Biden campaign posts best grassroots fundraising month to date in March

The Biden campaign posted its best grassroots fundraising month to date in March, breaking its own record for small-dollar donations for a fifth consecutive month.

The campaign exclusively told The Hill that it also saw its active email list double in size from the end of 2023 to the end of March in a sign of enthusiasm and growth among supporters.

Campaign officials did not disclose how much money the campaign brought in from grassroots donors, which includes those who make small-dollar contributions and don’t attend campaign fundraisers, but it is expected to be well into the millions.

The March grassroots sum is likely to be bolstered by response to Biden’s State of the Union speech. The campaign raised $10 million in the day after the speech, marking the largest 24-hour haul of the campaign at that time.

The campaign also raised $1.5 million online alone the day after Super Tuesday.

And a massive $26 million fundraiser in which Biden was joined by former President Obama and former president Clinton included a virtual program for grassroots supporters. That event had already generated $4 million in grassroots fundraising in February alone, the campaign said.

The Biden campaign had branded March as its “Month of Action,” with the president traveling to every major battleground state and officials staffing up and opening dozens of field offices across the country.

The grassroots haul from the Biden campaign comes ahead of the organization’s report on its total fundraising for the month of March.

Former President Trump’s campaign and the Republican National Committee (RNC) announced earlier Wednesday they had collectively raised $65.6 million in March and had $93.1 million in cash on hand heading into April. It was the first month the Trump campaign and RNC could jointly fundraise after Trump became the party’s presumptive nominee.

The Biden campaign raised $53 million in February and entered March with $155 million in cash on hand.
