Launched in August of 2016, The Collective PAC has helped 55 candidates win general elections at the local, state and federal level thus far. Through our coordinated PAC, independent expenditure only committee, 501c3 and 501c4 arms, we have raised and bundled over $10,000,000 from over 57,000 individual contributions. We’ve given and bundled over $1,000,000 directly to to endorsed candidates’ campaigns, spent over $3 million on paid advertising and get out the vote efforts to help them win and regranted $3 million to local, grassroots organizations. In addition, we’ve launched the first-of-its-kind Black Campaign School training for candidates and campaign operatives from around the country, and we host The Black Political Power Summit every year to update the nation on black political representation. With over 200,000 email subscribers, over 25,000 donors and various mentions and features in The New York Times, Washington Post, Buzzfeed and NBC News, The Collective has grown to be the largest and most prominent organization focused on helping elect African American candidates to public office on the local, state and federal level.
