Your RPAC contribution is an investment, the best investment you’ll ever make in your business and yourself. RPAC is your insurance against poorly designed small business and commercial real estate legislation. If you’re not giving your fair share to RPAC, you’re not doing all you can to better your profession, your business, and yourself.
Your voluntary investment is used to improve your bottom line in several ways: Through issues mobilization, political advocacy, and by directly supporting candidates at the local, state, and federal levels of government who champion the ideals and principles of REALTORS®. RPAC is your investment in real estate!
On the national level, we give our money to those in Congress who both understand and support REALTOR® issues. RPAC is the only bipartisan political group in the country organized for REALTORS®, run by REALTORS®, and exists solely to further issues important to REALTORS®.
As a member of the REALTOR® Party, you…
Your RPAC investment pays off with every political victory:
No, under federal election law, the earmarking of contributions is illegal. However, you can make a contribution directly to a candidate.
Federal law prohibits the use of your dues dollars for political purposes. RPAC is funded entirely by the voluntary investments of REALTORS®.
No one is asking you for a donation or gift. That implies that you’re never going to see your money again. By fighting to protect property rights and keep the government out of your checkbook, RPAC becomes your best investment in your industry, your firm, and your career.
No. Your investment is not tax deductible on your federal or state income tax returns.
RPAC provides you with the opportunity to have a collective impact on the election of officials who will shape legislation that affects your livelihood and the way real estate professionals do business!
100% of your investment is used to elect pro-REALTOR® candidates: 70% remains in New Hampshire to be used in state and local elections. 30% is forwarded to National RPAC to fund key U.S. House and Senate races. RPAC is bipartisan, supporting candidates and issues regardless of party affiliation. That’s why we are the REALTOR® Party!
Only members may contribute to RPAC. Contributions are not deductible for income tax purposes. Contributions to RPAC are voluntary and are used for political purposes. You may refuse to contribute without reprisal and the National Association of REALTORS®, the New Hampshire Association of REALTORS® (NHR), or the Seacoast Board of REALTORS® will not favor or disfavor any member because of the amount contributed. 70% of each contribution is used by NHR to support state and local candidates. Until NHR reaches its RPAC goal, 30% is sent to National RPAC to support federal candidates and is charged against your limits under 2 U.S.C. 441a; after NHR reaches its RPAC goal, it may elect to retain your entire contribution for use in supporting state and local candidates. Federal law prohibits the use of your dues dollars for political purposes. RPAC is funded entirely by the voluntary investments of members
