Electing Women Bay Area is a local giving group of the Electing Women Alliance that supports Democratic women running for US Senate, Governor, Vice President, and President. We are building local communities of informed, educated donors across the Bay Area, with groups in San Francisco, Silicon Valley, the East Bay, Wine Country, and Marin.
Members of Electing Women Bay Area make a $5,000 commitment per year to support women candidates. That includes a joining fee of $1,000 to the EWBA political action committee (PAC) to support our operations. Members then make four $1,000 donations directly to candidates over the course of a year.
We also welcome Steering Committee Members, who make a $5,000 contribution to our EWBA PAC in addition to their direct candidate donations. Steering Committee members meet quarterly to discuss candidate support, operations, and other strategic planning.
EWBA hosts 10 to 12 candidates per year at multiple events across the regions, so members have a choice about who to support. Prior to each event, the EWBA team briefs all members on the background of the candidate, overview of the race, and other relevant details. We believe it is critical for members to feel informed about the candidates they consider for support.
In addition to our candidate events, EWBA members are invited to join monthly national EWA Zooms, can attend national EWA events, and receive the monthly EWA newsletter. We also host gatherings from time to time for members of the giving circle to connect informally in other ways.
