Partnership Launches Campaign Hosting Package
Making Interactive Web Tools Accessible to Campaigns for a Just Future

CampaignFoundations.com today announced the launch of its Campaign Hosting Package, Basic, available for immediate deployment. Among its features are:

* The Drupal Content Management System to get the technology of the web out of the way as candidates and organizations seek to publish their campaign's content to the voting public;

* supporters.cgi, offering the subscribe, donate and volunteer forms that campaigns need;

* a mailman listserver to manage email lists and subscriptions, to protect campaigns from having their site used against them to spam the public. This server comes pre-configured with the six lists we recommend to every campaign, ready for you to customize to your needs.

* an account on our sql-ledger accounting installation customized to support your campaign treasurer in keeping the books and filing the campaign finance disclosure reports.

"We know these tools and building, administering and making them available to candidates is a full time job," said Cameron Spitzer, a founding partner. "We hope that Green candidates will leverage their small budgets to let us provide these services to them."

For a $50.00 setup fee and $39.95 a month, candidates, campaigns and advocacy organizations can now host their website with a hosting company who's administrators understand the calendar and demands of electoral politics and who stand committed to serving campaign needs.

CampaignFoundations.com is a partnership bringing together nearly a century of experience in community and electoral organizing and IT development and administration. The partnership exists to make the tools of an interactive web accessible to the candidates, campaigns and organizations who are working to foster a just and sustainable future for our world.
