What is described in this section of the site as "Total Contributions" may be more accurately described as "Total Receipts" as it does include receipts other than contributions, such as transfers of funds from a previous campaign committee, bank interest and sales of t-shirts, buttons, etc....
However, what is described here as "Average Contribution Size" is calculated based only on actual contributions from persons other than the candidate. The calculation does not include transfers from previous campaign committees, candidate contributions, anonymous contributions, bank receipts etc.... Thereore, the figures for Average Contribution size will be different than what you derive by dividing Total Contributions (i.e. Total Receipts) by Total Number of contributors.
Finally, the contributions by size pie charts do not include Candidate and Anonymous contributions so you may note a small discrepancy between these pie charts and the total contributions charts.
Includes data from all reports electronically filed with the City Clerk on or before 5/25/2015. PLEASE NOTE! As of 3/18/2014 we are using new software to generate this page. The pie chart above is out of date and generated by our old software. The table below the pie chart is very up to date and uses our new software. Thank you!
