How is ActBlue funded?
We’re a nonprofit organization, so we rely mainly on tips on the contributions we process. We also run our own fundraising campaign to bring in income for our tech team. Those emails are clearly branded as coming from ActBlue and not a candidate. All money raised through our own fundraising program goes straight to helping improve and grow our tools to make sure candidates and organizations on the left have the most powerful technology at their fingertips.
The low fees groups on ActBlue pay on contributions only go toward credit card processing fees. In other words, we are powered entirely by our amazing donors!
