You Can Make a Difference!
Invest in the future of your business with a contribution to the ORLA's Political Action Committee (ORLAPAC). By supporting ORLAPAC, you’re joining hundreds of others in the hospitality industry to amplify your voice with our legislators here in Oregon.
The majority of ORLAPAC's donors are small businesses and individuals who give annually because a strong ORLAPAC is critical to defend tourism funding, pushing key legislation in Salem and fighting meals taxes at the local level.
Did you know Oregon has a unique political tax credit* allowing individuals a no-cost way to support ORLAPAC? This is a dollar-for-dollar credit, not a deduction. Contributions must be dated no later than December 31st, to receive the credit on your Oregon tax return.
Bi-partisan and business minded.
ORLAPAC is a bi-partisan PAC contributing to both legislators who have supported the industry's legislation in Salem and challengers whose election will advance the hospitality industry's legislative agenda. These funds are dedicated to helping elect candidates to office who will work to support the growth of Oregon's hospitality industry.
Strength in numbers.
Owners and operators in the hospitality industry have one of the largest political action committees in the state because industry members understand how important it is to back candidates for office who will work to create a climate for private enterprise to succeed in Oregon.
ORLAPAC-endorsed candidates don't think it is enough the hospitality industry survives in Oregon. Our candidates understand when the hospitality industry is growing, Oregon is growing and when our industry succeeds, Oregon succeeds.
Defending the hospitality industry.
ORLAPAC is the only PAC fighting exclusively for hospitality interests in Salem, but we need your support to succeed. Your contribution allows our PAC to remain one of the largest, most strategically effective political action committees in the state - and one of the strongest political investments you will make in the future of your business.
ADDITIONAL SUPPORT OPPORTUNITIES
Your participation in these events is critical in supporting the PAC and investing in the industry. There are numerous sponsorship opportunities for companies wishing to support the industry and gain valuable exposure in front of hundreds of industry operators. To discuss these opportunities, contact Marla McColly, business development director, at 503.428.8694.
*This is a dollar-for-dollar credit, not a deduction like your home mortgage interest deduction or contributions to a charity. Contributions must be dated no later than December 31st to receive the credit on your Oregon tax return (up to $100 for joint filers and up to $50 per individual). Oregon’s Political Tax Credit is not a refundable credit, so if your taxes are already zero, you won’t get your $50 back.
