Two of our very special members, Lee Mercer and Laurie Chadwick have offered to MATCH donations to MCDCC up to $1,000!

How do I make a donation to be matched, you ask. There are TWO easy ways.

  1. Click on our DONATE NOW link.
  2. If you are purchasing Biden/Harris yard signs and campaign stickers then use our DEM STORE link. There you will be able to add a donation to your purchases.

Lee and Laurie are matching up to $1,000 so please make your matched donation NOW.

If you too would like to offer a MATCH CHALLENGE, please contact our fundraising committee and we'll help you through the process.

Why are match challenges important? During this election cycle MCDCC members have approved more than $10,000 in expenses to support local candidates as well as our President and Vice President candidates. Your generous donations NOW ensures we have the resources to support our Neighborhood Leader Program and Get-Out-The-Vote activities throughout the election cycle as well as stabilizing the organization's future.
