Please note that BlueFlower Fund supports female, Democratic, pro-choice candidates running for local or state office ONLY. First, the candidate committee will determine whether an applicant is eligible to receive funding based upon four threshold criteria--whether the candidate is: (1) Female; (2) a registered Democrat; (3) who is pro-choice; and (4) running for local or state office. You may be running in a nonpartisan election, but you must be a registered Democrat. Second, qualities considered for selection include viability, competitiveness of the contest, and other factors that may be considered on a case-by-case basis. If you do not meet all four of these threshold criteria, your application will not be considered. Your application will be considered if you meet these criteria and may be deferred or declined for funding or endorsement based on your responses and variables present in your particular race. We understand that you have limited time as a candidate for office, and we appreciate candidates who take the time to consider our questionnaire thoroughly. We also understand that your campaign strategy is critical to your success; it will be kept confidential and will be used for BlueFlower’s funding decisions only.
