Subseries 2. Fundraising, 1978

Scope and Content Notes:

Fundraising is an unavoidable and challenging process for any campaign, which was made even more difficult being that Thornburgh came from western Pennsylvania. Moving the campaign headquarters to Philadelphia was helpful, combined with effective and diligent fundraising leadership. The fact of Thornburgh’s being so far behind in the summer fortunately did not become public knowledge. The point spread would have drastically and adversely affected fundraising had it been known. The fundraising material dates from 1978.
