TurnUp is a non-profit app that serves as a pipeline connecting youth and protesters to the polls. There are over 50 million youth under the age of 29 who make up 37% of the 2020 electorate.
This innovative platform is powered by a broad range of growing support including: more than 25 foundations and individuals donors, the prestigious Fast Forward tech non-profit accelerator, our esteemed advisory board, the over 50 progressive organizations and social media influencers we partner with, and our enthusiastic team of over 500 young people from over 400 college campuses. TurnUp launches in a couple of weeks with 10,000 pledged app users.
TurnUp will bring the surge of youth activists out to vote and to volunteer on critical 2020 campaigns. We are reversing the declining trend of youth voter registration which is only further exacerbated by colleges moving online; our platform is critical to turnout, register, and organize youth, especially in key states. TurnUp is the channel for dramatically increasing voter turnout among 18-29 year olds in time for the all-important 2020 elections.
Strengthened by the ~$100,000 we raised last year to build TurnUp, we have begun a new campaign to raise $1,000,000 to help our platform reach a critical mass of youth in key states. For every $2.50, we can get one young person out to vote and to connect with their fellow youth organizers.
We would be grateful for your support.
