The Commission frequently receives questions about the basic rules governing individual contributions to federal candidates and other political committees, including:
- How much can I contribute to a federal candidate?
- Does the federal government contractor prohibition apply to me?
- Will my personal information be disclosed on FEC.gov?
- Are contributions from minors permissible?
Answers to these and other common questions about contributions are available in our Record article “Individual contributions to federal candidates and committees.” Contributors also may want to visit our “Understanding ways to support federal candidates” page.
