Today, Protect Your Care & Know Your Care announced their cumulative fundraising totals of $8,368,272 raised so far in support of the Affordable Care Act, Medicare and Medicaid.
“These strong fundraising numbers are yet another example of the excitement and energy that is out there to educate people about, and to defend, the Affordable Care Act, Medicare and Medicaid,” said Protect Your Care Communications Director Eddie Vale.
Vale continued, “Our strong fundraising has allowed us and our partners to hold over 1,000 events across the country educating people about their new health care benefits, celebrate the 1st and 2nd anniversary of the Affordable Care Act with a coalition of over 100 progressive organizations, and dramatically out organizing the Tea Party outside the Supreme Court.”
These fundraising totals include a) the results of our Form 990s filed with the IRS today that cover June 4, 2010 through May 31, 2011 and b) additional amounts raised after May 31, 2011 that will be on our next Form 990 filing.
