Campaign Budget






Our budget template is an essential tool for any campaign. Used in tandem with your campaign plan, the budget will help you allocate resources until Election Day. This tool can also help establish fundraising benchmarks based on the campaign’s needs.

The Arena Budget helps campaign managers track detailed spending in the following areas: Staff Salary, Equipment, Research, Rent, Office Expenses, Voter Contact Program, Data, Website, Compliance, Consulting, and Paid Media.

The template is a condensed version of our more robust campaign budget template in our toolbox. This was made for the Arena Cup to guide your experiential learning.

Any budget is meant to be a living and breathing document updated and referred to throughout the campaign. Using this template, the candidate and campaign leadership can communicate and collaborate on budget decisions in real-time.

Republicans have spent decades cultivating talent and investing for the long run, and right now we’re paying the price. Republicans control 30 state legislatures, 28 governors mansions, and are just a few seats away from regaining control of Congress. Together with an activist Supreme Court, they’re enacting policies that turn back progress on everything from abortion to voting rights to climate change. 

Arena is building a new generation of political leaders who will lead the fight to save our democracy and build progressive power for the long run. It’s going to take all of us to make change. Join us in this work.
