How This Works

Take a look at how volunteers and campaigns can use Pitch In to connect.

Why Pitch In?

We know it’s critically important to elect more Democrats and progressive leaders on the local level. But it’s often those small, local races that have the hardest time getting off the ground. We believe that a lot of the resources and help our candidates need to win can be provided on a volunteer basis from skilled people ready to donate their time.

The beauty of this system is that geography isn’t important. We believe that voter contact is most effective within communities. But web design and outreach, data modeling and targeting can be done by anyone with the skills, anywhere they are.

Free up your campaign to do the hard and important work on the ground. We’ll help you connect with tech do-gooders to do the rest.

Who are we?

We are a group of friends, progressive organizers and start-up techies passionate about making activism accessible for everyone.

Use Pitch In to help your next campaign

“We had to translate our website to Spanish, so that our voters could find the information they need. It was important, but other priorities kept taking up my time. Pitch In stepped up and found Ben, and organizer with some tech knowledge, to help up with the task. We got it set up very quickly, and now Spanish language voters have access to our campaign. I recommend Pitch In for any campaign manager who isn't able to get to all those important items on their to-do list.”
