About Us

Wave Fundraising specializes in face-to-face canvassing. We believe that societal transformation demands on-the-ground action. We partner with organizations working to solve some of the biggest problems facing our society - from protecting human rights to fighting climate change - and help them build the resources they need to make an impact. By taking to the streets and neighborhoods to engage in meaningful interactions we help these partners do more good in the world.

We are a people-powered enterprise; our campaigns are effective because we hire diverse teams of talented people, invest in our staff, and treat them well.

Featured Partner - Planned Parenthood Wisconsin

Women's reproductive rights are under attack. This session, the US Supreme Court is going to decide on a case that is a director challenge to Roe v. Wade - putting abortion access at risk across the nation. Women, not the courts and lawmakers, should decide what is best for themselves and their families. Our campaign will be rallying support for Planned Parenthood Wisconsin to make sure state's laws will protect access to abortion care regardless of who is on the Court.

Planned Parenthood Wisconsin can only sustain their critical work and take on new challenges, campaigns, and cases, with members and money. That's why they're partnering with us; we have the experience and expertise to recruit the members and raise the money groups like Planned Parenthood Wisconsin rely on to run effective campaigns.
