LETTER CARRIER POLITICAL FUND
LCPF funds are put to use to support candidates, regardless of party affiliation, who themselves support the legislative priorities of letter carriers.
LCPF money also helps finance get-out-the-vote and other political activities. Contributions to LCPF are entirely voluntary, and absolutely no union dues money goes to support political candidates.

"Gimme 5 for LCPF” means that active carriers are automatically contributing $5 per pay period by electronic funds transfer (EFT) or by using one of their three payroll allotments.
For retirees, that translates as $5 per month directly from annuity payments or by EFT. (More than $5 is welcome, of course.)
This steady flow of contributions helps the union more plan and budget its resources.

By making a contribution to the Letter Carrier Political Fund, you are doing so voluntarily with the understanding that your contribution is not a condition of
membership in the National Association of Letter Carriers or of employment by the Postal Service, nor is it part of union dues. You have a right to refuse to contribute without any reprisal. Any
guideline amounts are merely suggestions, and you may contribute more or less than the guidelines suggest and the union will not favor or disadvantage you by reason of the amount of your contribution
or your decision not to contribute. The Letter Carrier Political Fund will use the money it receives to contribute to candidates for federal office and undertake other political spending as permitted
by law. Your selection shall remain in full force and effect until cancelled. Contributions to the Letter Carrier Political Fund are not deductible for federal income tax purposes. Federal law
prohibits the Letter Carrier Political Fund from soliciting contributions from individuals who are not NALC members, executive and administrative staff or their families. Any contribution received
from such an individual will be refunded to that contributor. Federal law requires us to use our best efforts to collect and report the name, mailing address, name of employer and occupation of
individuals whose contributions exceed $200 in a calendar year.
