Notes about Donations
Because Barack Obama is committed to changing the way things work in Washington, the Obama campaign does not accept donations from PACs or federal lobbyists. If you're a federal lobbyist, your money will be sent back.
By law, the name and employer of anyone who donates over $200 to the campaign are published by the campaign. This information is collected in a searchable database by Open Secrets.
You can donate up to $4600 total to the Obama campaign - $2300 for the primary election (which lasts until he officially accepts the nomination on August 28, 2008) and $2300 for the general election.
