Hillary Clinton raised $37 million for the primary campaign during the last three months of 2015, surpassing her $100 million goal for the year, the campaign announced Friday.

Clinton's campaign raised an additional $18 million for the national and state parties the last quarter of the year.

The campaign said it raised $112 million for the primary since it launched in April. It has $38 million in the bank.

“Thanks to the hundreds of thousands of Americans who have joined together and powered this historic campaign, we are now heading into Iowa and New Hampshire with the resources we need to be successful,” Campaign Manager Robby Mook said in a statement.

Clinton aides said 94 percent of donations were $100 or less and more than 60 percent of donations were from women.

The Democratic front-runner headlined 58 fundraisers in the last three months, the same as the two previous quarters. Former President Bill Clinton had headlined fundraisers as well.

Clinton’s chief rival, Sen. Berie Sanders, has hinted at large fundraising numbers, but has yet to announce his fourth quarter numbers. Since he launched his campaign, he has received more than 2.3 donations and raised over $40 million.
