ActBlue Company Overview

Helping small-dollar donors transform power structures

We’re a nonprofit driven by the belief that our democracy works better when more people participate in civic life and when our campaigns and nonprofits are powered by the people they serve. That’s why we’ve built a powerful online fundraising platform for Democratic candidates up and down the ballot, progressive organizations, and nonprofits. Our tools make it possible for anyone to build a grassroots campaign or movement and give millions of small-dollar donors an easy and secure way to support their favorite candidates and causes. 

If you’ve ever given online to a Democratic candidate or progressive organization, chances are you’ve used our software. We have a big impact on the future of our country, and we’re busier than ever helping small-dollar donors make change. Our software supports millions of page loads every minute. In 2019 alone, our platform handled 35M contributions made from 6M donors. 

We work year-round, so even when campaigns end, our innovation continues. Our engineers are constantly A/B testing our contribution forms, creating new features, and staying on top of the latest advances in online security. 

The best part? All of our tools and features come standard for any group using our platform, so a local food bank or candidate for school board can benefit from the same fundraising tools used by someone running for president. And we don’t leave folks to figure out our tools on their own! We have a dedicated donor support team, and our digital fundraising experts are ready to share their knowledge and work with fundraisers directly by providing trainings, insights, and other assistance.

It takes all kinds of people to power the small-dollar donor movement, and our growing team reflects that. We’re driven, creative, and collaborative people at the intersection of politics, tech, and advocacy. Learn more about our team and our work on our blog
