Eric Grietens’ (r) 2016 gubernatorial campaign filed its third quarter campaign finance report with the Missouri Ethics Commission on October 15th:

4579 Laclede Ave #138 Party Affiliation: Republican
St Louis Mo 63108 Established Date: 02/24/2015

It was a very good quarter, the best among all of the 2016 republican gubernatorial candidates.
The contribution listed as $20,074.54 is from the item reporting the aggregate of contributions $100.00 or less from individuals (line 13).
Interestingly, most of Eric Greitens’ (r) contributions came from out of state:
Those out of state individuals (and entities) can’t vote in the August 2016 primary.
Over 80% of the total contributed this quarter came in amounts of $5,000.00 or more.
Close to two thirds of the amount raised came in contributions of $25,000.00 or higher. There was a single contribution of a half a million dollars. This is not new in Missouri politics, nor is it particularly indicative of a populist surge within the state – the three largest contributions came from out of state.
The campaign made $262,505.78 in monetary disbursements this quarter. Some of the expenditures:
