Conservative Party leader Colin Craig has donated another quarter of a million dollars to his party's campaign fund.

According to the Electoral Commission's latest returns, Craig donated $250,000 to his party on Thursday - that's on top of a $100,000 donation he made on August 14.

He donated more than half a million dollars in March, $55,000 on May 30 and $100,000 on June 10.

Craig also made five donations to the party between last October and February, ranging from $10,000 to $50,000.

In 2012, all but about $5000 of the Conservative Party's donated $1,623,504.06 came from Craig.

It was widely reported Craig funded the party's 2011 election campaign himself.
