Political Action Committee

The LeadingAge California PAC was created in 2014 and supports candidates seeking public office that support nonprofit housing, care and services providers and the older Californians they serve.

Top priorities this year:

  1. Protect the nonprofit status of LeadingAge California members
  2. Promote workforce development that recognizes the pandemic's impact on recruitment and retention
  3. Promote thoughtful and effective oversight of the state’s assisted living communities
  4. Defend against excessive barriers to providing innovative quality care in the state’s nursing homes
  5. Promote public policy to establish and fund a permanent source for the development of senior housing in California
  6. Remove barriers and foster discussion of a nation-wide approach for financing long-term services and supports for all Californians

By supporting the LeadingAge California PAC, you will be working to promote the nonprofit voice in the state Capitol. Please consider supporting the PAC in whatever amount most appropriate for you and your budget today!

Frequently Asked Questions
A “Political Action Committee” or PAC is the term used to describe an organization established to raise funds and make contributions to candidates or ballot measure committees. The LeadingAge California PAC is subject to the provisions of the Political Reform Act of 1974 and is under the supervision of the Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC).
A. No, the Internal Revenue Code includes an absolute prohibition on directly (or indirectly) participating in or intervening in any political campaign on or behalf of (or in opposition to) any candidate for elective public office. (See IRS) However, these restrictions do not apply to employees of 501(c)(3) organizations acting in their individual capacity. According to the IRS, the political campaign intervention prohibition is not intended to restrict free expression on political matters by leaders of organizations speaking for themselves as individuals. (See IRS FS-2006-17 and IR-2006-36) Personal contributions to political action committees are allowed. Additionally, any for-profit organization regardless of its affiliation with a nonprofit corporation may contribute to a California political action committee (e.g., a members’ for profit subsidiary or related company).
