Find out who contributed and how much to political candidates and committees using our searchable database, compiled from New York State Board of Elections data. The campaign giving database includes tens of thousands of contributions totaling nearly $55 million to nearly 200 local and statewide candidates and 366 political party committees, union and corporate PACs and other organizations.

The contributions are disclosed in the board's January and July periodic reports as well as the primary filings through September for the 2014 election year.

Use the dropdown menus on the search boxes for committee name, candidate, office and or location to find out who contributed how much in certain races. Or type in the name of a company or committee, or part of its name, in the Corp/Committee Contributor search box to find its contributions. To look for individual contributors, type in a last name or partial last name in the Contributor Last Name search box.
