Donations to the Caucus 501(c)(4) organization ("the C4") guarantee that the lights stay on in the Caucus office. The C4 also represents the educational arm of the Caucus. Educating voters on the issues and keeping people informed with monthly meetings funded by the C4 represents part of the mission of the Caucus. Donations specifically to the C4 go to items like the monthly rent on the office, the upkeep of computers and electronic equipment, internet access, and snacks for the volunteers. Providing a stable income for the monthly organizational expenses has meant that the Caucus has been in continuous existence since 1975.
