Why am I receiving emails and/or texts from campaigns and organizations after chipping in on ActBlue?

Groups using ActBlue are building grassroots fundraising programs, which means they want to keep you in the loop and hear from you! When you give to a campaign or organization through ActBlue, we send your email address, as well as your phone number if you choose to provide it, to them and only them. Providing a phone number when donating is always optional. 

Regularly engaging with supporters through email or texting is fundamental to making a small-dollar donor program work. Email and texting provide a direct connection between candidates and supporters like you and create an accessibility that simply wasn’t there before digital organizing broke down barriers to civic participation! 

We never sell your personal information or share it with a group you did not donate to. In general, you can usually find an "Unsubscribe" link at the end of most emails that should take you off of that specific email list. To stop receiving text messages, just reply STOP to the texts.

Because ActBlue is a nonprofit, you may receive a fundraising email from us every now and then, but we do not send fundraising emails on behalf of any other candidates or groups. If you would like to unsubscribe from our email list, click here. ActBlue will never text you: Campaigns and organizations fundraising on our platform run their own texting programs. Even if you get a link to donate on ActBlue in a text, it is coming from a group that uses our tools, not us.
