WASHINGTON--President-elect Barack Obama has raised $1.170 million from 1,776 donors to help bankroll his presidential transition effort. He is releasing the named of his donors at his transition web page.

He's not taking any more than $5,000 from individuals. This fund is separate from the money Obama is raising to help pay for his inauguration festivities.

In keeping with President-elect Obama's pledge to run the most open and
transparent transition in history, the Obama-Biden Transition Project has
voluntarily chosen to release the names of its donors on a monthly basis. As of
November 15, 2008, a total of $1,170,937.44 had been raised from 1,776 donors.

The Obama-Biden Transition project only accepts contributions from individuals'
personal funds - we refuse all donations from corporations, labor unions, and
PACs. Individuals may not donate more than $5,000. We also refuse all
contributions from registered federal lobbyists and registered foreign agents.
