People Have Power

By law, corporations and trade associations cannot contribute to anyone seeking political office or to political parties. But people can. PACs allow individuals with common interests—ALTA members, for example—to pool their resources and directly support candidates of interest to our industry. PACs are the most legal, transparent and federally monitored form of engagement in the political process.

Authorize TIPAC to Solicit Your Employees

The Federal Election Commission (FEC) TIPAC to obtain approval from ALTA members before it can solicit and accept contributions from their employees. Giving permission simply gives TIPAC permission to communicate with your executive and administrative personnel, stockholders and family members of these two groups about TIPAC.

It does not obligate your company or employees to support or contribute to TIPAC.

TIPAC Fast Facts
  1. TIPAC can only accept personal contributions from individuals. No corporate contributions are permitted due to Federal Election Commission (FEC) law.
  2. TIPAC "hard dollars" are contributions from individuals that go directly to candidates.
  3. TIPAC "soft dollars" are contributions that can be made with corporate checks or credit cards and are used to cover the administrative expenses of the PAC. Soft dollars cannot be used for campaign contributions.
  1. Every dollar TIPAC raises (over $200) or spends is reported to the FEC and is publicly available at www.fec.gov.
  2. Individuals may contribute up to $5,000 per calendar year to TIPAC. Contributions are NOT tax-deductible.
  3. Contributions to candidates are based on their position on issues affecting the industry, committee assignments, leadership positions and relationships with ALTA members and staff.

2023 - 2024 TIPAC Disbursements

Primary Considerations
  • Candidates' position and/or voting records on key issues important to the title industry;
  • Candidates' committee assignments and leadership positions;
  • Candidates' likelihood of winning in a given election.
TIPAC WILL NOT Support
  • A candidate until he/she has filed the appropriate paperwork to get on the ballot;
  • Presidential primary or general election campaigns;
  • Opposing candidates for the same seat;
  • Contributions that can be perceived as being tied directly to a specific vote or party affiliation.
Additional Considerations
  • Candidates who are or have been in the title industry;
  • Candidates who have a personal connection to ALTA leadership and/or staff;
  • PAC member recommendations of candidates who reflect the ideals of ALTA;
  • TIPAC does not typically support challengers over incumbents except in cases where one or more of the above criteria is met or if an incumbent regularly supports issues inconsistent with ALTA positions.

If you would like TIPAC to consider making a contribution to a candidate for the United States Senate or United States House of Representatives, please email your request to Leah Shimp Vass at [email protected]. Your email must answer the following questions:

  • What is the candidate's name, state, party & office sought?
  • Has the candidate ever been in the title industry? If so, please describe.
  • Do you have a personal relationship to the candidate? Ex: Friend, neighbor, owns a rival title company, etc. If so, please describe.
  • What is the requested contribution amount?
  • Is there a fundraising event you would like to attend? If so, please attach a copy of the invitation.
  • Have you contributed personally to this candidate?
  • Are you a TIPAC contributor?
