Team Biden-Harris Raises More than $85 Million in May 2024, Entered June with $212M War Chest

$212 Million in Cash on Hand, More than $558 Million Raised Since Launch, Highest Total of Any Democratic Candidate in History at This Point in the Cycle

Three Million Supporters Joined Team Biden-Harris in May Alone

Fundraising Fueling More Than 1000 Battleground Staffers, Major Paid Media and Organizing Efforts

Today, Team Biden-Harris announced a $212 million war chest and more than $85 million raised in May 2024, continuing to build on the steady and historic work of the Team Biden-Harris fundraising operation. Team Biden-Harris’ May haul and war chest continues to outpace any Democratic candidate in history at this point in the cycle.

Team Biden-Harris’ May haul was driven by continued strength and growth in our grassroots network. May was Team Biden-Harris’ second strongest grassroots month to date, a majority of May’s raise came from grassroots donors, and three million more supporters joined Team Biden-Harris in the month alone.

This historic war chest is being used to election-winning campaign infrastructure building and efforts, including:

  • More than 1,000 Team Biden-Harris coordinated staffers across the country, and more than 200 coordinated offices.
  • New, major organizing and outreach programs like Black Voters for Biden-Harris and today’s announcement of new investments into organizing and paid media targeting Latinos during Copa América.
  • A historic, $50 million paid media program targeting battleground voters in the month of June ahead of the first presidential debate.

“Our strong and consistent fundraising program grew by millions of people in May, a clear sign of strong and growing enthusiasm for the President and Vice President every single month,” said Julie Chavez Rodriguez, Biden-Harris 2024 Campaign Manager. “The money we continue to raise matters, and it’s helping the campaign build out an operation that invests in reaching and winning the voters who will decide this election – a stark contrast to Trump’s PR stunts and photo-ops that he’s pretending is a campaign. From person-to-person organizing to a historic paid media campaign, we’re doing the work to reach and earn the votes needed to win in November.”

“With Election Day right around the corner, voters are energized and motivated to rally behind Team Biden-Harris,” said DNC Chair Jaime Harrison. “And this May, our grassroots donors showed up and showed out. Powered by nurses, teachers, and retirees, our fundraising program is rapidly growing and reaching voters nationwide. While Trump is leaching off his billionaire sycophants, our campaign represents the voices of America, and we’re honored to have their support as we race toward November.”

Team Biden-Harris’ strong grassroots operation in May reflects growth and durability across the campaign, DNC, and its joint fundraising committees:

  • May was Team Biden-Harris’ second strongest month for grassroots fundraising to date.
  • Team Biden-Harris grew its active email list by another 3 million subscribers in May – two million more additions than in April and continuing to build upon its universe, which is already the largest in the history of Democratic politics.
  • May was Team Biden-Harris’ best month for recurring donors to date.
  • Since launch, 96% of all our donations were under $200 and 2 million donors have made nearly 5.6 million contributions.
  • Team Biden-Harris now has over 250k recurring donors, over 1.4 times what we had at this point in 2020.
  • A majority of May’s raise came from donors hailing from all 50 states and all walks of life – mainly teachers, nurses, and retirees.

Donald Trump’s campaign tells a different story. His campaign and the RNC have closed battleground state offices, announced no at-scale organizing programs, and have virtually zero battleground staff. And Trump is proudly selling the American people out to billionaire oil and gas executives to fund his campaign – and his other issues.

President Biden’s 2020 campaign raised over $1 billion, the most money of any presidential campaign in history, which included $700 million online driven by small-dollar donations – also the most in history. With President Biden at the top of the ticket, ActBlue saw over 133 million separate donations in the 2020 cycle with 71% being first-time donors.
