PAC & Campaign Finance

PAC / Campaign Finance

In the U.S., political action committees (PACs) allow like-minded individuals – from companies, associations, labor unions and other groups – to support their interests and issues by pooling their dollars and donating to candidates. Roughly 3,000 companies and associations operate PACs, which are transparent and federally monitored.

But managing a PAC is no small task. It requires the ability to solicit contributions, direct disbursements, comply with complex regulations and manage administrative functions.

With the emergence of Super PACs, changes to ethics laws and other reform proposals, it’s getting even harder to keep up with campaign finance practices.

That’s where we come in.
