Our Mission

Our Mission

Electing Women Seattle gathers like-minded donors to support Democratic women running for public office across the country and in the state of Washington. We exist to both close the gender giving gap in politics and to break down barriers for women running – and winning – in public office.

Our goal is to build a committed network of donors to provide critical support for women candidates when they need it most. Members gather regularly to meet with candidates – incumbents and non-incumbents – in small, intimate settings to discuss politics and policy and to exchange ideas.

Our Work

Electing Women Seattle hosts women candidates for Vice President, US Senate, Governor, and competitive US House races in Washington. We are currently pleased to be supporting four women incumbents for the US Senate, four non-incumbent women running for Senate, and two women incumbents from Washington State for the US House of Representatives.

For the first time in 2024, we are also supporting the top Democratic women running in state legislative races in Washington.

Our Impact

EW Seattle is a part of the Electing Women Alliance, a national network of giving circles in cities around the country, including Austin, Boston, Chicago, Denver, Houston, Los Angeles, Nevada, New Mexico, New York, Philadelphia, San Antonio, Seattle, St. Louis, Vail, and Washington, DC.

EW Seattle has individually raised over $260,000 for women candidates since our founding in 2023 and Electing Women has collectively raised $28 million for women candidates since 2016.

Choose Your Candidates

We host 8 to 10 candidate events per year, so members have a choice about who to support. Prior to each event, the EWS 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. Our team is also always available for questions.

Electing Women Benefits

In addition to our candidate events, EWS 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.
