54 Percent of Contributions Came from New Donors
NEW YORK–(ENEWSPF)–August 2, 2016. Hillary Clinton had her best fundraising month of the campaign in July, bringing in nearly $90 million for Hillary for America and the Democratic Party. Her campaign began August with more than $58 million in the bank. HFA’s average donation for the month was just $44 and about 54 percent of donations in the month of July came from new donors.
“We come out of the Democratic National Convention with our party united and our supporters energized for the final 98 days of this campaign,” said Hillary for America Campaign Manager Robby Mook. “Our goal for the next 98 days is to take the remarkable outpouring of support we saw as Hillary Clinton took the stage in Philadelphia and build on our efforts to organize and mobilize millions of voters to elect progressive candidates up and down the ballot in November.”
HFA also saw its best 24-hour period for online fundraising of the campaign with more than $8.7 million coming in online between 8 pm on Thursday, July 28th and 8 pm on Friday, July 29th as Clinton addressed the Democratic National Convention and officially accepted the Democratic nomination.
About $63 million of the total raised was for Hillary for America while about $26 million was raised for the DNC and state parties across the country through the Hillary Victory Fund and the Hillary Action Fund.
