MVP is a best-in-class advising platform connecting progressive
donors to the most effective and promising grassroots organizations
in the country working at the intersection of movements, community
organizing, and elections. We aim to increase investment in
frontline organizations led by the most impacted communities to
increase turnout among the progressive base, build long-term
political power, and ultimately to transform our country at the
local, state, and national levels. In the 2020 cycle, MVP
successfully moved tens of millions of dollars to over 600 local
groups across the country, focused in the most critical states.
We are organizers, and the heart of our work is organizing
donors through MVP to support local groups in order to build,
sustain, and amplify their impact. We work in service of local
groups, and we try to be aware at all times of the power dynamics
of being a funder and to be careful about incentivizing actions
that could alter an organization’s own priorities; we work hard not
to impose on our partners. We are also striving to continuously
scrutinize and dismantle the ways we manifest and reproduce white
supremacy culture both internally and externally.
We focus on building from our assets, and taking a positive
approach to growth and change that helps groups and donors to feel
comfortable being vulnerable about their areas of improvement. We
believe in a non-competitive, non-divisive, whole ecosystem
approach; we are always seeking opportunities to support and
encourage collaboration among groups and donors.
