The LeadingAge PA Political Action Committee was established as part of an effort to increase our legislative advocacy and presence in Harrisburg.

A political action committee, or PAC, is simply a group of individuals with common values and goals who combine their resources to financially support candidates running for public office. A PAC supports candidates that represent the interests and views of its members - in our case, nonprofit long-term care providers.

The LeadingAge PA PAC doesn't support candidates based on their political affiliation, but on their record of support for the nonprofit long-term care industry. A candidate's positions on issues that are unrelated to our members' well-being are never taken into account.

Our Work

The LeadingAge PA PAC is a powerful tool that will allow our association to further strengthen and expand its visibility within the state capitol and the Pennsylvania General Assembly.

Through voluntary contributions the LeadingAge PA political action fund can effect powerful change that will positively impact seniors in Pennsylvania, but we need your support to make a true, lasting difference. Here are some of the reasons why your contributions are so important:

  • Legislators face thousands of bills each year. Your PAC dollars are crucial in helping us support candidates and elected officials who understand the long-term care field and share our values as well as concerns.
  • The LeadingAge PA PAC empowers us to have a greater impact on the political process, while allowing us to be more competitive among other associations that may often have conflicting goals.
  • Our PAC is an important tool that gives our members the access and visibility the long-term care field needs in order to have its voice heard in Harrisburg.
  • The LeadingAge PA PAC is a great vehicle to aid in the accomplishment of positive results.
