Searching for groups using an ActBlue Express account

If you know what group or candidate you want to donate to, you can simply type in their name using the search bar at the top of the page.

ActBlue Express users can also find campaigns and organizations to give to through their ActBlue Express Account Dashboard. After logging into your account at, you land on your Home page. Under “Recent Contributions” there are two modules: one for searching for candidates and the other to search for nonprofit organizations. 

You can use the “Find a candidate” tool to find political campaigns to donate to. You may also want to expand to “see all filters” and refine your search. 

To find a nonprofit organization to support, use the “Find nonprofits related to” tool. As you select issue areas, more options will appear to help you refine your search. 

Once you’ve selected your filters, click “See candidates” or “See nonprofits” to land on a list of results. 

You can view the full search page by selecting “Browse” from the left navigation bar. 

You can search for a specific candidate or organization by name or use our filters to search by upcoming elections, state or territory, the office a candidate is running for, committee type, fund type (like nominee funds and draft funds), or nonprofit issue area.

Once you find the group you would like to give to, you can donate right from the search results! 

You can also search for candidates or organizations from  your mobile device after logging into your ActBlue account. 

ActBlue Express users can also quickly give again to groups they’ve donated to in the past from their account’s “History” page, under Contributions in the menu bar. Click here to learn more about giving again through your ActBlue Express account.

Searching for groups without an ActBlue Express account

Anyone can search our directory to see all of the different groups you can donate to through ActBlue!  You can use the links in the box to filter results by type of group or fund, election, and state.

If you have a specific group in mind, type the name of the candidate, committee, or organization you want to fundraise for in the search box.

If you select a group from the dropdown, you’ll land on one of their contribution forms, where you can donate right away.

If you click the magnifying glass instead of picking a group from the dropdown, you’ll see the groups that match your search. Just click the green “Contribute” button for the group you want to support, and you’ll land on a contribution form where you can donate!

If you want to give to a campaign, make sure you verify the race to the left of the campaign’s name before going to the contribution form (thousands of campaigns use our platform).

You can also access our directory from our homepage (
