The latter months of summer can be slow at times in political fundraising. After passing the June 30th federal fundraising deadline (which exists for a number of states as well), donors can sometimes disappear. But over 50,000 donors later, nearly $6.7 million was raised through ActBlue in June and July for Democrats up and down the ballot.

The following shows our end of summer combined July & August statistics for activity on ActBlue.com.

Number of contributions 50,575
Total raised $6,691,950.48
Average Contribution size $132.32
Committees receiving money 1,718
Fundraising pages receiving money 1,609
Pages created 1,567

 

August exceeded July within each category above but let’s take a look at how this end of summer period compared to same time frame in 2008.

Once again, we’re looking our presidential year fundraising activity and then racing past it in every single category.

The Top 10 Candidates of July & August (by total raised) are a healthy mix–3 US Senate candidates, 3 Congressional, 2 Gubernatorial, 1 Lt. Governor’s, and 1 State Senate candidate.

Not surprisingly, many of the campaigns with thousands of donors are a result of the following successful ActBlue fundraising pages from the past two months. You can click on the titles to view the pages and see how they use ActBlue thermometers, video, branded partnerships, and joint candidate fundraising effectively.
