25. How ActBlue Works


Thanks for asking. Most candidates use ActBlue.

Out of $20, 3.95% goes to the credit card company. The same amount going through the candidates own site would be charged. The DU gets nothing from your donation.

ActBlue does not sell OR send emails or texts. You will get a receipt email for a donation.

ActBlue is a non-profit PAC funded entirely by optional tips.

Besides Ossoff and Warnock, we are also raising funds for Fair Fight (STACEY ABRAMS) as an option. Fair Fight is a national voting rights organization rooted in Georgia: https://fairfight.com/about-fair-fight/

I hope this answers your questions. IF not just ask for more info.

We want as many groups as possible to be able to create strong grassroots fundraising programs. Our platform is available to Democratic candidates and committees, progressive organizations, and nonprofits that share our values for no cost besides a 3.95% processing fee on donations. And we operate as a conduit, which means donations made through ActBlue to a campaign or organization are considered individual donations. You can read more about our structure here.

We take care of building fundraising tools and technology so the groups using our platform can focus on engaging and communicating with their supporters — we don't fundraise, donate, or send texts or emails on behalf of any group. And as a nonprofit ourselves, we’re funded by our own amazing small-dollar donors!
