  • Update - Camp Wellstone: Online

    I wanted to give you an update on Camp Wellstone: Online.

    Earlier this month, we launched our new online learning program, and over the past two weeks over 130 people from 24 states (and Canada!) have joined us for our online classroom on running, and winning, as a progressive candidate.

    Camp Wellstone: Online is one of the most important new initiatives we’ve started this year. And we could only launch it because of support from donors like you..

  • So, what’s the Charities Review Council?

    For over a decade at Wellstone, we’ve dedicated ourselves to use every penny, of every donation, as effectively as possible. Our budget is smart, ambitious, and lean. Put another way? We’re small on overhead, big on results.

    And now we have a shiny new seal to prove it.

    Meeting the Charities Review Council’s Accountability Standards means that we’re a top-tier nonprofit that adheres to industry leading best practices. We invest your donations wisely, ever focused on results, always going above and beyond to be open and transparent about how your dollar is being spent.
