527 Organization

A tax exempt organization in the United States dedicated to supporting or opposing candidates for political office or advocating or opposing certain issues. For example, a 527 organization may be formed to campaign for or against banking regulation. Unless a 527 promotes or denigrates a specific candidate, there are no limits on its contributions or spending. However, 527s must publish the names of their contributors as well as the donations they make.
