Donate to Volunteers
Thank you for your interest in donating to support campaign volunteers!
In the final weeks before the campaign, we need your help to ensure that our endorsed candidates have the best support available! Help us donate pizza to volunteers who are putting in their time, tirelessly working to get out the vote (GOTV)! Make a local donation today, to support these efforts.
To donate to the political action committee, you must be a US Citizen. Please note that donations to political causes are not eligible for tax-deduction. Limitations exist on how much money a person can give per year. For individual contributions to Federal Campaigns, those limits can be found here on the FEC website. Meanwhile, Michigan campaign limits can be found here: http://michigan.gov/documents/sos/CON_LIMITS_CHART2010_CENSUS_371574_7.pdf
If you are not a US Citizen, please tell your friends about our organization and help us spread the word. Also, please consider an alternative donation to one of these great causes.
We use a credible third-party political fundraising tool provided by NGP VAN, to improve the likelihood that your donation will be made in a safe and secure manner. You may also send us a check if you are not comfortable with the online procedure. Checks can be made out to "Detroit XPAC" and mailed to the P.O. Box location on the Contact Us page. Please note whether you would like your donation to go towards a "Federal", "State/Local" or "Administrative" category.
Why should I donate to you?
We know that Michigan pride doesn’t stop at the border. Donate because you love Detroit and Michigan. Donate because you want to be part of the revitalization of the city and the state.
Donate to us because we're doing the research. Donate to us because we're getting to know the candidates. Donate to us because we're going to make sure that what we do is also aligned with what locals want for the city. Donate to us because we're providing an avenue for you to support your hometown in a unique way.
How it will work:
Political Action Committees may donate directly to candidates. They may also spend money on media and educational campaigns and to other PACs. Our specific PAC is unaffiliated with any one particular party or candidate. We anticipate we will be a multicandidate unaffiliated independent expenditure committee. We will endorse the candidates whose political platforms, and if possible, whose history of action, reflects an understanding of place-making, sustainable urban planning and fiscal responsibility. We will send out requests to understand the issues on candidate platforms about which we care most. We will review candidate responses to surveys and interviews. A committee of volunteers will review the responses matching them against the goals of our organization, which will also align with the goals of local organizations. Once selected, we'll pool donations, and we'll report out where the money was allocated.
How Much Will Go To The Cause?
100% of all funds will go to support Detroit XPAC and its mission. To be even clearer: Our volunteers are dedicating their time and talent to the organization gratis. For the first year, we will do our best to put as much of the donations towards candidate related activity as possible. We would like to dedicate only what is absolutely necessary to administrative support in order to run the organization.
