I want to do more than donate. Can I volunteer with MVP or MVP partner organizations?

In short: Yes!

Option 1: Get Involved with MVP

At MVP, donors are not only funding this work but also our partners in this work.

Just as our local partners organize their communities, you can organize your networks to give through MVP to support the work on the ground.

Here’s the idea:

  • Local trusted messengers are our best shot at mobilizing swing state voters.
  • As donors, often the best use of our time is to rally our networks to help fund the frontline organizers.
  • No matter where you are, you are likely connected to more untapped power in your network than you realize.

We are building a movement of donors funding grassroots organizing — and we invite you to join us.

Option 2: Volunteer with Seed the Vote

Seed the Vote (STV) is an ally (and grantee) of MVP which connects volunteers nationwide with local groups mobilizing voters in swing states. And, most of STV’s local partners are MVP grantees!

Why MVP Recommends Seed the Vote
  • STV partners with locally rooted groups. STV works with grassroots groups that are of, for, and led by those most impacted by injustice, organizing year-round to win elections in the short term and build power over the long term.
  • STV works with groups that can use non-local volunteers. Many grassroots organizations working in marginalized communities can’t easily absorb or make good use of outside volunteers. STV has identified the groups that can.
  • STV follows and amplifies local groups’ strategy. STV routes volunteers directly to its local partners on the ground, and also organizes its own remote phonebanks, using partners’ voter lists, scripts, and training materials.
  • When you volunteer with STV, you are furthering MVP’s mission. When you volunteer at the direction of and in collaboration with local groups, the voters you reach and the messages you carry support and leverage the groups’ work  — which carries impact that goes well beyond that of candidate campaigns.
