Alice Funke summarizes the latest fundraising figures.

In terms of their overall second-quarter results, the Conservative Party turned in another record performance in the second quarter of 2011; raising $8.2M from 52,805 contributors, with roughly half the take coming from small contributors ($200 or less over the quarter), and the other half from their larger donors (over $200 for the quarter). As compared with the last similar election quarter (2008-Q3), the party has increased the amount raised from the small donors by a bit over 10% (up to roughly $4.0M from $3.6M), but from the larger donors by nearly 50% (up to roughly $4.1M from $2.75M).
