Rally.org Partners with Netroots Nation Raise the Future Contest for Activists

In an era of Super PACs and unlimited corporate giving, online fundraising platform Rally.org invites activists around the country to enter their next-generation contest, Raise the Future.

In an era of Super PACs and unlimited corporate giving, online fundraising platform Rally.org invites activists around the country to enter their next-generation contest, Raise the Future.

Ambitious, tech-savvy participants will fundraise for a progressive cause for the chance to win a VIP all-access pass to 2012 Netroots Nation, an annual conference on technology and politics, held on June 7th-10th in Providence, RI.

Participants will connect with a group of progressive change- makers who are striving to make a difference in the political system and help them raise the funds they need to change the future.

Contestants can chose to become either a "fan fundraiser" for one of the featured partner causes OR fundraise for their own progressive cause they are passionate about.

Partner causes include:

Elizabeth Warren for Massachusetts

National Wildlife Federation Action Fund https://online.nwf.org/site/SPageNavigator/ActionCenter

NARAL Pro- Choice America

Washington United for Marriage

Over the course of 4 weeks, activists will use Rally.org's powerful, yet easy-to- use, online fundraising tools to raise awareness, dollars, and supporters for their cause. With Rally.org's platform, contestants will share multi-media stories in creative ways about why their cause matters, and reach out to donors and like- minded supporters through Facebook, Twitter, and email.

At the close of the contest on May 2nd, twenty finalists (two for each partner cause and eight individual causes) will be selected based on the number of individual donors (not dollar amount raised.) A panel of judges, that includes Tom Serres (CEO, Rally.org) and Raven Brooks (Executive Director, Netroots Nation), Leaders), and Christine Pelosi (Author, Campaign Boot Camp: Basic Training for Future Leaders) will then select ten winners based on their content creativity and innovation of fundraising efforts using the Rally.org platform.

The Raise the Future Fellowship prize includes an all access VIP pass to 2012 Netroots Nation Conference, hotel accommodations, a private reception with political-tech influencers hosted by Rally.org, and media recognition in press releases to journalists and bloggers.
