Ways to Contribute
IBAT's Political Action Committees play an increasingly important role in providing campaign contributions to those candidates who understand and support our industry. Don't sit on the sidelines. Do your part to keep independent community banking strong in Texas.
You can do this by participating in:
- Annual Auction - Help raise funds for the IBAT political action committee (PAC) by donating to the PAC Auction, held annually at the IBAT convention. The IBAT PAC is exclusively dedicated to promoting the community banking industry.
- Bank PAC Drives - IBAT asks all members to conduct a Bank PAC Drive each year. The IBAT Leadership Division is making its long-range goal to see that each IBAT member bank conducts a PAC drive with its directors, officers and employees.
- 500 for the Future - an ambitious goal to raise the annual giving to the PAC to $500,000 by 2020. We’ve made it easier than ever before to contribute, with automated monthly contributions from your credit or debit card (bank ACH coming in 2016).
