ACTBLUE
 
Current Status: Leading a small donor political revolution  



Changing the Game By: Creating an online portal that makes grassroots political fund-raising simple for candidates and small-dollar donors alike. Howard Dean once talked about a “$100 revolution,” when the power of ordinary people grouping together and giving small amounts would overtake the influence of vested interests and their army of lobbyists. ActBlue is helping turn this idea into a reality. Since 2004, the site has raised over $100 million on behalf of thousands of political candidates -- from Barack Obama to upstarts running for local office. The median donation is just 50 bucks. That's people-powered democracy, and a real game changer for our country's politics.
