We make it easy for you to build your online fundraising program in no time, whether you’re running a national operation or launching your own campaign for city council. We charge a flat rate of 3.95% on each donation you receive to cover the processing cost.
Other than that, everything’s on us. You’ll have access to all the ActBlue tools as well as customer service to help your team and your donors at no extra cost.
No contracts, no surprises, no hidden fees. You can do the math.
We’re the go-to place for progressive fundraising, and donors love to store their information with us because they can give to all their favorite candidates and organizations with just a single click. We call these donors Express users, and they’re exclusive to ActBlue.
Because the Express donor universe is so large, your supporters are already a part of it. On average, 40% of your existing donors will already be Express users, and they’ll donate 72.9% more often.
These aren’t your average “fill-in-dozens-of-blanks” forms. Visually appealing and easy to navigate with pre-filled information for repeat donors, our optimized Contribution Forms have been tested and retested hundreds of times to ensure you make more money.
We respond to every phone call and email we get — from you and your donors.
You’ll receive your check minus the processing fee. You’re never under contract. You don’t pay when you’re not raising.
We take security very seriously. ActBlue is an outside auditor certified Level 1 PCI provider. We give your donors peace of mind.
Nobody can get you your money faster. When an election or fundraising deadline is approaching, you can’t risk your money being held up in banks. We move tens of millions of dollars each year. The banks know us. We get the cash fastest and out to you ASAP.
If you do plan on using ActBlue exclusively, you’ll qualify for extra perks.
We can list all federal candidates, as well as PACs and c4 non-profit organizations. If you’re not sure if you qualify, contact us here.
We also list all states (except CT) and some local candidates. Billing for some local and state candidates works a little different. Check out the list below to see if you’ll need a merchant account.
If you’re a 501(c)(3) organization, you’re interested in doing more and better grassroots fundraising, and your organization’s mission doesn’t contradict our values, you can be listed on our site.
For some local and state races, the laws require you to have your own merchant account. No problem! We have an easy system for getting you set up with an account, you can still use all of our tools seamlessly, and the fee is about the same.
Check the list below to see if you’ll need a merchant account.
This process takes about a week to complete, so make sure you contact us before you’re ready to start fundraising.
