Together PAC and DGA

Creating Momentum for the Democratic Governors Association

Reaching New Audiences

“WEM worked with Together PAC (TPAC) and the Democratic Governors Association (DGA) to cultivate and support local donors and serve as a liaison on policy events. The DGA provides advice in policy areas and supports Democratic candidates running for governor. WEM approached TPAC with the idea for this collaboration, and it quickly became a win-win scenario. Kim did an excellent job on tight deadlines, and is resourceful, professional and dogged in her pursuit of the goal. She ably worked with stakeholders to build events, conduct outreach, coordinate onsite logistics, and all necessary follow up. Her work for TPAC and the DGA was impressive and tremendously valuable.”
– Alex Goldstein, (former) Executive Director, TogetherPAC, 

In 2012, WEM was asked to develop a Massachusetts-based fundraising program for the Together PAC, with the goal of supporting the Democratic Governor’s Association.

Working with both the Together PAC and the DGA, WEM produced a series of private events attended by New England governors and featuring Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick. These events included breakfasts, luncheons and dinner events in Boston and a brunch on Nantucket. In addition to raising over $500,000 for the DGA, WEM fostered membership in the DGA and acted as a liaison to New England donors.

To ensure the success of the fundraisers, WEM created event briefs and budgets, scouted and secured locations, recruited host committees and handled logistics for all of these events. We also managed every detail—from invitations to logistics, catering, travel and support on site and acted as a local point person for DGA members.

These events helped the PAC quickly meet its ambitious fundraising objectives. We also developed and cultivated an elite group of engaged and informed business leaders and corporate sponsors for the future.
