NACPAC FAQ's

Q. What is the National Action Committee (NACPAC)?
A.
NACPAC is

the nationís largest pro-Israel political action committee of approximately 50 such committees nationally. Political action committees are entities first established by Congress in the early 1970s to enable like-minded individuals to associate and pool their small contributions to political candidates who share their views. NACPAC is allowed to contribute, in some cases, as much as $15,000 to a political candidate who believes, as NACPAC and its members believe, that a strong US-Israel alliance is good for . . . America!   NACPAC was founded in 1980 and is based in South Florida. NACPAC raises funds from annual membership dues, which are pooled with other members' dues to enable large, meaningful "impact" contributions to our pro-Israel Congressional friends.
