$42.61M online in 2017 compared to $19.7M online in all of 2015
40% of total raised came online in 2017 (only 16% for NRCC)
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee today announced record-breaking fundraising for December of the off year. The DCCC raised nearly $9.5M in December 2017, compared to $6.7M in December of 2015. Reflecting the grassroots energy behind House Democrats, the committee raised $3.34M online in December with an average gift of $18. Over 60% of the total raised in December came from grassroots donations online and through direct marketing.
Overall, the DCCC has raised over $105M total in 2017 with $42.61M coming from online donations. Over 250K first-time online donors contributed to this total. In 2017, the DCCC received over 2.88M individual gifts under $200 both online and through direct marketing.
Despite full Republican control of Washington, the DCCC outraised the NRCC eight months in a row (May-Dec) and by a whopping $20M in 2017.
“I’m proud that grassroots donations continue to fuel our record breaking fundraising,” said DCCC Chairman Ben Ray Luján. “Despite full Republican control of Washington, we have far outraised our competition, which has already allowed us to invest in campaigns across the largest battlefield in a decade.”
