Our finance reports

Election year is here and we’re preparing to dole out large sums of money to influence the race for Minneapolis Board of Estimate and Taxation. We’re also keeping a pledge, made in 2019, to be transparent about our finances.

2020 Annual Report

You may be wondering: why are there no donor names on our fundraising reports? Well, our donors were careful to keep their donations at $100 or less, which keeps their names off of public reports. This is as transparent as we are legally obligated to be.

Keep in mind, if you would like to donate more than $100, we are happy to receive those donations. This would give you the privilege of being singled out for glory on our campaign finance reports to Hennepin County.

Historic 2019 Fundraising

We just doubled up on our record 2019 fundraising haul!

The Club for Taxpayer Justice has raised more money than any PAC in the history of the Minneapolis Board of Estimate and Taxation. While it is true that there has never been (to our knowledge) a BET-specific PAC in the history of the BET — you have to admit that part of making history is being the first to do something.

Many thanks to the supporters who joined us on Thursday for the Fundraising Spooktacular.
