Q: What is the Future Effect?

Future Effect is a Political Committee that provides Floridians an opportunity to get involved in the legislative and political process on behalf of Florida’s children. 

Q: WHAT IS A POLITICAL COMMITTEE?  

A Political Committee (PC) is an entity organized according to state and federal law for the purposes of advocacy efforts and supporting candidates for public office.  Many PC’s represent businesses, labor and other ideological interests.  Future Effect has been formed to focus on improving the quality of Florida’s Child Welfare System.

Q: WHY IS FUTURE EFFECT IMPORTANT?

Policymakers who understand issues important to Florida’s Families and Florida’s Child Welfare System make more informed decisions when developing public policy. Future Effect is an important resource that directly supports candidates with information and financial support. This type of political activism sends a strong, collective message that Future Effect members are an involved and active group that merits candidates’ attention on child welfare and other issues that impact Florida’s Families.

Q: Where does my money go?    

The funds we raise here at Future Effect are used to shed light on issues that are important to Florida’s families and to support campaigns and candidates for local and state office.  We support policymakers who have demonstrated their belief in a stronger, safer, brighter future for the children in Florida’s Child Welfare System.

Q: IS MY CONTRIBUTION TAX-DEDUCTIBLE?

A contribution to a PAC is not tax-deductible.  Because it is a political contribution and not a charitable one, the Federal Election Commission (FEC) does not allow a PAC contribution to be deducted.

Q: IS FUTURE EFFECT A PARTISAN ORGANIZATION?

No.  Future Effect is committed to supporting programs and candidates running for state and local office regardless of their political affiliation – so long as they remain focused on bettering the lives of those in the Child Welfare System.
