The Kentucky Young Democrats Launch Kentucky Young@Heart Program
The Kentucky Young Democrats recently launched our Kentucky Young@Heart Democrats program. This fundraising program targets Democrats of all ages. Participants enroll in the program by setting up a monthly donation of five or ten dollars. While proceeds will benefit the entire Kentucky Young Dems organization, what is most exciting about the program is the chapter fund sharing aspect! Thirty percent (30%) of every donation is returned to the chapter in the donor’s home county. This is a great incentive for our KYD chapters to promote Young@Heart and will hopefully be a useful tool in growing and sustaining active local chapters.
Donors receive more than just the title of a Young@Heart Democrat! Young@Heart Democrats receive regular email updates about statewide YD activities, a Kentucky Young Democrats t-shirt, recognition on numerous KYD publications, and are invited to the social and campaigning events of local chapters. Not only does this program help finance the projects of Kentucky Young Democrats, it assists in strengthening ties between active KYD and other activists in the Kentucky Democratic Party. The Kentucky Young Democrats recognize that a key to our long term success of both our organization and our party is a committed focus to party building through developing important relationships between KYD members and Democrats across the Commonwealth.
This summer, the Kentucky Young Dems have been traveling across Kentucky and speaking to our own communities about Young@Heart. We have been extremely well-received at many Democratic Womens’ Clubs and County Democratic Party meetings.
