MICPA Political Education Fund
The MICPA Political Education Fund (PEF) is able to provide legislative educational activities for legislators and MICPA members.
How will contributions be used?
- The MICPA Political Education Fund (PEF) uses firm/corporate contributions to fund advocacy initiatives and political/legislative education.
- The contributions are also used to defray administrative costs for grassroots events and PAC fundraising efforts.
- The money cannot be used to fund any candidate committee or PAC that contributes to any political campaign.
Why Should My Firm/Company Contribute to the MICPA PEF?
Commonly known as an “issue-advocacy fund,” the PEF can use your firm/company's corporate contributions to:
- Sponsor MICPA Grassroots Activities: These activities encourage relationship building between members and legislators, as well as an open forum for discussion of issues pertaining to the CPA profession.
- Complement MICPA PAC Contributions: Many candidates for public office have foundations or issue-advocacy funds of their own. The PEF is able to double the impact of the MICPA PAC by making contributions to such entities.
- Defray Administrative Costs: Raising money costs money. The MICPA PAC is able to use PEF dollars to defray the expenses associated with fundraising initiatives, mailings, even staff time and resources.
