BENEFITING: BORGEN PROJECT
The Borgen Project believes that leaders of the most powerful nation on earth should be doing more to address global poverty. We’re the innovative, national campaign that is working to make poverty a focus of U.S. foreign policy.
In order to do this, the Borgen Project relies on donations to manage day-to-day expenses of operating a nation-wide advocacy group. Included in these daily operating expenses are things like web-hosting. Recently, the Borgen Project added the "action center" to their website, which allows all those who visit their site to e-mail their Congressional leaders about a number of different issues supported by the Borgen Project. Usage of this feature has been increasing steadily since it was introduced.
Thanks to donations, the Borgen Project hired a full time Political Coordinator. Since that hire, the Borgen Project was able to secure sponsors and co-sponsors for numerous important bills in both the House and Senate.
