About the Campaign Finance Law

The Philadelphia campaign finance law applies to candidates for City elective offices. The City’s campaign finance law sets limits on political contributions to candidates, requires candidates and political committees to electronically disclose campaign finance information to the Ethics Board and gives authority to the Board to enforce and provide guidance on the law. The intent of the campaign finance law is to reduce the influence of large political contributors and to promote public confidence in our elected officials. As such, the City’s campaign finance law is an integral part of the City’s Public Integrity Laws.
