Champions for the fraternal movement.
The FSPAC exists to build relationships with members of Congress and amplify the benefits of the fraternal experience for students, alumni/alumnae, the campus community, and our nation.
The organization is governed by a board of directors of about 80 members. The board of directors is responsible for raising money for the PAC and approving candidate contributions. Donors to the FSPAC are individuals who are passionate about our mission and who understand the importance of a strong government relations effort.
Supporting a bipartisan slate of candidates.
FSPAC supports candidates and Members of Congress who stand up for issues of importance to the Greek community, regardless of party affiliation. Most recipients are members of fraternities or sororities but some are not.
The FSPAC aims to give to members of fraternities and sororities in a way that reflects the political make-up in that Congress. In 2018, of the known members of fraternities and sororities in Congress, 63% were Republican and Republicans controlled both chambers. FSPAC gave 60% of funds to Republicans and 40% to Democrats in that election cycle.
In the current Congress, the pool of known Greek members are 52% Republican and 48% Democrat, and each party controls one chamber. As of July 20, 2020, the FSPAC’s election spending for the entire 2019-20 election cycle was 51% Republican and 49% Democratic.
Electing more women to Congress.
The FSPAC makes priority investments in NPC alumnae running for Congress for the first time. We are especially interested in helping women win competitive primaries because we know early money dramatically improves a woman’s chance of winning an election.
The vast majority of Greeks in Congress are NIC alumni, followed by NPHC alumni/ae, then NPC alumnae (thus the focus on helping more get elected).
A partner in advocacy.
The FSPAC is a member of the Fraternal Government Relations Coalition along with the North American Interfraternity Conference, the National Panhellenic Conference and the Fraternity and Sorority Action Fund. The NIC and NPC are primarily responsible for establishing the legislative priorities. Current priorities are published on their websites.
