Liberal organization Planned Parenthood announced that it received over $300,000 in private donations since President-elect Donald Trump won the election in November, according to a Monday report in Glamour.

The $300,000 came in just six weeks, nearly 40 times what the organization normally sees in donations this time of year.  Proving that the donations are a direct response to the election, 82,000 individual donations were made in Vice President-elect Mike Pence’s name.

Millennials made up over half of the total donations to the organization in the six weeks after the election, and over 70 percent of all donations were made by individuals who had never donated to Planned Parenthood before.

Planned Parenthood isn’t the only liberal organization that received record funding after the election. The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) raised well over $7 million within the first five days following the election. The ACLU reports a grand total of $23 million in donations since Trump was elected in November.
