Learn about the Finance Committee

What We Do

Despite our name, we’re really the “Event Planning Committee” and we take responsibility for raising the money that the Washington County Democrats need to cover their annual budget. The funds that we raise each year allow our county party to take a multifaceted and highly effective approach to driving Democratic turnout and promoting progressive policies in our county. 

We are in the process of implementing some exciting changes! In addition to our historic work on three major events (Spring Fest, Summer Picnic, and the Neuberger Banquet),  we will be planning and executing little events around the area designed to bring people out into the world. These might include things like:

  • Hillsboro Hops games,
  • Cook offs, and
  • Food truck parties

Additional fundraising avenues that this committee oversees include our sustaining donor program (known as the Blue Horizon Fund), and sales of custom merchandise.

If you have ideas and/or gumption to get involved, you can join us by emailing:

As a volunteer you could join us to book guests, caterers, solicit donations of goods or money, help market our events, and/or come up with fun new activities.

Who We Are

We are people who like knowing the money that we raise will turn into local Democratic wins at election time!
As Finance volunteers, we recognize that fundraising empowers our grassroots activists to make a difference, and we prefer to do it while being social.

What We Look For

You can volunteer with us as a single event volunteer doing things like working the door, or executing a specific task, or you can get more involved by joining our committee and helping to plan our events throughout the year. As a team we are: creative thinkers and team players, who working together to create an inclusive, anti-racist, pro-diversity environment.

If any of that sounds like you, please come to our monthly meeting on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at 7pm, OR contact the Finance Chair at
