Donor coalition

The Georgia Alliance for Progress (GAP) is a coalition of Georgia-focused donors to left-of-center and left-wing causes, including pro-abortion advocacy, expansionist immigration policies, and increased labor regulations. GAP is a member of the Funders Committee for Civic Participation, a donors’ affinity group for left-wing voter engagement advocacy. [1]

Organization

As of November 2020, GAP is registered as an LLC. [2] The organization posted two job notices in early 2018, one of which stated the intention to recruit a board of directors. [3][4] No board or list of donor groups is given on the organization’s website, but both job roles have been filled and are still active according to LinkedIn profiles. [5][6]
