Can a wealthy person donate the whole amount you need?

Frankly, we're proud of our grassroots roots and our small-dollar donors. As of November 28, we were grateful to have received about 144,000 contributions at an average amount of $48. By the time we wrapped up our fundraising efforts, over 161,000 donors had donated an average of $45 each.

The Federal Election Commission's rules on campaign contributions still apply here. An individual is permitted to donate up to $2,700 to fund this recount initiative.
