Searching for groups using an ActBlue Express account
ActBlue Express users can easily find campaigns and organizations to give to on ActBlue through the search function in ActBlue Express accounts. After logging into your account at secure.actblue.com/signin, the search bar will be located at the top left of your screen:
You can also reach the search page by clicking the “Find a campaign or cause” link in your Account menu:
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!
In addition to donating and creating a community form right from the search results, you can also follow a group on social media. Just click “Follow on Facebook” or “Follow on Twitter,” and you will be taken to their social media page!
This also works on mobile devices!
ActBlue Express users can also quickly give again to groups they’ve donated to in the past from their account’s “History” page. To learn more about giving again through your ActBlue Express account, click this link.
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 be brought straight to one of their contribution forms where you can give 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 be brought to 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 (secure.actblue.com):
