Thank you for considering an investment to support political advocacy on behalf of REALTORS®!
We understand that where you invest your dollars is personally important and the first step is to determine how you'd like your dollars used and if you'd like your contribution to be hard or soft dollars. From there, you can determine if you'd like to give to the REALTORS® Political Action Committee (RPAC), Direct Giving, Corporate Ally Program (CAP), Political Advocacy Fund (NAR PAF), or the Massachusetts Real Estate Community Alliance (MRECA).
So, what’s the difference between hard dollars (RPAC/Direct Giving) and soft dollars (CAP/PAF/MRECA)?
Hard dollars are voluntary personal contributions and are the only type of funds that can be given directly to Federal candidates and National RPAC. When you give to MassRPAC, 70% of the funds remain in-State. Soft dollars are generally raised from organizations and corporations. Soft dollars can be directly given to state and local candidates in some states, and can be used to help pay for the costs incurred in administering and promoting RPAC and for certain grassroots political programs. There is no limit on the amount of soft dollars individuals or corporations may invest in the Corporate Ally Program or Political Advocacy Fund.
About MassRPAC: Contributions to the Massachusetts REALTORS® Political Action Committee (MassRPAC) are used to support campaigns of MA state and local candidates. These contributions must be personal (businesses cannot invest in RPAC).
Annual Investment Limit: $500
