We started End Citizens United on 1st March 2015. Grassroots donors fund the organization. We are dedicated to counter disastrous effects of citizens during campaigns. We work to reform our campaign system. Our mission is to end corruption in politics. We form partnerships with many campaign finance champions in order to stop the unlimited and dirty money politics. Our group is a non-profit organization that is fighting hard to reclaim democracy.
We collected more than $4 million as a group in the first three months of this year. The projects are expected to raise more than $35 million before the 2018 midterm elections for Congress. The money will be significant enough as compared to $25 million that was used in the 2016 election. Approximately 100,000 individuals helped to contribute to the PAC in the first three months of the year. 40,000 individuals donated money for the first time. Tiffany Muller who is the president and executive director of PAC confirmed this. We have opened the door for all corporate and union donation to the election of candidates. We also want to raise and spend unlimited amount as a Political Action Committee during elections.
The PAC has urged contributors to donate $500,000 towards the campaign of Democrat Jon Ossoff within a week. Jon Ossoff is a first time political aspirant in Georgia. The 30-year-old Democrat has surprised many people. He collected more than $4 million. This contribution will be used towards the special election on 18th April. The seat was left vacant by Republican Tom Price who is the secretary of Health and Human Services. Muller said that he is still in the course of examining the races that will be involved in the group in 2018. Our group worked hard to defend the two aspirants known as Jon Tester and Sherrod Brown. End Citizens United operated as a Traditional Political Action Committee. We do not accept more than $5000 from a personal donor.
We managed to assist the top ranks affiliated groups regardless of the fact that that we collected a small amount of money in 2016. Adam Bozzi is the spokesman of End Citizens United. He proved that our group has partnered with other campaign finance groups. We aim at promoting corporate interests. We also aim at supporting the candidates to achieve their goals. We have incorporated television advertisement in order to disclose many legislative actions that are aired on many news channels. More than 325,000 individuals have signed with End Citizens United. They want the Congress to pass the legislation. We have many open branches in all states for purposes of reaching many people. We look forward to increasing donations by mobilizing the grass root donors.
