* We are now including data from the daily reporting cycle (5/7 - 5/21) in the dashboard below. During this period of time, candidates have to submit reports within 24 hours of receiving contributions of $500 or more from any single source. Since this data only includes these larger contributions, it is not complete. If you wish to exclude this data, you can use the “24-HR REPORTS DATA” filter.
Tips for using the tool:
In order to use the Sector or Contributor filters, you need to first unselect (ALL) and then you can select an option (you can also type names in to search for specific contributors).
Hover your cursor over the numbers in the Top Contributors list to see short descriptions of contributors which were collaboratively researched by Philly Power Research volunteers. The colors of the numbers correspond to the sector colors shown in the center panel.
If you want to reset the dashboard to its original settings (which show all at-large City Council candidates’ fundraising from 1/1/18 to present, including data from the 24-hour reporting cycle), you can click on the “reset” button, which is the third button from the left in the bottom right corner of the dashboard.

Our dataset currently covers all contributions (monetary and in-kind) over $50 to every 2019 candidate for Mayor, City Council, City Commissioner, Sheriff, and Register of Wills who has submitted at least one campaign finance report.
