We call our monthly members Rockstars because:
- They allow us to budget for the long-term. In order to change the discussion, we need to be in business year-round. That means full-time offices, full-time volunteers, databases and other overhead costs. These things cost money — we can’t budget for ’em without steady cash-flow.
- It’s a way for people of ordinary means to give extraordinary gifts. Most of us can’t give a gift of $100 at any one time, but we can give $10 a month.
- Grassroots money means grassroots politics. We’ve always believed that democracy can only truly be transformed through the power of the grassroots — volunteers and small donors coming together to work for change.
