Federal Election Commission Announces New Contribution Limits for 2019-2020

The Federal Election Commission periodically reviews federal campaign finance contribution limits and makes adjustments based on inflation.

For 2019-2020, individuals may contribute a maximum of $2,800 per candidate per election, increased from $2,700. Individuals may also contribute a maximum of $35,500 per year to national party committees and a maximum of $106,500 per year per account to additional national party accounts, such as those for the presidential nominating conventions, election recounts and contests, and national party headquarters buildings. The prior annual contribution limits were $33,900 and $101,700 respectively.

The increased contribution limits also apply to non-multicandidate political action committees. Other contribution limits for candidate committees, multicandidate political action committees, and state/district/local/national party committees remain unchanged from 2018.

The commission also changed some provisions for coordinated party expenditures and for bundled contributions by lobbyists.

For more information about these adjustments or other topics involving the federal government, please contact the Barnes & Thornburg attorney with whom you work or Ron Miller at 202-408-6923 or ronnie.miller@btlaw.com.
