the FM basics
Force Multiplier is an all-volunteer group based in the Boston area but with the magic of Zoom we've expanded all over the country. Proudly, 50% of our donors live outside Massachusetts. That's the power of relational networking!
Force Multiplier supports Democratic candidates but isn't part of the party.
Force Multiplier focuses entirely on fundraising.
We do, however, connect members of our community with volunteer opportunities for the candidates and groups we support.
Force Multiplier never touches the money.
All funds go directly to the candidates through Act Blue, a user-friendly donation processing platform. (Act Blue has a 3.95% credit card processing fee.) When payment is made by check, the contribution goes directly to the candidate or group being supported.
Force Multiplier has no staff + no office + has minimal self-funded expenses.
Force Multiplier doesn’t share its lists.
Those who contribute through us are added to our mailing list, which we do not share with any other groups. Act Blue reports donor information as required by the FEC to the candidates. Act Blue will offer you an opportunity to opt out of sharing your email with the campaigns and grassroots groups. You will not be added to their lists unless you opt in at the time of your donation.
We're honest + transparent.
