Concerts for Kerry, a grassroots group organizing benefit performances nationwide, raised $207,043 for John Kerry's presidential campaign. Between April and the end of July,
we held 40 concerts in 12 cities, attended by 9,075 people.


Fundraising for the Kerry-Edwards campaign has now ended.

The creators of Concerts for Kerry have started a new project to support John Kerry and mobilize Democratic voters in swing states:
