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.
Lundgren for City Council 2017 Contribution Policies:
Our campaign is registered with the New York City Campaign Finance Board, and must comply with their rules.
The contribution limit to our campaign by individuals is a cumulative amount of $2,750
If you are a principal, owner, or senior manager of an entity that does business with the City of New York, your contribution limit is $250.
Contributions from corporations, limited liability companies (LLCs), limited liability partnerships (LLPs), and partnerships are prohibited. If we receive a contribution from any of these entities, we must immediately return it to the contributor.
We may accept contributions from individuals if they are U.S. citizens or permanent residents. Only contributions from individual New York City residents are eligible to be matched with public funds.
Contributions from corporations, limited liability companies (LLCs), limited liability partnerships (LLPs), and partnerships are prohibited.
Anonymous contributions are prohibited. If we receive an anonymous contribution, State law requires us to pay that amount to the state comptroller for deposit in the general state treasury.
We may accept cash contributions, but only up to $100 from any single contributor during the election cycle.
We may also accept money order contributions up to the contribution limit. However, only the first $100 of a money order contribution from an individual New York City resident can be matched with public funds.
The best way for us to receive and document contributions is by check. Make sure your check:
- is made payable to “Lundgren for Council 2017”
- has the date and amount of the contribution written clearly.
- has your name and address pre-printed (no starter checks unless they are accompanied by a fully completed contribution card).
- is signed by the contributor.
