Support Your Independent Agency PAC
IIPAC is a non-partisan political action committee funded through optional assessments collected during the annual membership dues process, as well as additional voluntary contributions. IIPAC contributes to the campaigns of candidates seeking election to the California Legislature, to candidate-based fundraising committees, and to candidates for statewide office. IIPAC is also used for participation in coalitions and campaigns on public policy issues important to members and their clients, whether by legislation, regulation, initiative or referendum. Contributions can be made by a company (corporate) or an individual.For more information on IIPAC, call a Member Benefits representative at 925-426-3300.
In 2020, California law permits individuals, or businesses/organizations to donate up to $7,800 to IIPAC in this calendar year. Separate limits apply to contributions made directly to candidates for political office. Contributions from individuals may not be reimbursed by an employer/organization, and political contributions are not tax deductible.
In cases where an individual making a contribution also owns or controls an organization that is also making a contribution, the total amount of all contributions are combined, or “aggregated,” for determining whether the $7,800 cap has been reached. Contributions are deemed “aggregated” if:
• Contributions from an individual’s personal funds and contributions made by an entity when the individual directs and controls the entity’s contributions.
• Contributions from two or more entities that are directed and controlled by a majority of the same persons.
• Contributions made by entities that are majority-owned by any person. Contributions made by the majority owner and all other entities majority-owned by that person are aggregated, unless those entities act independently in their decisions to make contributions.
