Political party contributions

Reporting on candidate forms

House and Senate committees report contributions received from political party committees and organizations on Form 3. These contributions are itemized on Schedule A, supporting Line 11(b), regardless of the amount of the contribution.

To itemize a party contribution, the committee discloses:

  • The political party’s name

  • Mailing address

  • Election to which a contribution was designated (indicated by checking “primary,” “general,” or “other” in the election designation box)

  • Date of receipt

  • Amount of receipt

  • Aggregate election-cycle-to-date total of all receipts from the source


The committee reports the political party contribution, in this case from State Party of Virginia, on Schedule A, supporting Line 11(b). It includes the party’s name and mailing address. It also includes the date of receipt, amount of receipt, election designation and aggregate election cycle-to-date total for the contributor. The committee also reported the party’s FEC identification number, C00543210.
