Politico Morning Score: Donors Do Sundance
Politico – January 24, 2020
DONORS DO SUNDANCE — The female-led donor network Way to Win, George Soros’ Open Society Foundation and the advocacy group Color of Change are hosting a discussion on activism and art on Saturday night at the Sundance Film Festival, Maggie writes in. The event is an effort to engage with both filmmakers and wealthy attendees, said Tory Gavito, president of Way to Win. “Sundance is a coming together of power players from artists to donors, and we want to make sure we’re talking to everybody across that collective. It really is going to take all of us to win in 2020,” said Gavito.
Way to Win is growing fast: The donor group that was founded during the midterms spent $25 million in 2019 alone, Gavito said, and is aiming to raise a bigger sum heading into 2020. Way to Win was successful in 50 of the 74 races it targeted in 2019, which were in battleground states including Arizona and Pennsylvania, according to the group.
