Energy Defense Fund
What is the Energy Defense Fund?
PPA’s Energy Defense Fund raises money through corporate contributions to support the association’s government affairs efforts. The fund works in conjunction with the POMPAC fund to assist the PPA in achieving our legislative and regulatory priorities.
How is the Energy Defense Fund different from the POMPAC?
The primary difference between the Energy Defense Fund and the POMPAC fund is the source of the contribution. 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.
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 direct campaign contribution. Political contributions from corporations are prohibited by law in Pennsylvania.
Where does my contribution to the Energy Defense Fund go?
Contributions to the PPA Energy Defense Fund are used to support the association’s government affairs efforts such as educational outreach to lawmakers, news services, bill tracking, consultant fees, and lobby disclosure registrations.
How can I request an invoice and/or pay by check?
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to be invoiced prior to making a contribution to the Energy Defense Fund. The Energy Defense Fund is not a separate entity of the Pennsylvania Petroleum Association. For that reason all contributions to the fund should be made out the Pennsylvania Petroleum Association.DONATE
