Giving to your favorite campaigns and causes should be convenient. That’s why we’ve made it easy to use the mobile payment platform Venmo™ for any one-time donation.

Eligible users who download the Venmo app to their smartphones and log into their Venmo accounts will be able to select this payment option on contribution forms for eligible groups.

Donors can use Venmo for one-time donations to every type of group that uses ActBlue: political campaigns and committees, 501(c)(4)s, and 501(c)(3)s.


This digital wallet option is also available on desktop, so grassroots giving is accessible to millions of potential donors.

Plus, ActBlue users can add Venmo to eligible tandem contribution forms, where donors split a single contribution between multiple groups.

Remember: As a nonprofit, our tools come at no additional cost to any ActBlue user, from presidential candidates to local food banks. There is no added work or fee for groups to use Venmo on their contribution forms, and we will display Venmo as a payment option wherever possible.

Venmo is just one of many payment options available to donors who use ActBlue, including Apple Pay®, PayPal™, Google Pay™, and ActBlue Express, which allows donors to save their credit card with ActBlue for giving in a single click. Together, these payment methods give donors unparalleled choice when they want to take action by chipping in!
