Why Your Donation Matters

About the Puerto Rican Voter Fund:

  • The easiest “one click” way to donate to local Puerto Rican organizations  – who are fighting for our families on the Island and in the diaspora – as well as leading campaigns to get Puerto Ricans out to the polls in record numbers!
  • 100% of funds go directly or are regranted directly to local groups.
  • Make a Catalytic Difference – These are locally-rooted, small-to-medium sized organizations where your dollars can make a game-changing difference.
  • Curated with help from – This fund is curated by Puerto Rican Voter Project Director Zulema Rodriguez who consulted with dozens of local and national organizers in developing this list – still a work in progress – with a focus on MVP’s priority states. Feel free to email us at [email protected] to make additional suggestions of groups to include.
  • Build long-term infrastructure and leadership for change – The Puerto Rican Voter Project invests in groups that are locally rooted and driving change not just for one election, but year after year. We fund organizations and local leaders that Get Out the Vote in 2018 and then immediately get to work on 2019 and 2020, not one-off campaigns that come and go each cycle.
