PMAA Marketers Defense Fund

PMAA established the Marketer Defense Fund, sometimes referred as the 535 Fund or MDF, as a method to obtain corporate donations for priority projects. MDF funds can be used to cover some aspects of a political event. They can also be used for public relations campaigns related to a legislative initiative. For example, 2008 monies from the MDF were used to create the program Stop Oil Speculators (SOS). MDF monies were also used to fund an economic study on the cost benefits of automatic temperature compensation.

PMAA staff performs 100 percent of the fundraising activity for the MDF so that PMAA directors and association executives can focus on PAC fundraising which is certainly more difficult and more important.
