What is the Club of 1,000?
The "Club of 1,000" is a distinction that's reserved for the highest-level donors to MPP, MPP Foundation, MPP's federal Political Action Committee, MPP's state PACs (such as in Vermont), and MPP's ballot initiative committees (such as in Alaska).
Other than being on MPP's board of directors, the "Club of 1,000" is the highest distinction that a dues-paying member can attain within the organization.
Qualifying for the "Club of 1,000" means that either (1) you've donated at least $1,000 in one lump sum in the last 365 days, or (2) you're currently donating at least $100 per month on your credit card.*

There are four ways to give:
