Warren will donate $5,000 to every state Democratic Party in the U.S. in addition to giving a $15,000 check to the Democratic National Committee. 

“I want a Democratic Party strong enough to compete for every vote, in every race, at every level, in every state, in every election — and I’m willing to do my part to help make that happen,” Warren said at a DNC dinner in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday. 

Warren has criticized the committee in the past, saying last year that the party's 2016 primary was rigged. 

She later walked back the claim, saying it showed "some bias" in the contest between Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham ClintonTrump adds to legal team after attacks on Mueller Press: You can’t believe a word he says Feehery: March Madness MORE and Sen.

The announcement comes as speculation swirls around a potential presidential run from Warren in 2020. 

Warren has publicly positioned herself behind the Trump administration's policies and has called for Democrats to rally around various issues such as immigration, guns and banking regulations. 

However, she has downplayed the rumors, saying she is focused on her reelection bid in November.
