The Democracy Alliance, founded in 2005, is the largest network of donors dedicated to building the progressive movement in the United States. We play a leading role in fostering the infrastructure necessary to advance a progressive agenda for America. We invest in every aspect of progressive power-building – from policymaking to organizing grassroots communities to winning state and national issue and electoral campaigns. We address the most pressing challenges of our day through investments in three connected areas: a just democracy, a fair economy and an environmentally sustainable future.
Over the past 10 years, the Democracy Alliance has helped to raise significant resources to promote progressive ideas, impact media coverage, develop new leadership, create sophisticated civic engagement strategies and engage young people and communities of color. In our collaborative giving strategy, an informed and engaged body of donors comes together to aggregate resources for focused investment, for which we have marshaled as much as $60 million per year.

The need for a more powerful and cohesive progressive community has never been greater. Over the last three election cycles, conservatives have made unprecedented investments to create a wave of regressive policies and political leaders.
Building on our record of success in helping progressive organizations grow and connect, our current investment strategy expands our work by focusing on sustained state-level grassroots organizing and elevating the leadership and capacity of communities in the New American Majority – particularly people of color, women, and millennials. When these efforts are well-resourced and coordinated, year-in and year-out, progressives win.
