The Membership Drive team brings a unique combination of experience and insight to our work. We’ve built and managed some of the largest face-to-face fundraising programs in the United States, consulted for global and local grassroots fundraising programs from Bangkok to Boston, and run some of the largest non-profits and grassroots campaigns in the United States. We provide canvass management as well as grassroots fundraising and campaign advisory services.
Social change happens when people join together to achieve a shared purpose.
Membership Drive was founded to unite people in communities with progressive organizations fighting for social and economic justice and a healthy environment. We’re a fully accredited canvassing organization founded by people whose entire lives have been focused on fundraising and organizing to support the causes we love.
Membership Drive grows the budgets and political power of non-profits simply, safely, and securely with our transformative platform. Our special sauce: exclusive technology to maximize donor value, expertise in monthly and recurring donors, and our position at the heart of innovation as the leader of the Face-to-Face Fundraising Roundtable.
Membership Drive is on the cutting-edge of new technology and processes to recruit and maximize the value of monthly and recurring donors.
Many canvassing partners charge a confusing combination of fees, and some even charge $300 per monthly donor. This approach puts your organization at risk of losing money for years before you can determine when, or if, you have generated any resources for your mission.
In contrast, Membership Drive ensures that more money goes into your programs, without the excessive cost.
Membership Drive’s platform grows your lists — email, text message, volunteer, and more — while generating petition signatures and letters. And coming soon: voter registration.
Our Platform generates 100% unrestricted 501(c)(4) income, and can be funded in part by 501(c)(3) funds due to its substantial educational component.
Membership Drive is your solution for going big, quickly.
Our founding team built the Greenpeace U.S. canvass into the largest in-house operation in the United States — and the second-largest in the world — in three years. We’ll apply our hard-earned expertise to helping you go big. Today.
