Who funds MoveOn?
MoveOn is entirely funded by its members—small donors giving small donations. Last year, our average donation was just $25.74. This year, it's even lower: $20.00. And we've had more than 300,000 different donors since the beginning of 2010.
We fund our activities on an as-we-go basis. So when we start a new campaign or start a new action, we ask our members to fund us so we can take that action.
MoveOn Political Action, our federal political action committee, publicly discloses all donations over $200 to the Federal Election Commission and does not take more than $5,000 in any year from any individual, as required by law. MoveOn Civic Action, our c(4) organization, similarly does not solicit large donations and while it legally could accept large contributions, we've chosen to limit contributions to the same level as the PAC.
