Affiliate Support Fund

Dear Libertarian,

Helping our state and county parties grow and expand is critical for the recruitment and success of our future candidates.

Did you know that the national Libertarian Party has a staffer whose job is focused completely on supporting state and local parties?

His name is Andy Burns.

Andy helps Libertarian leaders and activists across the country, all day, every day.

Here are a few rave reviews that help illustrate Andy’s work:

“[Andy] has been instrumental in the improvement of our website and establishment of our database. His expertise has saved us several thousand dollars that we don’t have to spend on this. I can’t say enough about his vision, persistence and patience.” – Zack Banks, Vice Chair, Libertarian Party of Washington

“Thanks for all your help with the website. You got me a million miles down the road and I was totally not expecting this much support. Big relief.” – Tony Mangnall, Chair, Libertarian Party of North Dakota

“On behalf of the Libertarian Party of Colorado, I send this letter of thanks and commendation regarding Affiliate Support Representative Andy Burns. We needed assistance in setting up a new and modern website through NationBuilder which was beyond the skills of our volunteers, and Andy stepped in and went above and beyond the call of duty. Thanks to Andy, the LPCO will have a beautiful website to reach Colorado residents. He truly is a resource to the Party and a hard worker for Liberty.” – Jay North, Chair, Libertarian Party of Colorado

“As an elected Libertarian, I know the importance of having a professional, polished and organized state party behind me. This was important on the campaign trail, and it remains important while serving in office. Andy Burns is great at guiding affiliates to this level. With his help, the Libertarian Party of Connecticut updated its website, putting forth a face we are proud to show, overhauled our database and data management systems – enabling us to bring in dozens of new volunteers and thousands of extra fundraising dollars, and built the type of structure that can fully support our candidates and elected officials. I cannot recommend highly enough that every affiliate work with Andy as much as possible.” – Joshua Katz, former Chair, Libertarian Party of Connecticut

The national party provides a lot of benefits for state and local parties but Andy is one of our most visible resources.

Other needs vary with the election cycle. Right now, we want to help promote the upcoming Libertarian state conventions.

If you’d like to help support the national party’s work to support state and local parties, please consider donating to the Affiliate Support Fund.

Again, helping our state and county parties grow and expand is critical for the recruitment and success of our future candidates.

I hope you’ll consider donating towards this important work.

As always, thank you for your support of the Libertarian Party.

Executive Director
