REALTOR Political Action Committee (RPAC)

Support the REALTOR Party by Investing in the REALTORS Political Action Committee (RPAC)

Since 1969, the REALTORS Political Action Committee (RPAC) has promoted the election of pro-REALTOR candidates across the United States. The purpose of RPAC is clear: to support and elect candidates who understand and support REALTOR Party issues, private property rights, and sustainable smart growth initiatives. The REALTOR® Party is a powerful alliance of REALTORS® and REALTOR® Associations working to advance public policies and candidates that build strong communities, protect property interests and promote a vibrant business environment.​ The money to accomplish this comes from voluntary contributions made by REALTORS. These are not members’ dues but money given freely by REALTORS in recognition of how important campaign fundraising is to the political process. RPAC doesn’t buy votes. RPAC enables REALTORS® to support candidates that support the issues that are important to their profession and their clients. Personal and corporate investments may be made to RPAC.

Support the REALTOR Party by Investing in the Corporate Ally Program (CAP)

The Corporate Ally Program (CAP) creates an advocacy partnership to provide our real estate business partners with the ability to invest corporate dollars to strengthen the industry and support REALTOR® Party issues campaigns. Funds are invested in political advocacy and issue campaigns at the local, state and federal levels in order to promote an environment conducive to buying, selling and owning real estate. Corporate investments may be made to CAP.

The President’s Circle is a group of REALTORS® who contribute directly to REALTOR®-friendly candidates at the federal level. The President’s Circle Program supports REALTOR® Champions—members of Congress who have made significant achievements in advancing the REALTOR® public policy agenda. The President’s Circle Program allows REALTORS® to contribute beyond RPAC dollars and increase the strength of the REALTOR® voice on Capitol Hill. RPAC Major Investors (those with a current annual investment/pledge of at least $1,000) may invest in the President's Circle Program before May 30 of every year.

RPAC is the REALTOR Party. We Are the REALTOR Party

As a REALTOR, you’re part of something bigger than yourself. It is important to be involved in the real estate community, and to understand how local, state, and national governments affect our industry. One way to engage is to become active in government.

The REALTOR Party is a powerful alliance of REALTORS and REALTOR Associations working to protect and promote homeownership and property investment. The REALTOR Party speaks with one voice to advance candidates and public policies that build strong communities and promote a vibrant business environment.

Now more than ever, it is critical for REALTORS across America to come together and speak with one voice about the stability a sound and dynamic real estate market brings to our communities. From city hall to the state house to the U.S. Capitol, our elected officials are making decisions that have a huge impact on the bottom line of REALTORS and their customers. Through the support of REALTORS like you, the REALTOR Party represents your interests.

Contributions are not deductible for income tax purposes. Contributions to RPAC are voluntary and are used for political purposes. You may refuse to contribute without reprisal and the National Association of REALTORS® or any of its state associations or local boards will not favor or disfavor any member because of the amount contributed. 70% of each contribution is used by your state PAC to support state and local political candidates. Until your state PAC reaches its RPAC goal, 30% is sent to the National RPAC to support federal candidates and is charged against your limits under 2 U.S.C. 441a; after the state PAC reaches its RPAC goal it may elect to retain your entire contribution for use in supporting state and local candidates.
