Donate to support 25 candidates who, with your help, will flip Virginia’s House of Delegates from red to blue on November 7. 

About Us. We, the fundraisers writing this appeal, are grassroots Virginia activists who rolled up our sleeves after Donald Trump’s election. Members of groups such as WofA, Indivisible Arlington, Network NoVA, Virginia Democracy Forward, and Blue NoVA. You can see our names on the list of contributors. United in our commitment to government that reflects neighbors helping neighbors. 

Why these seats. Of the 25 candidates, 17 are running in districts Donald Trump lost, 3 are Democratic incumbents in marginal districts, and 5 are challenging in “stretch” districts we can flip. If we hold our 3 and flip 17, Democrats will take a 51-49 majority.

Why contribute. These campaigns need literature, web hosting, office supplies, canvassing clipboards, rent for headquarters, and staff. Your donation makes the difference. Tom Perriello, VA Delegates, and candidates attended an event for this fundraiser to show support.

Why these elections matter to non-Virginians. Our state is a textbook case of gerrymandering. Democrats have won every statewide election since 2012, yet Virginia’s U.S. House delegation is 7-to-4 Republican. With redistricting ahead, victory will help ensure fair representation and dent the GOP’s hold on Congress.

Why these candidates. They are teachers, farmers, veterans, journalists, entrepreneurs. Their platforms include funding for education, transportation, health care and environment, and the defense of civil rights, civil liberties, and reproductive freedom.

Why Crowdpac. It is a free and open technology platform unaffiliated with any political party. Crowdpac sends all donations directly to the campaigns; donors pay credit card fees (3.75% plus 30 cents). Crowdpac is supported by tips – optional at checkout. Its campaigns include candidates,, and Arnold Schwarzenegger’s “Terminate Gerrymandering.”

Please give now! On behalf of our state and our nation, thank you.

What a night! What's next?

Dear Unite To Flip Virginia Blue Contributor:   

What a night!!!  We have raised over $27,000 and money is still coming in. More than 200 of us cheered our candidates as our master of ceremonies Rip Sullivan and keynote speaker Tom Perriello affirmed the stakes in November. Thank you so much for coming out to inspire our candidates and generate energy for the work ahead.   

The work is, of course, mostly theirs. They are the ones sacrificing time and energy from their families and jobs for the vision we share: a representative and Democratic House of Delegates that responds to the needs of our communities. Our contribution is less consuming: a bit out of our wallets, which we invite you to keep open by making regular contributions either through our Crowdpac site and/or directly to individual candidates to whom you feel drawn.   

We urge you to contribute your time as well. We ask you to join us for events and action during the next 15 weeks. Many of us will be canvassing for candidates in districts near and far. We are focusing on state and – with the daily outrages of the president and the GOP Congress – federal politics. Join us and other activists. Unite to Flip Virginia!

Please help us solve a puzzle!

Hi all! Thank you for your contribution to the united Virginia swing districts fundraiser! As it grows, we hope you'll please help us solve this puzzle.

Our venue and volunteer organizer would like to know how many people are attending in person, this coming Monday, 7-9 PM, at Clare & Don's Beach Shack, 130 N Washington St, Falls Church, VA.  The RSVP numbers don't match the donations. With your help, we can get close. Could you and your friends please RSVP if you haven't yet? At Eventbrite, on Facebook, or the Google Sheet

And if you feel moved to give again, fantastic! Donations gratefully accepted at  Your funds are sent to the campaigns, not outsiders, so the candidates get to decide what they need, whether it's yard signs, mailings, campaign help - or a TV ad! You can also bring your checkbook to the event in case a candidate there inspires you. 

Thank you! Together for the win - let's dig deep and flip VA!

If you match our largest donor ($100 for each swing district candidate in the slate), you'll get a special prize!

We hope to see you July 24, 7-9 PM, to celebrate our success at Clare & Don's Beach Shack - please bring friends, and RSVP if you haven't yet; instructions on the fundraiser page at With a big crowd already coming, it's going to be a fun time. Wear Hawaiian shirts if you dare.
