Major Investor Plans

Major Investor Installment Plans
This plan gives members the option to spread their RPAC investments over a course of months to achieve Major Investor status ($1,000+) by the end of the fundraising year. Participants in this program pledge to become an RPAC Major Investor and select the five months of the year they would like NYSAR to charge their credit card. Click here to enroll in the RPAC Major Investor Installment Plan today.

"Pay as You Go - Major Investor Pledge"
This program allows Major Investors to pledge their RPAC support at the Major Investor level and to pay incrementally throughout the year. This may be accomplished by attending state and/or local RPAC events or by investing in RPAC whenever financially convenient during the year. This program gives Major Investors the flexibility to pay as they go and will also assist staff in maintaining an accurate list of Major Investors across the state, to ensure all are on track to fulfilling their pledges by the close of the fundraising year. To pledge your Major Investment through the Pay As You Go Major Investor Pledge, click here.

NAR's President's Circle
This program was developed in 2003 to mobilize REALTOR members to invest directly in REALTOR champions who take the lead on our issues in Congress. You must be an RPAC Major Investor to join the President’s Circle. President’s Circle members give a total of $2,000 in direct contributions to NAR-selected candidates/committees. These contributions are broken down into four $500 increments spread out from January – September 30,2018. Federal Political Coordinators, or FPCs, may give one of the $500 increments directly to the Member of Congress in which they serve as FPC. The President’s Circle is well known on Capitol Hill; members of Congress inquire how they can receive President’s Circle support!

Contributions are not deductible for income tax purposes. Contributions to RPAC are voluntary and are used for political purposes. You may contribute more or less than the suggested amount. You may refuse to contribute without reprisal and the National Association of REALTORS, the New York State Association of REALTORS or any of its local boards or associations will not favor or disfavor any member because of the amount contributed. 70% of each contribution is used by your state PAC to support state and local political candidates. Until your NYSAR PAC reaches its PAC goal, 30% is sent to National RPAC to support federal candidates and is charged against your limits under 2 U.S.C. 441a; after NYSAR PAC reaches its RPAC goal, it may elect to retain your entire contribution for use in supporting state and local candidates.
