Help build a new generation of
thoughtful political leaders

with a tax-deductible gift today

You know someone who would make you proud and confident as your representative in office. Your donation helps them run successfully and govern effectively.

In America, running to serve your community in elected office should not be a mysterious process and best practices for governing should not be inaccessible.  We can be represented by thoughtful leaders if we empower them with the knowledge and skills they need to succeed. 

Your impact scales: Donating to Empowered To Run enables us to develop more online courses, guidance, and tools and get them out to more candidates.  We “build once, reuse many”, which means your donation continues to have impact long after it is first invested. We also work closely with knowledge partners and candidate community partners, which means your donation helps an ecosystem of nonprofit organizations, not just one. 

Your employer might double your impact: Check with your employer to see if it will match your donation to Empowered To Run. (You can try researching here or here.)
