ActBlue Company Overview

Innovative tools + the power of millions

Our mission is to democratize power and help small-dollar donors make their voices heard in a real way.

We develop top-of-the-line fundraising software and offer simple, intuitive tools to help campaigns and organizations connect with new and existing grassroots donors. As a result, nonprofits thrive and Democratic campaigns get more donations through ActBlue than any other platform. Together, we build powerful movements.

How do we make that happen? Well, first we test and retest our contribution forms to maximize conversion rates. We make it as easy as possible to give, no matter where the donor is, or on what device they’re using. And we make it free for campaigns and organizations — no tricks or add-ons. And with a top-notch tech team, our tools are always dependable, and we’re always working to upgrade them.

That’s why a majority of Democratic Senate and House campaigns — along with the DCCC, DSCC, DGA, over one-third of statewide campaigns, and advocacy organizations around the country — have chosen ActBlue.

But we’re so much more than a toolset.

Together, we’ve raised over $2B dollars for Democrats and progressive causes in just 13 years. We’ve built more than just a fundraising platform. We’ve created the kind of grassroots power that can take on, and beat back, the power of corporate spending and secretive super PACs.

And that’s the difference that ActBlue makes to candidates, organizations, and the supporters who champion them.​

We’re a motivated team of software developers, political nerds, digital enthusiasts, customer service champions, and lawyers. Together, we’re working to build state-of-the-art fundraising infrastructure for Democratic campaigns, progressive organizations, and causes of all sizes.

We set the bar high for ourselves. ActBlue, a nonprofit, is the largest source of funds for Democrats. Every day we handle tens of thousands of contributions from small-dollar donors. That’s our mission in action. And it wouldn’t be possible without a collaborative work environment that values professional growth and innovation.

Each department uses modern best practices with a dash of elbow grease and teamwork to get the job done. Our tech team uses Rails, PostgreSQL, Redis, and Node.js combined with excellent test coverage and efficient code to develop the software that powers ActBlue.
