(CNN) - Ready for Hillary, a pro-Clinton super PAC urging the former secretary of state to run for president, raised $1.75 million in the first quarter of this year, according to the group's spokesman.
The super PAC is part of a cadre of groups urging Clinton to run for president in 2016 and raising money to accomplish that goal.

Seth Bringman, Ready for Hillary's spokesman, said the group had over 22,000 new donors in the first quarter with an average donation of $53.
Nearly 9,500 of the donations came from "low-dollar, grass-roots" organizing events, where Clinton supporters gathered in cities nationwide and paid $20.16 to attend, according to the group.
Ready for Hillary has focused on building a sizable list of Clinton supporters, organizers in a number of key presidential primary states, and digital advertising. Ready for Hillary was organized early in 2013, shortly after Clinton left the State Department. It is staffed by a number of Clinton loyalists like Tracy Sefl and Craig Smith, both advisers with longtime Clinton ties.
In January, Ready for Hillary announced that it raised over $4 million from roughly 33,000 donors in 2013. Their most recent haul brings the group's total war chest to $5.75 million from over 55,000 contributors.
In January, a representative from the group said it will not buy TV ads with the money it has raised and instead will invest in on-the-ground organizing and other ways to help grow its database.
The group hopes if Clinton decides to run for office - a decision she has been flirting with during paid speeches across the country - those names could be a solid base of early supporters. The plan, according to a representative from the group, would be to make the list available to the campaign through a third-party vendor. If the campaign wanted the names, it would have the option to rent the list, pay a fair market value for it or swap names with Ready for Hillary.
