Lillian’s List Challenge!

When We Give Together, We WIN!

The committed women and men of the Charlotte Women’s March organization understand that to change the landscape of the North Carolina General Assembly, we must rally around outstanding candidates to donate, volunteer and get out the vote!

Exciting special election wins in recent months dramatically illustrate the power of grassroots organizing and collective giving.  Voters inspired by the quality of new progressive candidates are giving at unprecedented levels, and small dollar donations are adding up to big wins.

For over 20 years, Lillian’s List has excelled at recruiting, training and supporting progressive women in NC who champion reproductive freedom and equity for women.

In 2017, CWM Candidates and Votes Co-Chairs Heloise Merrill and Marsha Ford turned up the heat with a Matching Contribution Challenge to support Lillian’s List recruiting and training strategies.


Heloise and Marsha are back in action this year, with an exciting new contribution challenge—this time to support Lillian’s List 2018 candidates and campaigns. The challenge will run until the April 12 Campaign Kick Off event introducing the 2018 Lillian’s List Featured Candidates.  Here’s how you can get involved and maximize your support for these candidates:

  • The first $2000 from donors will be matched dollar for dollar by Heloise and Marsha, netting $4000 total for candidates
  • The next $4000 from donors will be matched 50 cents on the dollar, netting an additional $6,000
  • Please be as generous as you can, and take advantage of the CWM matching contribution challenge before April 12
  • Ignore the “ticket” request, simply choose the amount you want to give. There is an option near the bottom to give an amount not already listed.
  • Or, checks can be mailed to Lillian’s List, ATTN: Laura Tormey, 3117 Poplarwood Ct., Suite #130, Raleigh, NC 27604. Write “2018 CWM Matching Challenge” on the check.
  • All donors will become part of the Lillian’s List sisterhood and membership and receive ongoing communication about candidates in 2018.

When you CLICK HERE, you will be taken to the Lillian’s List website, and you can make a secure donation.  Again, ignore the ticket request and look below those options and insert the amount you wish to donate toward this CWM Matching Contribution Challenge.

Pam Hutson, Board Chair at Lillian’s List explains the multiple ways our collective giving provides winning resources for women candidates:

Thanks to successful past fundraising efforts, Lillian’s List has been able to recruit and train exceptional women candidates.  This year alone, we have identified 10 amazing candidates, with more to come. In addition to contributions for the Campaign Kick Off event, donors can make ongoing gifts directly to specific candidate campaigns via the Lillian’s List website.  With your help, we can support the successful campaigns of Lillian’s List candidates in NC General Assembly races. Thanks again to Heloise and Marsha for their generous support of women candidates in NC!
