IVCA-PAC Closes Successful 2008 Campaign

December 17, 2008

CHICAGO - “ Thanks to the efforts of the IVCA-PAC board, IVCA-PAC has exceeded its 2008 member contribution goal of $75,000 with commitments totaling $76,500. To date, $68,500 of these contributions have been received. Thank you to the 32 firms that contributed.

This represents 51 percent of our investor firm membership base. In 2008, the IVCA made $61,250 in campaign contributions to candidates and legislators interested in learning more about venture capital and private equity.

In most cases, these contributions were made at a luncheon/dinner that allowed us to discuss at length the industry and issues that concern us and to hear the legislator perspective on current events and how they might impact us.

Our goal is to have 100 percent of our investor membership contribute at some level. If your firm has not contributed to date, please consider a contribution now for 2008 or in 2009.

With your support, IVCA-PAC will continue to:

  • Show support to individuals who have demonstrated an interest in our industry and are supportive of increasing private equity and venture capital investment in Illinois,
  • Support legislators on a bipartisan basis, and
  • Work to inform and educate legislators on IVCA issues.
