Records show that the Transportation Leadership Coalition, which is fighting the referendum, raised $14,418, the AJC reported.
Cox Enterprises, parent company of the AJC, and Georgia Power both contributed $250,000. Coca-Cola Co. donated $197,500.
The TSPLOST would add a 1 percent sales tax in Gwinnett and a 10-county metro Atlanta region to fund transportation-related improvements. Collections would begin in 2013.
Suwanee and Gwinnett projects are on the list of proposed improvements.
