I'm going to take a guess that if you are using Venmo you are most likely under 30 years old and this may be the first time you've considered contributing to a candidate or cause. Here are some basic rules for donations from the Federal Election Commission just to make you aware.
Rules aside, I'm only looking for a symbolic donation from young adults. $1 or $2 if you are in school and scraping to get gas money. If you're in the workforce and can afford a little more that would be awesome. Bottom line, the donation is meant to be symbolic especially if you can't get involved in other ways. Oh, so what will your $2 support. It's enough to pay for a yard sign. If you'd like one in your yard, click on the "volunteer opportunities" button below to see how to get one.
Here's the Venmo account and thanks for the support. Let's own our future.
Welcome to money in the 21st Century. It might surprise some reading this that my #1 form of donations in this campaign so far has been in Bitcoin. As a tech entrepreneur it's no surprise to me. If you've had the good fortune of the cryptocurrency appreciation or just want to use it in a cool way like donating to my campaign, that would be excellent. Use the code below to send payment. If you didn't read from above, the limit is $2,700 for an individual and over $50 requires that I get more info from you to submit to the Federal Election Commission. Thanks for the support and embracing the next generation of money.

Cash will only be accepted at certain events where my Treasurer Bill Derose is present to record your information and provide a receipt. Sorry, campaign rules are sensitive about this stuff as well they should be.

Please know the limit is $2,700 and if you provide an amount greater than $50 I will need your name and mailing address, over $200 we will need your occupation and employer.
If you are somehow compelled to donate something say for the purpose of a fundraiser or raffle or similar, the same rules apply as though it were a check or other cash donation.
There are some incidental use services that don't require documentation. For example, allowing us to use a PA system for an event would be considered incidental. We will advise you when appropriate.
