Please Support the Bedford Democrats!

Annual Fundraising Campaign

Once a year – and only once a year – the Bedford Democratic Party asks that you join in supporting us.

With your help, we pay our minimal administrative costs (mostly our P.O. box rental), we fund a few inexpensive local events (i.e. our Old Town Day presence and our Ice Cream Social), and then devote the remainder of our budget to supporting New Hampshire Democrats who share your values.  (The Bedford Democratic Party never supports candidates in a primary campaign. We only support New Hampshire Democrats in general elections.)

As we rapidly approach 2018, your donations will help us hold events and support candidates that promote and represent our shared, progressive values.

Click on the blue link to complete our membership form and to support us either by on-line contribution or by check.

FYI, our average donation is $60 but we’re delighted to have you with us for whatever is comfortable for you.

Thanks for being a loyal Bedford Dem!
