Obama Donors Released (Monthly)

The Obama transition office announced today that they would be releasing the names of their donors on a monthly basis. Since December 15, 2008, the team has raised $3,803,222.48 dollars from a total of 53,853 donors, the report shows. The average donation is $70.62 dollars.

The move is "in keeping with President-elect Obama's pledge to run the most open and transparent transition in history," a release from the Obama-Biden transition office read.

The office reminded reporters that they only accept from individuals' personal funds with a $5,000 dollar limit and "refuse all donations from corporations, labor unions and PACs" as well as "contributions from registered federal lobbyists and registered foreign agents."

Here is the link to the website where donors will be listed.
