Washington, DCSagac Public Affairs, the National Association of Business Political Action Committees and The Advocacy Association are pleased to release the ninth biennial report on the results of the 2020 election cycle “Trends in Federal Business Political Action Committees" study. This study was conducted between February 17 and March 15, 2021, covering a sample of more than 2,000 federal business PACs to evaluate the top fundraising operations and disbursement activities during the last election cycle.

The Trends report was first developed by Sagac in 2004 to uncover the leading trends in business PAC programming and provide actionable insight for the PAC community.

“The goal of this research, along with all the PAC research Sagac has provided over the last two decades, is to identify the most successful fundraising, communication and political giving tactics being employed in the marketplace,” said Trey Richardson, managing partner of Sagac.

New findings this cycle include insight into how COVID affected PAC fundraising in a presidential election year, best practices for PAC board composition and use, and reactions to the January 6 events at the U.S. Capitol.
