Parteispenden (Party contributions)
JSIV asked me about the Party contributions in Germany in another thread:
First of all - I'm no expert since German politics bores me to death.
But yes, it's true that there are party contributions and there also
were some scandals about that in the past.
However - as far I know there aren't any fund-raiser for elections
and I'm not sure if this would even violate current law since the
Party has to pay for a party members race.
According to Wikipedia, Party contributions aren't limited. Contributions
above 10,000€ must be published within the "statement of account".
Wiki quotes that about 15% comes from contributions and that
for each Euro being contributed, an additional 0,38 Euro are subsidized
by the Government. (Maximum for subsidies is 3300 Euro)
There are also some Graphs to the biggest contributors:
And here's more info concerning Party-Funding:
