To create a growing pool of donors in support of women candidates running for President, Senate, and governorships with the goal of increasing the number of women in elected office.
Electing Women Bay Area is a community of like-minded donors who come together in support of Democratic women running for President, US Senate, and governorships. We have giving circles in San Francisco, Silicon Valley, the East Bay, and Wine Country.
Our goal is to support women candidates while creating intention and community around individual political giving. Members gather regularly to meet with women candidates – incumbents and non-incumbents – in small, intimate settings to discuss politics and policy and to exchange ideas.
As it currently stands, women make up 27 percent of Congress and 18 percent of governorships. With Vice President Kamala Harris’s entrance to the White House and departure from the Senate, there are only three women of color and no Black women in the Senate. There has never been a Black woman governor in US history. Clearly we have a lot of work to do, and we’re dedicated to improving these statistics.
EWBA is a part of the Electing Women Alliance, a national network of giving circles in cities around the country, including Austin, Boston, Chicago, DC, Denver, East Bay, Los Angeles, New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Santa Fe, Seattle, Silicon Valley, Sonoma, St. Louis, and Vail.
