Lisa leads MVP’s fundraising partnerships program, working with organizations, like Flip the Vote and Sister District, who come to MVP seeking a customized selection of grassroots swing-state groups for which they can fundraise. She also advises a portfolio of individual donors around their political giving. Lisa is most excited about building the long-term donor organizing movement needed to permanently reclaim all the ground we have ceded to the Right.
