The Accelerator Web platform is the most recommended and most utilized new media platform for Democratic campaigns and progressive organizations. Hundreds of Democratic candidates ranging from U.S. Senate to City Council use the platform to power their websites and online interactions.
Create multiple contribution and other forms-based pages (volunteer, email signup, event RSVP, petition, etc.) that have two-way integrations with both the NGP fundraising and compliance database and the VAN field software. Avoid wasting time and creating duplicate records inherent in having a new media data silo. Form-based pages can seamlessly feed submissions directly into both databases as a linked record (two steps better than new media silos), with the same coding that you use for offline activity, allowing for unified reporting and the most sophisticated segmentation. Form-based pages also pull information from the databases: for example, do online event ticketing for fundraising events your staff has already created in NGP, or take RSVPs for field events your staff has already created in the VAN. You can also display the volunteer opportunities your field team has created in the VAN on your volunteer signup page.
