NOTE: All the numbers on this page are for 1999-2002 and based on Federal Election Commission data available electronically on July 09, 2003 (for Fundraising totals, Source of Funds and Total Raised vs Average) and on November 18, 2013 for Top Contributors and Industries. In the "Source of Funds" chart, "Large Individual Contributions" refer to all contributions from unique individuals aggregating to more than $200 within a cycle, and "Small Individual Contributions" refer to all contributions from unique individuals totaling $200 or less within a cycle. ("Help! The numbers don't add up...")

The organizations themselves did not donate, rather the money came from the organizations' PACs, their individual members or employees or owners, and those individuals' immediate families. Organization totals include subsidiaries and affiliates.
