Yes, it’s true, the East Providence Republicans want your money!
If you would like to make a personal financial contribution by mail to support the work of the East Providence Republican City Committee, please send your personal check or money order, payable to “EPGOP” to us at:
c/o 66 Merritt Road
East Providence, RI 02915
Per Rhode Island election and campaign finance law, individuals are limited to contributing a maximum of $1000.00 per calendar year to the East Providence Republican City Committee. If you would like to make a direct contribution to any specific candidate or campaign, that is between you and your checkbook.
Along with your most generous contribution to the EPGOP, please include a note stating your FULL NAME, STREET ADDRESS, TELEPHONE NUMBER, EMPLOYER AND OCCUPATION. Per state election law, we are required to collect this information from all donors. We will NOT cash your check if you do not include the above required information. If you wish, you may also include additional contact information, such as an e-mail address or cellular phone number.
Political contributions are NOT considered “charitable donations” and are NOT tax deductible for federal or state income tax purposes. Contributions from corporations, businesses, and foreign nationals CANNOT and WILL NOT be accepted (so don’t even try!). By law, we are only permitted and will only accept personal or political action committee (PAC) donations! That’s it!
If you have any additional questions about the East Providence Republican City Committee, please e-mail EPGOP Chairman Robert Carlin or write to us at the above address. We greatly look forward to hearing from you — and to cashing your personal check! Please be assured that whatever you can afford to contribute will be put to good use! Thank you very much!
