What is the PAC
504 PAC is the political action committee of NADCO. It donates funds to selected political candidates who consistently and actively support causes important to NADCO members. Overseen by the Board of Director’s PAC committee, 504PAC contributions are used to raise the level of awareness about the 504 program with key lawmakers on Capitol Hill. Combined with NADCO’s grassroots program and the ongoing outreach on Capitol Hill, 504PAC is a critical tool in NADCO’s active government relations strategy. Through members’ contributions to 504PAC, we are able to educate more members of Congress and their key staff about the 504 program.

Why Should I Donate to the PAC
NADCO members can often speak with a louder and stronger voice together than they can separately. 504PAC allows donors to increase influence from their own state and to be part of a larger, more powerful group. It supports candidates across the country who are champions for the REAL 504 program and need support to continue their work on behalf of CDCs. 504PAC is also an important educational tool for members of Congress. Events available due to 504PAC donations are a chance for time with elected representatives who are interested in learning more about NADCO and the REAL 504 program.

Who Should Donate to the PAC
Everyone! 504 PAC donors should be as diverse and far-reaching as the 504 program is. You support issues critical to CDC and small business success through your donation. Each dollar 504PAC receives helps the REAL 504 program gain notice.
