Donald Trump will headline his first campaign fundraiser in Albuquerque, N.M., on Tuesday with the Republican National Committee (RNC), according to The Washington Post.

{mosads}The fundraiser, hosted by GOP donor Kevin R. Daniels, requires a $10,000 contribution, and up to 25 people are planning to attend. Daniels told the Post the event was requested by RNC Chairman Reince Priebus.

“I am a pretty big supporter of Republican causes and the United States, and always vowed to support whoever our nominee is,” Daniels said.

Last week, the presumptive GOP presidential nominee’s campaign agreed to a fundraising deal with the RNC as the two sides continue to seek party unity ahead of a tough general election fight. The deal, referred to as a joint fundraising agreement, will allow Trump and the party to hold events together and split the proceeds.

Now, donors can write one check to a joint fundraising committee, maxing out at $449,400, with the first $2,700 going to the Trump campaign and the remaining money split up among national and local parties.

Trump has been working to ramp up his fundraising apparatus after running a primary campaign that relied heavily on his own money. Political observers, however, expect the general campaign to cost about $1 billion.
