ActBlue donations surge in Q1

News: Democratic donors gave a total of $151 million to House and Senate races through the ActBlue fundraising platform in the first quarter of 2024.

The ActBlue data reveals an increase from the same point four years ago, indicating growing Democratic grassroots support as the 2024 election season heats up.

Compared to Q1 2020, ActBlue donors gave 20% more to Senate races in Q1 2024. And donations to House races in the first quarter of 2024 grew by 29% compared to four years ago.

Zooming out from the congressional money game, ActBlue processed more than 10.7 million contributions in the first quarter totaling $460 million. The average ActBlue donation amount was $42.73. More than 2.4 million donors gave to ActBlue in Q1.

An interesting note of the modern reality of fundraising: Donations from mobile devices comprised 67% of all ActBlue donations in the first quarter.
