About ActBlue

I just received a check from ActBlue. What does this mean?

Small-dollar donors found your campaign or organization on our platform and have decided to contribute to support your work. Those aren’t funds coming directly from ActBlue, they’re coming from donors who want to support you — we just processed those dollars and cut you a check. If you already have an account as an admin user on ActBlue’s website and want to see who it was that contributed, just follow this link to learn how.

If you don’t have an ActBlue account, or you have any further questions about the check you’ve received, feel free to
get in touch, or call our office at 617-517-7600.
