AFIT-PAC supports the campaigns of free trade candidates running for the House and Senate. We do so by raising personal contributions from international nameplate auto dealers. In turn, AFIT-PAC makes contributions to the campaigns of members of Congress and candidates who support free trade. Since AFIT-PAC was founded in 1991, we have contributed approximately $15 million to federal candidates and committees.

AFIT-PAC bylaws prohibit contributions to Presidential candidates. All contributions are for Senate and House races.

AFIT-PAC is a political action committee that financially supports federal candidates for Congress who share our philosophy of free and open trade. AIADA is a dealer association, whose goal is to advocate on behalf of international auto dealers before Congress and the Executive Branch.

NADA PAC is a political action committee comprised of both domestic and international auto dealers. They contribute to candidates based on a wide variety of issues that are important to both domestic and international nameplate dealers. They do not make contributions based solely on free trade, as AFIT-PAC does.

AFIT-PAC can accept contributions from U.S. citizens 18 years of age and older, and from other federal political committees.

AFIT-PAC can accept up to $5,000 per calendar year from an individual’s personal funds or up to $10,000 per calendar year from a couple. A federal committee may contribute up to $5,000 per calendar year.

No, contributions to AFIT-PAC are not tax-deductible as charitable contributions for federal income tax purposes.
