The Federal Election Commission increased the limits on contributions that individuals can give to candidates for federal office and national party committees in the 2014 election cycle.
Individual donors can now contribute up to $2,600 to a candidate in both the primary and general elections — $5,200 total — and $32,400 per calendar year to national party committees. The total amount of federal contributions that an individual can give during a two-year cycle also increased to $123,200, including $48,600 to candidates and $74,600 to parties and political action committees.
Those and other contribution limit figures are indexed for inflation as directed in the Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act of 2002, better known as McCain-Feingold, and generally increase with every election cycle. source
