What does your campaign’s budget look like?Here is a rough breakdown of spending our advisors usually recommend to campaigns:
Program: 85% Includes:
- Voter contact (mailers, ads, walk literature, GOTV door hangers)
Overhead: 10% Includes:
- Paid staff + their benefits
- Office rental
- Tech (computers, phone, website/domain name, email program costs, list building)
Fundraising: 5% Includes:
- Programs like ActBlue and NGP Van
- Food and any event costs at fundraisers
- Mailings that ask people for money
- Stamps for thank you notes to donors
How does your budget compare?
