Why should I donate to Blue Wave Napa Valley?
Many impassioned people share our goal of taking back Congress but are not necessarily in a position to offer their time to a campaign or activist group. They want to donate money but aren’t sure to whom or where they should donate.
Blue Wave Napa Valley offers a straightforward approach by providing a platform where supporters can make a one-time donation that will then be distributed amongst the selected candidates mostly like to win in their Districts.
How did Blue Wave Napa Valley choose which candidates to support?
In choosing our slate, we took direction from Congressman Thompson and from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC). Candidates Katie Hill, Harley Rouda and Mike Levin support the values we hold dear: those of inclusivity, diversity, equality, and integrity.
Is Blue Wave Napa Valley limited to residents of Napa Valley?
Absolutely not. While Blue Wave Napa Valley is focused on Napa Valley as a geographic region and the candidates we are supporting are from California, we welcome all donations. From Bethesda to Bakersfield and anywhere in between, the goal is the same: to win back the 24-seat seats needed to flip Congress from red to blue in the upcoming mid-term elections.
What kind of organization is Blue Wave Napa Valley?
Blue Wave Napa Valley is not a non-profit, PAC, or business entity of any kind. We are simply a group of concerned citizens who have come together to rally around a common cause and encourage our friends and neighbors to do the same. As such, we do not receive campaign funds - all donations are processed through an online fundraising platform called Crowdpac, which handles the receipt, reporting, and distribution of all donated funds.
What is Crowdpac?
Crowdpac is an innovative platform set up to facilitate crowdfunding for political campaigns by providing the proper record keeping and fund management procedures to assure that all donations are legally accepted and equitably distributed to our selected candidates. As a B Corp, Crowdpac has met the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability.
How does Crowdpac work?
When you click our Donate button, you will be redirected to Crowdpac, where you will make your donation and provide the information required for political contributions. You will then receive a receipt directly from Crowdpac who will distribute your donation to our designated candidates and create the required campaign compliance reports. Crowdpac does not sell, rent, or otherwise share your personal information with any third parties.
Is my donation tax-deductible?
Political donations are not deductible for Federal income tax purposes.
