(CNN) — The Republican National Committee raised $7.2 million in April, one month after releasing its rebranding and outreach efforts following the presidential election loss in 2012.

Last month’s cash haul brings the committee’s cash-on-hand total to $9.8 million, RNC Chairman Reince Priebus will announce Monday.

“Our number one priority at the RNC is taking our message of growth and opportunity to all voters in all states. Our donors are making that possible with their exceptionally strong support,” Priebus will say.

Ninety-eight percent of donors gave less than $200, with the average donation being $50, according to the RNC.

The committee reports zero debt.
