Winning campaigns to solve America’s problems ultimately depends on our ability to organize people: to bring people together to call for change in one voice. While digital is a powerful tool in the organizing toolbox, an email is no match for a personal phone call from a constituent. Nor does a web signup form deliver the same motivational power as an organizer calling a member or volunteer.
To help groups take advantage of telephone advocacy, Progressive Future Network launched our Calling for Progress grants program to back progressive non-profit organizations whose goals we support.
Through Calling for Progress, we combine the old-fashioned power of the telephone with up-to-date calling technology to reach hundreds of thousands of people each year, building the membership of social change organizations and amplifying their voices in the halls of power. In 2019, we donated over $300,000 in Calling for Progress grants.
