Director Steven Spielberg and DreamWorks Animation CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg reaffirmed their commitment to President Barack Obama's reelection last month, writing checks for $1 million each to super PAC Priorities USA.

And their donations don't go unnoticed. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the PAC raised a total of $15.25 million during the month of September, with David L. Boies Jr., who fought to overturn Proposition 8 in California, giving $1 million as well.

In total, Katzenberg has donated $3 million to Priorities USA Action, according to a report the group filed with the Federal Elections Commission on Oct. 20.

The report also shows contributions made by Wal-Mart Chairman Samuel R. Walton, who gave $300,000, as well as "The Simpsons" creator Matt Groening, who donated $50,000. Chicago media mogul Fred Horwich Eychaner also gave $2 million, bringing his total donation to $3 million.

Over the past few months, the PAC has seen numerous contributions from celebrity donors, including Morgan Freeman and Bill Maher, who both gave $1 million to support Obama's reelection.

The October PAC contribution report is due out on Nov. 20.
