Soft money are donations and expenditures that are spent indirectly on elections in ways other than donations to a candidate's campaign.

Soft money is subject to fewer regulations because it is not spent as effectively as hard money. For example, soft money cannot be used to "expressly advocate" voting for a candidate.
