ABSTRACT

This article studies the institutional conditions for the popularization of digital micro fundraising. It calls for the introduction of new payment methods technologically; the consolidation of open and democratic principles ethically; and the revision of the related laws institutionally. Despite the limits of the current legal framework, there are a variety of fundraising methods available while election funds have become nearly an essential element in political campaigns. However, enacted in 2004, the current Political Funding Act does not fully accommodate the recent changes in political fundraising while recognizing the desirability of micro fundraising. In order to popularize political donations, it is needed to establish the political values and principles of digital grassroots donation, improve the related systems, and introduce new technologies for fundraising. With such a background, this article reviews recent studies, recent legislations, and recently introduced methods regarding political fundraising to develop a reform agenda in technological, ethical and institutional terms.
