Conservatives have done this for 50 years and they have won. In the lead-up to 2016, they outspent us by 3x or $500 million. Now, over 50 percent of those under 50 years old in Congress are conservatives. We believe that in order to win the next 50 years, we must identify and foster both the donor leadership and candidate talent that will lead us to victory.

To support this work, we are also actively building a next-generation donor network that centers civic and political philanthropy in their giving strategy. Since we started in 2019, we have raised over $7.5 million and those who we have introduced to political giving have invested millions more in the movement. In the 2020 cycle, we proved our operational efficiency with over 97 percent of what we raised going directly to candidates and organizers who we supported.

The Next 50 is at the forefront of building a leadership pipeline of justice and equity-minded leaders that will counter conservatives’ massive 50-year investment in young leaders. Our work is guided by the insight of our Leadership Council, including members of Congress, Rep. Ruben Gallego, Rep. Lauren Underwood, and Rep. Chris Pappas, as well as Colorado Secretary of State Jena Griswold, CNN political commentator Bakari Sellers and more.
