Since then, SPAC has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to aid political candidates who support the organization's issues. Only NAPS regular, associate or auxiliary members are eligible to donate to SPAC. Members can donate online, through payroll deductions or by sending a check or money order to NAPS Headquarters. Cash donations will not be accepted. More information about SPAC is listed below.
SPAC has developed a new Group Collection Form for 2019 that will help us better identify SPAC contributors and enhance our ability to account for SPAC receipts. The new form is posted below and replaces the old form.
It is important to note, consistent with Federal Election Commission guidelines, SPAC- collected funds, along with the supporting 2019 SPAC Group Collection Form and SPAC Contribution Forms should be sent to the office within seven days of collection. As part of the SPAC proceeds sent to Headquarters, there should be separate SPAC Contribution Forms for each contributor.
Unidentified receipts associated with "pass-the-hat" or raffles cannot be credited to the Branch/State. The 2019 Group Collection Form requires SPAC Chairs to reconcile the total amount sent to Headquarters with the individual Contributions Forms, so all funds must connected with specific NAPS members. In sum, the total SPAC funds sent to Headquarters must equal the total reported on the individual Contribution Forms.
Special Instructions for 50/50 raffles: If you are crediting individual contributors who participate in a 50/50 raffle, the individual’s name and actual contribution to SPAC must be on the SPAC Contribution Form. For example, if Mary Smith submits $10 to a 50/50, only the $5 sent to NAPS HQ can be credited towards a SPAC contribution, because this is the amount we report to the Federal Elections Commission.
Thanks your help in enhancing SPAC operations and accountability.
