Non-profit Promoting Obama Agenda Raises $4.8 Million

In just a few months of existence


In its few months of existence, the nonprofit advocacy group launched to promote President Obama's legislative agenda raised a little more than $4.8 million, a modest debut for an entity built on the infrastructure and grassroots organization of Obama's behemoth reelection campaign.

Organizing for Action shared its fundraising information in an email to supporters that stressed the number of small donors, noting that 109,582 people contributed an average of $44 each.

"To anyone who thought we couldn't do this, these numbers send a pretty clear message. It's never been done before, but supporters like you are doing it," wrote Executive Director Jon Carson.
