There’s more to this
fund-raising guru than meets the eye.
Lindsay Jacobs serves as Executive Director of Majority Money. Lindsay has an extensive background in political fund-raising, event planning, and donor communications.
Lindsay previously served as the Finance Director for Mark Boughton’s 2018 campaign for Governor of Connecticut. Under her leadership, the campaign successfully executed a low-dollar, grassroots fund-raising strategy to qualify for Connecticut’s Citizens Election Program, securing $1.35M in state funding for the Primary Election and solidifying Boughton’s status as the only Republican-endorsed candidate for Governor. Following the Primary, Lindsay joined Republican nominee Bob Stefanowski’s finance team for the General Election, raising over $4M in the last three months of the campaign.
