We Keep Growing

Building pathways to power everyone can access.

Guiding Principles


We have two goals at Campaign Greenhouse. At a lofty level, we want to help build a democracy where everyone (no matter what age, race, gender identity or expression, sexuality, physical ability, path to citizenship, education, employment, income, religion or lack thereof, parental status, relationship status, housing status, language spoken, et cetera), EVERYONE has access to the resources and support they need to run a successful campaign. We believe that knocking down roadblocks and making pathways to power more accessible is a critical part of a representative democracy!

At a more concrete level, we are focused on growing a monumental farm team of progressives who have the resources, experience and wisdom required to build a better America. Empowering a team of people to run great campaigns, and to run again and again. This is the way we change the balance of power – by making sure that across the country, no candidate goes unsupported and no seat goes uncontested.

Philosophy


Our Campaign Community is grounded in four core beliefs:

Lean into Loss

Winning is great and it’s the ultimate destination, but if we’re only running in campaigns where we think we can win, we’re missing some big opportunities. Here, winning isn’t the only goal. We’ll help you strategize about all the different ways your campaign can be successful and make a big impact, even if a win is improbable.

Just Start

Aim for completion, not perfection. There is no perfect time, no perfect candidate, no perfect message, no perfect audience. And striving for perfection in one area can hijack your time, treasure and talent away from real priorities. We’ll help you know the difference so you can set your goals, do your work, and run your race to the finish line.

You Are Enough

The electoral process is a tough enough job interview. Once you meet the legal criteria, piling on any outdated ideas about what kind of people are qualified or “electable” undermines too many potentially great candidates. You’ll get lots of opinions and advice about how to be better – good enough – to run. Whatever your story, wherever you’re coming from, we’ll help you be truthful, authentic and compelling. That’s a winning combination.

The View is Best on the Ground

Experts are important, but you are the person who is the most informed and invested in your race. We won’t pretend to know what we don’t know; our support focuses on campaign fundamentals that will unlock your unique strategic insights and empower you to run a race that’s the best fit for your goals, district and personality.
