With a strong joint fundraising effort from states and volunteer InsurPac chairs throughout the country, the Big “I” political action committee (PAC) achieved an impressive $1,026,123 in receipts last year.
This marked the second consecutive year that InsurPac broke the million-dollar mark—and in doing so, the PAC has set the bar high for future campaigns. The Big “I” is grateful to all donors big and small and congratulates all states and young agent committees that worked until the end of the year to make it all possible.
Below is a summary of the 2014 campaign:
- 3,915 donors invested an average of $262 in InsurPac.
- A record-tying number of states (6) raised an average of more than $100 per agency, and will earn InsurPac Eagle Awards at this year’s Big “I” Legislative Conference in April. North Dakota broke its own record by raising an average of $329 per agency, followed by South Carolina ($172), Montana ($138), Louisiana ($121), New Hampshire ($111) and Wyoming ($110).
