By law, the maximum amount an individual may contribute is $5,400 ($10,800 per couple) per election cycle ($2,700 toward each of the 2018 primary and general elections). Federal multi-candidate PACs may contribute $5,000 per election. Unless designated otherwise by the contributor, all contributions received will be designated first toward the 2018 primary election, up to the maximum contribution limit, then toward the 2018 general election.
Contributions are not deductible for income tax purposes. Federal law prohibits corporate and foreign national contributions. Federal law requires us to use our best efforts to collect and report the name, mailing address, occupation and name of employer of individuals whose contributions exceed $200 in an election cycle. Contributions from labor unions, federal-government contractors, national banks, and foreign nationals without permanent residency status are prohibited. Contributions will be used in connection with federal elections and are subject to the limitations and prohibitions of federal law.
