Mackie Burr is the Director of Digital and Grassroots Development at the White Coat Waste Project (WCW) a taxpayer watchdog and bipartisan coalition of liberty lovers and animal lovers who find, expose, and defund $20 billion in wasteful government spending on animal experiments.
WCW has been featured on the front cover of USA Today, New York Times, Fox News, and hundreds more, and was honored as “Public Affairs Campaign of the Year” by the American Association of Political Consultants. WCW was the very first organization to expose and cut U.S. taxpayer funding for bat experiments at the Wuhan lab — the suspected source of the COVID-19 pandemic ..
An up-and-coming leader in the industry, Mackie is earning a reputation as a strategic fundraiser, compelling storyteller, and disruptive innovator. Following her hire to a senior role, WCW’s revenue doubled, driven largely by small donors with a $22 average gift. She also ballooned WCW’s grassroots membership and supporter lists to nearly 3.2 million “do-ers and donors” — an 8-fold increase.
Mackie previously worked as a digital consultant for non-profit organizations and political candidates at the award-winning firm Campaign Solutions. At the age of 24 she led a team that raised over $6.5 million in grassroots donations for Martha McSally (R-AZ) — one of the top hauls in the highly targeted 2018 U.S. Senate campaign.
Burr is a proud graduate of Colgate University and resides in Oceanside, California with her pup, Andy.
