Contribute

Green Party candidates don’t take contributions from corporations or corporate sponsored PACs*. We depend on the generosity and support of those individuals who share our Green values, principles and vision for a just, democratic, nonviolent and sustainable society.

Green Team Committee / Jimenez for Attorney General Contribution Policies: NY State election law permits cumulative contributions of up to $41,100 per individual, corporation, and PAC (Political Action Committee), and $275,417 per family to a candidate for Attorney General. However, believing the state limits to be too high and giving undue influence to the wealthy and corporate interests, the Green Team Committee is limiting the cumulative contributions it will accept to the Federal election law limits: $2,600 per individual, $5,000 per PAC (political action committee). The Green Team Committee does not accept contributions from for-profit businesses (including sole proprietorships and partnerships) or from corporate sponsored PACs. The Green Team Committee will accept contributions from the PACs of democratic people’s organizations, including labor unions, cooperatives, and peace, environmental and community organizations.

*”Greens reject corporate contributions because we don’t believe corporations deserve the same political rights as “natural persons” (real human beings). Corporations have too much influence over the political system because they’ve been given “personhood” status by certain Supreme Court decisions, most recently Citizens United in 2010. It would be hypocritical for the Green Party and Green candidates to accept checks from corporate PACs while opposing the right of corporate PACs to write checks for parties and candidates. The fact that there are some well-behaved corporations and that not all corporate contributions are corrupting is besides the point.”
