At the California Donor Table, we have raised over $3 million in resources, and directed a total of over $3.5 million to our partner organizations on the ground who are working hard to educate voters and help beat the recall efforts. These contributions collectively make CDT’s network of donors among the top 10 donors to the recall overall! However, we are still trying to fill a roughly $700,000 gap in resources to directly support community-based organizations’ c4 voter engagement efforts aimed at defeating the recall. Speak to us before giving so we can tell you about the reporting requirements.

Who is behind the recall? SPOILER: Far-right. White supremacists. Conservative fundraising arms. Big tech venture capitalists. Real estate investors. And a whole lot of Republican donors.
