(Boston)--The Massachusetts Fiscal Alliance raised $853,063 in 2015, a marked increase over the $802,834 raised in 2014. The number of donations also increased, from 409 in 2014 to 608 in 2015.
"MassFiscal's consistent growth is a natural result of our important work," said executive director Paul D. Craney. "I expect that growth to continue this year. The elections and ambitious legislative goals will provide many opportunities to draw attention to cleaning up state finances, increasing accountability, and building a stronger economic climate in Massachusetts."
Craney pointed to the increase in the number of donations as an important measure of the group's success. "At the year’s end, our political force grew by half. A strong base of support going into 2016 is important, because along with opportunity, an election year brings challenges."
MassFiscal is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization which advocates for fiscal responsibility, transparency, and accountability in state government and increased opportunity for the people of our Commonwealth.
