Grassroots Raisers

Become a Grassroots Raiser

This is a truly grassroots campaign, supported by thousands of people just like you who believe in Heather and Delman’s vision for Maryland and are helping to spread it far and wide. Maryland’s public financing program matches every contribution up to $250, so we don’t need deep-pocketed donors to win – just motivated supporters like you willing to take on a fundraising goal.

Join Heather and Delman’s community of Grassroots Raisers, and you’ll be invited to exclusive campaign update conference calls and entered into contests to join Heather and Delman on the campaign trail.

STEP 2: Put your list together

Start with your close friends, family, neighbors, and colleagues. Create a document or spreadsheet listing all the names, contact information, and amount you want to ask of each person, and use that document to help keep track of your outreach.

STEP 3: Break down your goal

Don’t be daunted by a big raise goal for the June 24th primary election – by breaking it into manageable gifts and setting short-term milestones, you’ll be well on your way to success.

STEP 4: Get raising!

Make a personal appeal, tell them why you’re supporting Heather and Delman, and ask for a specific amount. Talk to your network face-to-face, over the phone, and electronically via email and social media.

If you have any questions about how to get started or along the way, you can reach Andrea on our team at or (301) 328-5841.
