ABOUT US

SET vision image

Strengthening Education Together (SET) is a 527 nonprofit, non-partisan political action committee that was founding January 6, 2023 by Davoya Marshall and Adriana Paez. April Smith served as our first treasurer and Alethea Rollins served as our first secretary.

 

SET was developed as a means to raise funds to improve the political climate of our school board and local elections. By creating SET, we are able to promote candidate and ballot measure that fall in line with our mission and values, ultimately improving quality of education for ALL students.

PACs can directly donate funds to their chosen candidate. They can donate $15,000 every year to any national party committee, and an additional $5,000 to any other PAC. At the same time, they can only accept a maximum of $5,000 annually from any individual, firm, corporation, national party committee or PAC.
