2022 was one of WCDP's busiest years to date! We fielded a lot of candidates, spoke to a lot of citizens, hosted a lot of functions, and worked with a lot of donors to promote democracy and equality in Williamson County, TN. From January through October, 2022, which was the majority of the 2022 campaign season, here is a summary of our donations:
Our total intake from donors was $28,257.60. Only 3% of these donations were above $500, putting WCDP firmly in the area of grass roots and small donors who are working together to effect change. 33% of our donations were between $100-$500, for a total of $14,893. And then all the rest of our donations -- the majority of our supporters -- donated less than $100 during January-October of 2022.
What happens to the money?
When you give to WCDP, you are helping campaign for and support democratic candidates who believe in equal rights, strong public schools, and healthcare for everyone. You are helping WCDP give back to the community, with donations to charities and other organizations also effecting change in our county. You are helping us spread the word that there is a thriving and enthusiastic network of liberal friends here in Tennessee, ready to welcome you and protect your voting rights and healthcare.
And we are growing! Won't you be part of our movement?

Giving Tuesday is coming up on November 29th. This national day of giving highlights non-profits working to make a difference in their communities and we hope you will consider supporting WCDP this year. In 2022 we recruited, trained and supported Democratic candidates who stood up for public education, infrastructure, and healthcare for all residents in their communities. We also understand that diversity makes our communities stronger and everyone deserves to feel safe and valued in their community. That is why we supported organizations like Franklin Pride, Wilco Iris, the African American Heritage Society, The Franklin Justice and Equity Coalition, the Williamson County Homeless Alliance, Graceworks Ministries and the Hard Bargain Association through donations of food, time, and event sponsorships.
Our organization is funded primarily by small donations and donors who are your neighbors and friends. We've set a goal of raising $2,000 to kickstart our efforts in 2023 to field candidates who care, register voters, and conduct outreach to better understand the needs of our community. Thanks to a generous donor who has pledged to match total donations up to $1,000, your gift will be doubled when you give today! We are grateful for your help in meeting our goal this Giving Tuesday.
