Advocacy Funds

The Pennsylvania Petroleum Association’s advocacy fundraising promotes political involvement through the support of candidates whose policies align with the goals held by our industry. Decisions made by these politicians can directly impact your company, your employees, and your profit margins. Each donation makes a significant difference when it comes to advocating for the policies ad legislation that you believe in.

The political action committee (POMPAC) and the Energy Defense Fund funds are used to fight on your behalf to limit government interference in the petroleum and fueling industry and protect your business.

POMPAC Fund

The Pennsylvania Oil Marketer’s Political Action Committee (POMPAC) raises funds through personal contributions from industry stakeholders. The personal contributions made to the POMPAC fund are then used by the PPA to directly support political officials in the form of a campaign contribution. Political contributions from corporations are prohibited by law in PA.

Energy Defense Fund

The Energy Defense Fund is able to accept corporate funds, which are not used for direct campaign contributions to political officials. This includes, but is not limited to, political educational efforts and lobbying expenses. The Energy Defense Fund works in conjunction with the POMPAC fund to assist the PPA in achieving our legislative and regulatory priorities.
