That’s how many people donated to Organizing for Action, the nonprofit issues group that grew out of President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign.

The group raised $8.2 million in the second quarter from donors including hedge-fund executive David Shaw and Chicago media company executive Fred Eychaner, who gave $500,000 apiece, Bloomberg’s Jonathan Salant reported. OFA raised $13.1 million since it officially formed in January, the group said.

As a nonprofit, Organizing for Action isn’t required to disclose donors, though it voluntarily identifies people who give at least $250.

Organizing for Action is promoting Obama’s accomplishments and priorities, including a health-care overhaul and proposals to curb gun violence and revise immigration laws. Bloomberg’s Julie Bykowicz and Lisa Lerer reported in March about the group’s challenges and goals.
