It’s Olivia, Finance Director for Ayanna Pressley’s campaign.
It’s been a few days since I’ve reached out to you, but I was just reviewing our fundraising numbers for the month so far, and we have a few challenges we’re facing right now:
1) February is a short month. With only 28 days to fundraise this month, we effectively have 10% less time to raise the resources we need to keep up with campaign costs.
2) We were anticipating a fundraising slow down after the election in November, but we’re still a bit short of our goals. Because this is a grassroots campaign, we believe in being transparent with our supporters.
Even though our fundraising has slowed down, Ayanna’s work for progress hasn’t skipped a beat, so your contributions are more important than ever to keep Ayanna focused on organizing, advocating, and legislating for real change.
Our average contribution so far this year is $22.48 – we’re proud of that number because it proves this is a grassroots campaign.
Thank you so much for your support,
