To: WIGP Coordinating Council <CC@lists.wisconsingreenparty.org>, WI Greens <firstname.lastname@example.org>, email@example.com, 4lakesgreens <firstname.lastname@example.org> I vote yes, on both the proposed Shared Campaigns policy below,
and support giving our full cooperation and support to joining a state sharing campaign. I had not realized how favourable to the states this program had beome. We would have to provide most of the effort, but there have been quite a few of these now,
and they have helped revitalize the participating states. I have withheld my formal full support of this concept to date,
upon reading this discussion of the policy I find that to be a mistake. For our meeting on Sat.,: I would like to propose we discuss this possibility to bring cohesion and expertise
into our efforts to be in contact with our membership. I also would like to propose that we discuss having district lists for each of the CC District reps. Please peruse the material below and let us know what you think,
either here or at the meeting. Monte Letourneau

Section 7-4 Revenue Sharing
7-4.1 National-driven contributions are those that are received through efforts of the GPUS, its staff, contractors and NC. Such contributions shall be considered 'internal funds' rather than 'conduit funds' as defined by the FEC, unless or until they are released to the state party,caucus, or network. For national-driven programs, 70% of the donation will be allocated to the GPUS and 30% to the state party, caucus, or network.
7-4.2 State, caucus, network, and committee-driven contributions are those that are received through efforts of the state party, caucus, network or committee. For these programs, state parties and committees will be allocated 70% of the contribution, and caucuses and networks will be all allocated 90% of the contribution. The GPUS will be allocated the remaining share.
7-4.3 If according to FEC regulations, a state party cannot accept its full share of the money for its own use, the Treasurer and the Fundraising Committee shall consult with the state party treasurer to establish the alternative disposition of the contribution for the state's benefit.
7-4.4 Contributions to special projects are contributions made according to 9-4.3. For these contributions, GPUS will be allocated 5% of the contribution or $500, whichever is less, plus credit card fees incurred.
7-4.5 In reporting revenues due to a restricted fund of a state, caucus, network, or committee, the report shall include the name, address, phone and email of each donor, the date, amount, and method of payment for each donation, and any notes a donor may have sent to the state, caucus, network, or committee. Caucuses, networks, and committees requesting disbursement of funds shall file their requests according to 8-1.6.

Other arrangements may be substituted in coordination with the Fundraising Committee. GPUS shall use these lists only for fundraising and outreach. GPUS shall not share or sell these lists with anyone.

State parties shall use these lists only for fundraising and outreach. State parties shall not share or sell these lists with anyone.
