Headsup: The FEC third-quarter deadline for 2020–the last big quarterly donation deadline before the fall election–is one week from today.
We’re giving you this headsup because quarterly donation hauls matter to candidates.
It doesn’t just matter to presidential candidates, either. The quarterly deadlines matter to House and Senate candidates, too.
Big donors look at the quarterly numbers and weigh them carefully when considering which candidates to support with their own dollars.
If you need to budget strategically, aim to give toward the end of the fiscal quarters.
If you’re already giving monthly and have some to spare, aim to give before midnight on September 30. Your money is extra-magical then.
