I’m writing to you today to respectfully ask you to begin a monthly donation to the Democratic Party. Many folks on this team already realize the immense impact that sustaining contributions have on our party, so if you’re one of them, I hope you’ll click here to start your monthly gift. But if you’re reading this and wondering “why now?” please lend me a moment to explain why a sustaining donation will matter so much to our party in the months to come:
I’ve often said that the Democratic Party’s two goals this cycle were to defeat Trump and to defeat Trumpism. Together, this team beat the odds and won more than the 270 electoral votes needed to defeat Trump, which on its own is an incredible accomplishment worth celebrating.
But it is clear that defeating Trumpism is a longer-term challenge.
There are still daunting fights ahead as we begin to rebuild our country back better — and to undo the damage that’s still being done by those who’d sooner rip our democracy to shreds than concede with dignity. We now have a mountain to climb in Georgia in order to win two Senate runoffs and end Mitch McConnell’s crushing grip on the Senate, and there’s no question that the fights that still lie ahead will demand our attention, organizing, and financial resources. But most importantly of all, they’ll need you, ajay.
That is why I am asking you, if your budget allows, to commit to staying in this fight by starting a modest monthly donation to the Democratic Party. Monthly donations are what will ultimately sustain our party for the long haul and make sure we’re prepared for the many tough battles still ahead. I hope you’ll consider making your support for the DNC a long-term part of your investment in electing a government that works for all of us.
If you can, please consider starting a monthly contribution to the DNC today so we can continue building the strength and long-term power of the Democratic Party.
Just look at all that early, strategic investments in our party delivered over these past four years, ajay: We started 2017 with just 15 governors’ seats. We now have 24. We didn’t have the House of Representatives, and we now hold the House majority. These wins and others like them were only possible because we invested early and strategically in all 50 state parties and put grassroots organizers on the ground earlier in a presidential cycle than ever before.
Now, we are on the cusp of flipping the Senate blue — but winning these two Senate runoffs in Georgia will take on-the-ground organizing, expanding our Democratic base of support, and fighting for every vote in every ZIP code. By starting a monthly contribution to our party, of any amount you can afford, you’ll play an important role in making sure we can afford to do all of that and more to elect Democrats to crucial seats up and down the ticket.
Will you start a monthly contribution to the Democratic Party today to help power this important work for the months and years ahead? Even a small monthly gift will make a big impact — especially now as we head into Georgia’s Senate runoffs.
Thank you for all that you’ve done for our party, and all that you’ll continue to do. Folks like you are why I’m so proud to chair our party.

P.S. If you’re anything like me, these past few days have brought feelings of relief, joy, and hope — as well the unshakable notion that our work is not finished so long as Trump’s dangerous brand of politics has a home in the GOP. I hope you’ll take some well-deserved time to celebrate this historic victory with your loved ones, then get back in the ring by committing to a modest sustaining donation to the DNC so we can build the strength of our party for years to come.
