With a new express checkout system, lower processing fees than ActBlue and a new monthly giving option, JStreetPAC 2.0 is a powerful new platform to amplify our political impact.
Since 2008, thousands of J Street supporters have used both JStreetPAC and the new J Street Action Fund to join our collective mission to elect more pro-Israel, pro-peace, pro-democracy candidates – from primaries right through to elections and re-elections.
Together, we’re making clear that there is absolutely no contradiction between supporting Israel’s secure, safe, democratic future and standing up for human rights, international law, Palestinian freedoms and diplomacy-first US foreign policy.
Ahead of the 2024 cycle, we’re thrilled to be launching a brand new home for JStreetPAC online.
Our team has consulted extensively with donors and supporters to deliver a completely overhauled design and a slew of new features. We’re thrilled to deliver a powerful new platform to grow our movement, bring new members into the fold and transform our politics for the better.
If you have any further questions or feedback, please don’t hesitate to send us an email.
More Impact, Less Overhead: Industry Beating Processing Fees
JStreetPAC has negotiated competitive payment processing rates, more competitive than some campaigns themselves. Contributing through our website now means more money goes directly to your selected campaign.
ActBlue, the industry leading processor, charges a 3.95% fee for every transaction.
JStreetPAC beats them. Fees are now just 2.2% + 30c for non AMEX credit or debit cards and 3.5% for AMEX cards. Our new, easy-to-use ACH bank transfer option carries a processing fee of just 0.8% capped at $5. Of course, you can also mail a check and avoid all online processing fees.
We expect these specially negotiated rates will deliver an additional $100,000 or more to our candidates per cycle compared to industry standard payment systems.
Your New One-Stop Shop: Express Checkout
You asked for it, we’re delivering. With our new express checkout page you can add candidates, edit donation amounts, and move directly to payment on one screen in just seconds.
You can still scroll through candidates in our newly updated search page and browse fully revamped candidate biographies. You can access the candidate search page here.
Sustained Support: Monthly Giving Options
Progress is a marathon, not a sprint. Sustained monthly donations allow campaigns to budget ahead, invest in organizing and ensure they have what it takes to win.
Our new monthly giving options are fast to add, easy to adjust and straightforward to cancel.
You can now set a monthly payment amount for every candidate – or to JStreetPAC itself – from within the checkout screen. You can view, edit or cancel your monthly payments from your user profile page.
You’re in Control: New Profile Management Tools
JStreetPAC’s new login process means you can gain access faster and for longer than ever before, and we’ve also introduced a range of new profile management features.
Your profile page shows your donation history and allows you to update your details, add and remove payment methods, and view, edit and cancel recurring contributions.
