Political Fundraising

Don’t Show Me the Money

  • The Hatch Act prohibits a Postal Service employee from hosting a political fundraiser, inviting anyone to a political fundraiser, or collecting contributions to a political fundraiser for a partisan political party, candidate, or group.
  • Don’t engage in partisan political fundraising on or off the clock at work or at home.

Media stories about postal employees violating the Hatch Act undermine the public’s trust and confidence in the Postal Service. Customers ship with us because they trust us. Maintaining the public’s trust is smart business.

Contact the Ethics Office (ethics.help@usps.gov) for more information about the Hatch Act.
