Association PAC (Political Action Committee) Fundraising

CAPTEL has a long history of raising funds for many of the nation’s largest association PACs and is widely recognized for its expertise and success in PAC fundraising for business and physician associations.

Our telephone and direct mail programs have added new sources of revenue to our client’s PAC treasuries keeping them competitive and growing in an era of sweeping legislative changes such as Health Care and Tax Reform, and, in the post-Citizens United era of the super and hybrid PACs.

Among CAPTEL’s long list of achievements is the development of a telephone renewal and new donor prospecting program to compliment a national business association’s successful direct mail program. Over a period of thirteen election cycles (1998-2022), CAPTEL increased total PAC receipts by 2000% and added 220,000 new, first-time contributors to the PAC. In addition, the company developed a telephone solicitation program for $1,000 and $5,000 PAC donors adding over 5,000 new donors to these major contributor categories.

For a specialty physician association, CAPTEL increased PAC giving levels by 300% in three years, and during the most recent election cycles of 2020 and 2022, the PAC was ranked as the largest specialty physician PAC in the U.S.  In order to achieve this level of success with physicians — a group of professionals known for their busy schedules, CAPTEL developed custom communications channels for physicians to respond to PAC solicitations and interact with our client representatives.

During the current election cycle, the company is again achieving record levels of PAC donor support on behalf of its association clients.
