Why is ActBlue a nonprofit?
We’re a nonprofit for a few different reasons! First, we are a mission-driven organization. ActBlue’s mission is to build tech and infrastructure for Democratic campaigns, progressive-aligned causes, and people trying to make an impact in order to fuel long-term change. We envision a democracy where everyone looking to make progressive people-powered change can easily and effectively deploy their resources, energy, and creativity to shape our country and futures.
In addition, being a nonprofit allows us to focus on building the best tools for everyone we work with, rather than concentrating on bringing in the most revenue. That means that with ActBlue, a first-time city council candidate has access to the very same tools as a presidential contender, and more people in more places can launch and run competitive campaigns!
