IAR members can meet their financial commitments to the REALTORS® Political Action Committee (RPAC) by making contributions to the RPAC Cash Raffle this week. The deadline is 11:59 p.m. Friday (Oct. 10).
Or, if you have already given, here’s a final opportunity to add to your donation; protecting your livelihood and possibly winning some cash.
For every $20 REALTORS® donate, they get one entry in the prize drawing. Four winners will be chosen, with first place getting $500, second place $250, and third and fourth places $125 each. Winners do not need to be present to win. In fact, the winners will be contacted by telephone and email, and their names will be listed in the Oct. 14 Weekly Connection.
Contributions are not deductible as charitable contributions for federal income tax purposes. The Illinois REALTORS® Political Action Committee (RPAC) collects contributions from members of the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) for political activities. A portion of each contribution will be used for state political activities; at least 30 percent will be used for federal campaign purposes. The federal portion will be charged against an individual’s federal contribution limits under 2 USC 441a. Contributions are VOLUNTARY and refusal to contribute does not affect membership rights. A member may contribute more or less than the suggested amount. A copy of our report filed with the State Board of Elections is (or will be) available on the Board’s official website www.elections.il.gov or for purchase from the State Board of Elections, Springfield, Illinois.
