Donations protected from disclosure

We release quarterly reports on donations protected from disclosure.

A donation protected from disclosure lets a donor give more than $1,500 to a party anonymously. The donor sends the money to us and we group it together with other donations protected from disclosure. We send the money to the party at regular intervals without identifying them or any details of the donation.
