These funds are drawn on a personal, not corporate, checking account or credit card. Contributions to the Raiser For Congress are not deductible as charitable contributions for federal income tax purposes. Funds received in response to this solicitation are subject to federal contribution limits. Contributions from corporations, foreign nationals, labor organizations and federal government contractors are not permitted. The maximum allowable contribution per individual is $5,600 ($2,800 to the primary and $2,800 to the general election).
An individual may write one check for $5,600 and indicate “primary/general” in the memo of the check. A couple may write one check for up to $11,200 from a joint account (where both names are listed on the account) if “primary/general” is indicated in the memo of the check and this form is completed and signed by both contributors. Federal law requires us to use our best efforts to collect and report the name, address, occupation and employer of each individual whose contributions exceed $200 in an election cycle.
