The Political Education Fund

Federal law requires that all contributions to this fund be in the form of corporate dollars. PathPAC can receive corporate contributions to the PEF from anyone. PathPAC may not accept any personal, individual contributions designated to the PEF.

Why does PathPAC need a PEF?

The Federal Elections Commission (FEC) prohibits the use of political action committee (PAC) dollars for any other activities outside of contributing to a candidate’s campaign. The PEF allows PathPAC to have resources needed to educate CAP members through political activities.

How will my firm’s/company’s contribution to PathPAC PEF be used?

PathPAC uses PEF dollars to:

  • Sponsor CAP advocacy activities, such as Capitol Hill fly-ins and securing the nation’s top political speakers for CAP events. These activities encourage relationship building between CAP members and federal legislators, as well as an open forum for discussion of issues pertaining to the profession of pathology.
  • Complement events and activities of CAP members. The PEF is able to double the impact of PathPAC by helping pathologists with the logistical planning necessary to host a fundraising event.
  • Defray administrative costs. Raising money costs money. PathPAC is able to use PEF dollars to defray the expenses associated with fundraising initiatives, mailings, and other needed activities to raise additional financial support for candidates and keep PathPAC strong.
