Donation Tiers

FIRST, we leverage our limited budget several times over with pro bono support from law firms, accountants, and other professionals – allowing our small staff and hands-on Board of Directors to tackle a broad range of activities that improve the quality of life in the National Capital Area.

SECOND, we are a local organization, working exclusively on the biggest public policy problems facing DC – from voting rights to health care to environmental concerns to jobs and housing and more.

THIRD, we are independent, non-partisan and objective. We do not come to any issue with an agenda or predetermined viewpoint and we take a position on an issue only after thoroughly researching it from all sides with the goal of finding the best possible solutions for where we live and work. We never accept government funding.

FOURTH, while we are independent, we connect our projects to wider coalitions. Working in coalition makes our research and consultation more efficient while growing allies for our advocacy.

FINALLY, DC Appleseed gets results. We are efficient, effective advocates. We build support and consensus for the solutions we propose by working closely with government leaders and community stakeholders during our investigations and as we formulate our positions. This collaborative approach builds broad support for implementing recommended changes. DC Appleseed doesn’t simply call for positive change, we help make change happen.
