So you want to be a finance assistant?

Posted By Patrick Burgwinkle, Wednesday, October 5, 2011

In 2012, there are races up and down the ballot. President Obama will be leading a ticket that will include U.S. Senators, U.S. Representatives, Governors, state legislators, and municipal officials. What’s the one thing all of these campaigns have in common?

They all need to raise money.

If you’re looking for a job during the 2012 cycle right now, fundraising and finance is your best shot for joining a campaign. Fundraising is essential for building up any campaign organization. Campaigns need to raise money to hire staff, rent office space, and convince potential supporters that a candidate can seriously compete for the office they are seeking.

This is where NGP comes in. NGP’s fundraising and finance software is a staple of the modern Democratic campaign. It’s a powerful database that allows you to keep track of your donors, pledges, and donations.

Trying to run a modern campaign without finance software is tough. NGP’s software is some of the best on the market and knowing how to use it can help you get a job in campaign fundraising. Democratic GAIN will be offering a training on NGP next week. Come get to know one of the most powerful toolsets in progressive politics. Get the skills you need to be a Finance Assistant.

Raise Money and Win Races with Aristotle 360

Posted By Patrick Burgwinkle, Wednesday, September 28, 2011

Anyone who has worked on a campaign understands the important role money and fundraising play in winning races. That makes the tools you use to help run your finance operation critical to the success of your campaign. This is where Aristotle 360 comes in.

Democratic GAIN will be offering a training session on Aristotle’s 360 toolset. Come check it out and see what this software can do for your next finance operation.

Aristotle 360 will automatically format call sheets and allow you to sort them based on criteria you want – high dollar donors, residents of a certain town, occupation – and help your candidate raise money. 360 also allows you to search for donations any person has made to other candidates at the Federal and State level. That means if John Q. Donor usually gives you $500, but he gives more to other candidates, you’ll know to increase your ask and avoid leaving money on the table.

Looking to work on campaigns but concerned about your skills? Anyone completing this training will be GAIN Finance Assistant Certified on the Aristotle 360 tool. That’s a leg up when applying for that finance assistant position on a race using Aristotle’s software.

If you’re looking to jump on a race as a finance assistant in 2012 or want to expand your repertoire of skills, then you won’t want to miss this training.
