Donate to the New York City candidates you support so they can run effective campaigns throughout the city.
Your donation allows candidates to hire staff, create campaign materials, and reach more voters in your community. Your contribution goes even farther when you support candidates who participate in the City’s matching funds program. Donations from City residents to participating candidates can be matched 8-to-1. That means when you contribute $10, the candidate receives $90. Learn more about the matching funds program.
This program helps ensure that campaigns are funded by small dollar donations from New Yorkers, not by special interests. It also means that candidates who aren't wealthy but have strong community support can afford to run, creating a more diverse and representative government. In New York City’s 2021 election, over 83% of local candidates said that matching funds were key to their ability to run for office.
