The Collective 100 is the young professional, under 40, fundraising arm of The Collective PAC. This group has grown out of our grassroots fundraising efforts, building on the success of many of our lead organizers and hosts. Our goal is to maintain the passion and enthusiasm of Millennials and channel that excitement into creating a sound and stable organization that will pave the way for building Black political power for decades to come.
The primary focus of the Collective 100 is to raise money in support of The Collective PAC and its endorsed candidates. Money raised will go directly to recruiting, training and funding Black candidates on the local, state and federal level. In addition, The Collective is working to train and support individuals interested in becoming premier staffers on these campaigns.
We also aim to engage, empower, and organize Millennials in our effort to help build a fundraising infrastructure for the next Black President so that when he or she decides to run for president, they will have a millennial led fundraising infrastructure, resources, and supporters ready to lead and serve.
As the Collective 100 grows, you will be its leaders, taking an active role in harnessing the energy of Millennials across the country by cultivating the next generation of political fundraisers. Your leadership and commitment to this effort, and The Collective PAC, will play an integral part in the Collective 100’s long-term stability. Your ideas, experience, and outreach will be an inspiration to others as we grow our membership across the country.

- Support The Collective’s endorsed slate of candidates via social media, email and word of mouth to your local, regional and national networks
- Support on the ground civic engagement programs and trainings hosted in your city/region
