RPAC Contribution Disclaimer

State political action committees are affiliated committees of the national RPAC, which are joined together by a signed cooperative agreement of joint fundraising and a 70/30 split of contributions received. All political contributions are split 70 percent, staying in Wisconsin for use in Wisconsin legislative and constitutional races, and 30 percent going to national RPAC for support for federal candidates. That portion used by national RPAC will be charged against the applicable contribution limits of the federal laws for an individual under 2 USC Section 441A, which allows a $5,000 maximum aggregate contribution limit from individuals to RPAC in any calendar year. Once Wisconsin reaches its goal, which is predetermined by national RPAC, based on $10 a member, the proportional split changes with 100 percent of the contributions staying in Wisconsin and 0 percent going to National.

Local board PACs are affiliated committees of state RPAC joined together by a voluntary signed cooperative agreement, which calls for a split of all RPAC contributions as follows: 30 percent Wisconsin RPAC, 30 percent national RPAC, and 40 percent board PAC. Upon reaching the goal of $10 per local board member, the split of funds changes to allow 50 percent to remain with the board PAC and 50 percent being split between Wisconsin RPAC and national RPAC, according to the above-stated formula.

Any solicitation of membership in RPAC is intended for members of the National Association of REALTORS®, its state associations and local boards of REALTORS®. Nothing herein shall be construed as a solicitation of contributions from nonmembers. While RPAC can legally receive unsolicited contributions from nonmembers, solicitations of such contributions are prohibited by law.
