Over four times the money raised during the same period last year, a mere 80000 behind the Conservative juggernaut. In terms of contributors, still a noticeable gap, but the Liberals have more than doubled their fundraising "base". It should be noted, that the new database the Liberals invested in only has partial impact this quarter (it wasn't until May that the database was even launched, never mind implemented). I would suspect this quarter and beyond, between this initiative and the aggressive membership drive, the donor numbers will improve further. That point aside, I think if you told Liberals at the beginning of this year that they would double their donors in a mere six months, there might have been some scepticism.
The NDP numbers are virtually unchanged, a slight improvement over last quarter. Still, with the Liberals no longer in the same range, the NDP figures look smaller by comparison. So far this year, NDP fundraising is down around 450000 compared to last year, a significant sum percentage wise. Conservative fundraising is steady, relative to last year. Liberals up about 4 million.
