, Democrats only spend 5-10% of their campaign funds on digital channels!

 

Meanwhile, the Republicans have prioritized digital: they spend more money, for longer periods of time—in smarter ways.

On average in the 2016 Senate races, Republicans outspent Democrats on Google digital channels (like YouTube) by 3 to 1. It got even worse from January to June, to the tune of  20 to 1.

This hurts us everywhere. But it’s been most devastating at the state level—where races are won and lost by just hundreds or thousands of votes.

 

You probably know Democrats lost Congress in the last 2 elections. But did you know we’ve been crushed at the state level too?

 

Why do state elections matter so much?

In most states the legislatures decide how federal and state districts are drawn—AKA, they are really important!

State governments also make decisions on major issues like health care, gun control, and environmental protections. You hear a lot about “taking back Congress” or “flipping the house”—but we can’t do that in a meaningful way without changing how the districts are drawn.

And that starts with the state legislatures.

 

So, how can we fix it?

Tech for Campaigns helps progressives & centrists by matching them with best-in-class talent and technology they need to win state elections.

Our mission: activate our network of 3,000 volunteers to build tech tools and strategies that candidates can use for years to come. We’re not just helping one campaign; we’re changing the way campaigns are run. All over the country.

Today’s voters get most of their information online. And winning online requires better advertising and targeting, smoother websites, and smarter data. But Democrats haven’t caught up—and keep spending their campaign funds in all the wrong places.

 

We match talented experts from our community of 3,000 volunteers to campaign teams—and take on their biggest digital challenges.

Whether it’s running social media advertising programs, analyzing complex voter data, or building tools for automating fundraising research, we’re writing a digital campaign playbook that actually works.

 

How you can help—and what’s in it for you?

It all starts by bridging the gap between technology and politics. With a contribution of $100 or more, you’ll get access to an online fireside chat with a notable pair of leaders: one from tech, and the other from politics. Like Jason Kander and Sam Altman—or Jennifer Granholm and Dick Costolo!

You have a right to be involved in the conversation about the role of technology in politics. How can they work together—and where should we draw the line? It’s not a backroom conversation. It’s something people like you should be able to lead.

 

With your help, we'll tackle 500 digital projects:

    We’ve already proven that TFC works. By next month, we’ll have completed 50 successful campaign projects.


    Next, we'll build technical infrastructure and software tools 

    • Shared best practice guides, templates and toolkits to optimize online spending
    • Data models to help states understand which districts are most competitive—and where to focus their efforts
    • Employ full-time staff to build these products—and manage 500+ teams of skilled volunteers

    Our north star goals:

    • Achieve better political results in 2018 and beyond
    • Widen access to politics and empower long-term volunteerism
    • Teach pro campaigners how to leverage technology to win elections

     

    CASE STUDIES

    Here’s how the campaigns we work with feel about TFC.

    For James Thompson's special Election race in April 2017, we ran their paid social media program. Including their targeting, creative assets, copy and reporting. In under 2 months, our TFC team started their paid programs from scratch, taking them from: 

    •  1,300 to 10,000 followers 
    • 20 to 600 likes per post
    • Engagement levels 15x higher than their opponent's

     

    Meet the TFC Team

    Our founders & volunteers hail from all over—but are proven tech experts who want to change how politics works.

     

    With so many races in 2018, how do you choose which ones to focus on?

    National elections get all the attention, but state-level elections are secretly the center of political power.

    Fun fact: State-level politicians control how much your vote matters—locally, and nationally. Yep. You read that right.

    We know, we know: you probably don’t pay attention to state elections. They’re like the Minor Leagues. But your local state officials control how much your votes matter—because they control redistricting at the state and national level.

    That’s right: in most states, your state legislature gets to redraw the boundary lines of Congressional districts. And for years, Republicans have been doing this in a way that is ridiculously favorable to their candidates—while totally disenfranchising Democratic voters.

    This is called gerrymandering.

     

    Should you care about gerrymandering? Yes—if you ever want Congress back.

    Gerrymandering is secretly the worst problem in American democracy. The Republicans are rigging the game, and we need to take action now.

    Republicans use gerrymandering to suppress the impact of your vote. And the votes of women, minorities, and other groups that tend to support Democrats.

    In 2020, your elected state officials will redraw their districts—and we’ll be stuck with those lines for another ten years.

    So, the people we elect next year matter. A lot. We need to start taking back the states now to even have a chance of taking back Congress in 2020.

    It's 2017. All campaigns should get best-in-class digital help.

    Let's bridge the gap between tech & politics - and start winning again.

    Q: Are the fireside chats in person or online?

    A: A bit of both. The virtual fireside chats will be hosted as a private online video-chat. Only backers will receive a unique link to access the fireside chat(s) they sign-up for, and will have a chance to submit questions both ahead of time and during the chat through a moderator.

    The Chamath/McFaul/Ghonim chat is in-person in the Bay Area.
