Want to set your lobbying up for success? 

If you want an easier way to raise donations, inform supporters, and manage your website, political action committee software may be for you. 

That’s because it eliminates most of the administrative work when it comes to managing members, payments, your website, events, and more, allowing you to focus on what’s important — supporting the right candidates. 

If you’re wondering whether this type of software can help you out, you’ve come to the right place. In this post I’ll cover:

(If you're looking for political campaign management software, check out this post instead.) 


What is Political Action Committee Software?

Political Action Committee Software is an all-in-one tool that can handle most of the administrative tasks for your committee while saving you time and money. It’s usually comprised of components like:

  • Easy Website Builder: create and update your cycling club’s website with no tech experience necessary.
  • Online Event Registration: create and promote events with online registration, attendance tracking, and payments, plus automated event reminder emails.
  • Simplified Online Payments: automate membership fees, registrations, renewals, and merchandise payments.
  • Robust Contact Database: maintain detailed records of all your members in an easy-to-search online database that you can access from a desktop or mobile device.
  • Online Store: sell merchandise and more by setting up a simple online store with online payments.
  • Professionally Designed Emails: send professionally designed newsletter and email communications to your members and administrators.
  • Exclusive Member Login: allow members to create their own password protected profiles and access exclusive resources on your website.

All these components are part of a broader grouping of software called membership management software.
