Q: What is the Voluntary PAC Contribution?
Your county Farm Bureau board of trustees has approved asking each individual county Farm Bureau member for a voluntary contribution to the Ohio Farm Bureau Federation, Inc. Agriculture for Good Government Political Action Committee (OFBF-AGGPAC). Your voluntary contribution can be added to your check for membership dues and will be transmitted to OFBF-AGGPAC by your county Farm Bureau.
Contributions are strictly voluntary. Any guidelines for member contributions are merely suggestions, and a member is free to contribute more or less than the suggested amount. No member will be favored or disfavored by reason of the amount of his or her contribution or decision not to contribute. All OFBF-AGGPAC contributions are subject to the prohibitions and limitations of the Ohio and Federal Election Campaign Laws.
Contributions or gifts to OFBF-AGGPAC are not deductible for Federal Income Tax Purposes. OFBF-AGGPAC cannot use corporate money to support any candidate or party. Corporate contributions will be used for OFBF-AGGPAC’s administrative expenses.
Q: Why do some counties have different rates?
Ohio Farm Bureau is organized at the local, state and national level. Individual families join their county Farm Bureau, and each of the 86 county Farm Bureaus have joined the Ohio Farm Bureau Federation. The county Farm Bureau has the authority to determine membership classification and dues amount, as is described in the Code of Regulations.
Q: I already paid. Why did I get another invoice?
If you have already submitted your payment, thank you and please ignore the notice. In some cases, we experience a delay in processing due to a large volume of memberships. Please wait up to 7 business days and then contact us with questions.
