"Tech for Campaigns, a San Francisco nonprofit that focuses on state legislative elections, deployed several thousand Silicon Valley volunteers across America. They won all the Texas legislative races they targeted (eight flipped, and one defended), a big validation of their tech meets down-ballot candidate strategy. "

"[O]nline advertising by political campaigns is still largely an afterthought, according to a new report by Tech for Campaigns, a group of technology workers who volunteer to help Democratic candidates with digital outreach."

"Tech for Campaigns [is] a 7,000-strong volunteer organisation that enables Silicon Valley employees to use their digital skills to help Democratic election candidates [...] The aim is to become a permanent digital arm for progressive and centrist campaigns, and give access to campaigns at any level to the people, technology and resources they need"
Kevin Roose and Sheera Frenkel, 7/13/18
"Tech for Campaigns has become a kind of Democratic Geek Squad — a national volunteer network consisting of more than 4,500 tech workers [...] These volunteers, who include engineers, marketers and data scientists, are matched with Democratic campaigns across the country to provide training on digital skills, such as how to promote themselves on social media, build their email lists and use data analytics to identify potential donors."

"Levin lacked access to both branding and technology. But with Tech For Campaigns, what would have been a slow campaign start became a fully-furnished introduction. By the end of March, the Levin campaign had raised over $280,000, almost three times his initial fundraising goal."

"TFC got involved with the Kansas special election around six weeks before the polls opened, and deployed a team of Silicon Valley-based experts to help boost engagement...Thompson’s Facebook and Twitter channels. Thompson’s Facebook page followers rose from 1,300 to over 10,000, and the average likes per post spiked from 20 to around 600."
