Support Indivisible AVL by May 31 and Double Your Impact

Our May Match Fundraising Challenge is back!

Thanks to a special fundraising partnership with the national Indivisible Project, all funds we raise from now through May 31 will be matched dollar for dollar up to $500 total.

As a small volunteer-run nonprofit, we depend on donations to keep the wheels turning on our ongoing advocacy work and voter outreach.

2020 was amazing, but more work lies ahead

Last year over 160 Indivisible AVL volunteers pulled off an amazing year-long 2020 Voter Outreach & Engagement Campaign, reaching over 4,400 sporadic voters – even in the midst of a pandemic.

Voter outreach and engagement will be even more important this year as we gear up for 2022. The backlash of misinformation and voter suppression just in the past few months means, quite simply, that we can’t let up.

Building on the success of last year’s voter registration and education projects, we plan to expand our voter outreach efforts, especially partnering with Black communities and younger voters.

Your gift of $10, $25, or or more (or less!) will help us reach our goal

When you make a donation during our May Matching Challenge, your gift will help cover the costs of running an organization — such as website hosting, software licenses, email distribution, virtual meetings — as well as expenses associated with voter outreach. From texting platforms and dialer tech to educational handouts and event supplies, voter outreach and engagement takes time AND money.

So please chip in $5, $25, or more during May, and your donation will be matched!

Especially now, even a small donation makes a big difference.

PLEASE DONATE TODAY!

You can make a secure donation online at bit.ly/may-match-2021.

Now is the time to support Indivisible AVL as we gear up for the work ahead. Please consider making a contribution today to support our work.

Thank you for your support!
