Pro-Obama nonprofit has $8.2 million quarter | The Center for Public Integrity

Organizing for Action, the nonprofit organization formed to push President Barack Obama’s political agenda, had an impressive quarter, raising $8.2 million, the group announced Friday.

OFA has raised $13.1 million from more than 237,000 donors since the group, which has ties to former Obama campaign officials, launched in mid-January.

The top second-quarter contributors to OFA were two major Democratic donors and bundlers for the Obama campaign in the 2012 election, Newsweb Corp. President Fred Eychaner and New York hedge fund manager David Shaw, each of whom contributed $500,000.

Eychaner was the largest donor to Democratic-leaning super PACs in the 2012 election, giving more than $14 million. That included $3.5 million to Priorities USA Action, which backed Obama’s re-election bid.

Shaw also contributed nearly $1.4 million to Priorities during the last election.
