Political Action Committee

What is the PAC-PA?

A political action committee (PAC) is a committee that raises money, typically by a personal voluntary contribution, from people that have a common interest or in our case, belong to an organization. The purpose of political action committees is to give organizations, companies, and other groups, who are otherwise prohibited by law from supporting political candidates, a vehicle so that they can do so. There are very specific rules that a PAC must follow as it relates to contributions and expenses. PAC-PA is associated with the Association for Professional Acupuncture in Pennsylvania and can solicit personal, voluntary contributions from it's members. It will use those contributions to provide resources to the committees of political candidates for the promotion of reasonable acupuncture legislation.

Financing a PAC

There are significant differences in how a PAC may be funded and very specific laws relating to exactly where the money comes from. Hard money can be defined as voluntary, personal contributions. Since Pennsylvania is a hard money state, the APA cannot use membership dues to fund the PAC-PA. We are completely reliant on member donation. Contributions can be made at any time by following the link below or mailing a check made out to PAC-PA to: The APA P.O. Box 1081 Glenside, PA 19038

PAC contributions are not considered charitable donations and are not deductible as business expenses. Please consult your tax adviser.
