Anthony Thigpenn: “We’ve been able to get allies. So as we put together a coalition of allies, we have different levels of involvement and if you want to be in the inner circle of strategies and decisions, then each organization will commit a certain amount of money. And it’s based on ability to pay. Larger organizations will pay more, they’ll put $5,000 in for the effort, smaller organizations will may a minimum amount, so that the ability to pay is not a barrier [….] And then we’ve been able to get some public charity foundations to support – who can support – our voter participation work also. They give us grants to do this work. So it’s a combination. Probably the most important piece of this is to the degree it’s integrated with our ongoing organizing, then the normal money we get from foundations or donors is applicable to this because it’s not something completely separate.”
