Charitable giving and support for Georgia’s U.S. Senate Republicans in runoff elections leave DOFPAC poised for growth in 2021 after raising over $105,000 since late September

As reported last month on McHenry County Blog, the Defense of Freedom PAC (DOFPAC) continues its success as a start-up since its public launch in late September.

Former IL-14 congressional candidate Catalina Lauf is the executive director of the DOFPAC

Lauf issued a statement highlighting the 3 charities her DOFPAC gave year-end donations of $1,000 each:

“We supported three different veteran organizations!

“Two in the [IL-14] district (one on each end of the district) and one (HunterSeven Foundation) doing great work nationally.”

In addition to the charities, DOFPAC gave two $2,500 campaign contributions to Senators David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler of Georgia for the runoff elections.

For all of 2020, DOFPAC donated to a total of 14 political campaigns.

Locally, Woodstock resident Earl Hughes gave a total of $300 for the entire 2020 calendar year. Illinois-based itemized contributions totaled an additional $750.

Small dollar contributions (less than $200) to DOFPAC made up nearly 69% of the total contributions for 2020 of $105,461.89 (from late September through end of 2020).

As noted last month, DOFPAC started with an initial investment of $5,000.
