Phone-a-Friend for RPAC Program & GrantI
Phone-a-Friend for RPAC leverages the power of member-to-member outreach to contact non-investing members, educate them about RPAC and ask for an investment.
Phone banks are one-day events hosted by state and local associations to help meet RPAC fundraising and participation goals. Volunteers gather and call potential investors, asking for a RPAC investment. Logging into a unique website that contains a customized call queue built by association staff, volunteers can take credit card investments, email the investment link to those who wish to invest later and send thank-you notes.
