We wanted to make sure you saw yesterday's email. So far, 218 people from Utah have donated in December, but at this point last month, that number was 393.
With the midterm elections less than a year away, it's never been more important that we close this gap. Chip in $7 or whatever you can to the DNC to help Democratic candidates from school board to Senate win nationwide.
Every dollar we receive from grassroots donors goes immediately toward powering our on-the-ground organizing efforts, voter protection programs, and data and tech infrastructure -- all of which will be crucial heading into next year.
We can't do this without you. Thanks for being a part of this team.

My name is Nick, and I'm the deputy director of our email and SMS programs here at the DNC. I've been doing a lot of digging into our donor data to make sure we're staying on track to hit our goals and build the strongest Democratic Party in history.
I wasn't planning on sending this email, but I wanted to share with you an update on our progress because there was one number that caught my eye.
So far in December, we've received 218 donations from Utah, and we're grateful for each and every one of them.
But the bad news is that at this point last month, we had already received 393 contributions. That's a pretty sizable gap -- and we need to close it as soon as possible. So, I'm asking you directly:
Can you chip in $7 to the DNC today to help our team catch up to last month and continue powering our work to elect Democrats up and down the ballot? We can't afford to go into the upcoming midterm elections behind on our goals.
2022 is only a few weeks away, and I know this team is as committed as ever to making sure we retain our Democratic majorities. But holding onto Congress is not guaranteed. It's going to take a huge groundswell of grassroots energy to overcome everything the Republicans will inevitably throw our way.
Grassroots donations make up a majority of the DNC's revenue, and they go directly into critical investments in organizing, voter protection, and our state parties to make sure Democrats everywhere have the resources they need to fight back and win.
That's why emails like this are so important. If you can, will you make a $7 donation to the DNC to fund our efforts electing Democrats across the country?
Thanks so much,
Deputy Director of Email & SMS
Democratic National Committee
