The USAction Education Fund is a 501c3 charity. Jeff Blum serves as the organization's executive director. [1]

In the March 17, 2004, article "Charities fill parties’ roles with help of millions of dollars in soft money," Alexander Bolton writes: "Blum said the USAction Education Fund would spend several million dollars to register 500,000 new voters, targeting young people, people of color, low-income people and gays and lesbians." [2]

USAction (web), "an affiliate of the USAction Education Fund also headed by Blum, is a member of the America Votes Coalition." [3]

"The fund," Blum said, "will also seek to inform seniors in battleground states on the Medicare bill Congress passed last year." [4]

Bolton says that "Blum is generally regarded as liberal. For example, he is participating in an effort 'against the president’s radical tax-cutting agenda.'" [5]
