Thank you for joining us for the 2018 Election Series
Over the past year, we have come together as a Philanthropic community to discuss key issues facing the 2018 Elections together. This series provided a space for peer discussion around funding priorities, and connected grantmakers across a wide range of issue and strategic focuses. Thank you to our cosponsors and partners in helping to make this series happen!

- Over the next two weeks, send a message to your grantees asking them reach out to their audiences to encourage voting. A message template (see below, drafted by Bolder Advocacy) may be helpful to you in communicating with your grantees. Also included sample tweets that participants can use on social media.
- On or just before Election Day, use your own social media channels to encourage people to get out and vote. The same sample tweets can be sent by foundations. If you decide to customize the message and need advice, the team at Bolder Advocacy ( is happy to help.
