Welcome to the Philadelphia Campaign Finance Data Explorer
Philadelphia is a city of dichotomies. The poorest big city in America is also home to some of the wealthiest real estate, banking, and telecommunications companies in the world—not to mention universities with billions of dollars in the bank. These wealthy and powerful interests help shape the city’s political and economic agenda in many ways.
Analyzing campaign contributions can help demystify which particular individuals, companies, and interest groups are aiming to influence elected officials.
We designed the Philadelphia Campaign Finance Data Explorer to help the public better understand how money in politics shapes Philadelphia.
We have created four online “tools” that help you to explore the data in a variety of ways. Scroll down or click on the links below to go straight to the tool you want to explore.
