As Council Member, Ben Kallos, wrote the new full public matching campaign finance system. The new system allows anyone to run on entirely small dollars with every small dollar matched with 8 public dollars. A $10 contribution from a New York City resident becomes $90. With great rewards come great risks, such as personal liability to the city for violations, fines, and funds you may have to repay to the city.
Our team can help you and your campaign every step of the way. From opening your campaign and training your staff to do this on your own to full service where we can take care of it all.
- Political committee formation and filings
- Fundraising filing, compliance, and treasurer services
- Securing public funds payments
- New York City Campaign Finance Board post-election audit support
Forming a committee will require a treasurer and we can provide one for you. Raising money can be tough, but we will make sure every dollar that can be matched gets matched. Sometimes a contribution can get matched with a little work and we can do that follow up. A public funds payment with 90% of the money you need to run can get hung up on the smallest detail and we can work with you to take every step necessary to get paid. Win or lose, once the campaign is over you are in for an audit by the campaign finance board and we can work with you to get violations withdrawn, fines down, and even go to trial.
