Contribute to VOTE-COPE to support political action

PSC/CUNY COPE is the PSC’s Committee on Political Education—the political action arm of our union and part of the non-partisan VOTE COPE program supported by hundreds of thousands of union members from our state and national affiliates, NYSUT, and AFT. COPE contributions are voluntary and only PSC/CUNY members may contribute. To contribute to COPE, you MUST be either a citizen or permanent resident (green card holder) of the United States. There are several ways to give to VOTE COPE outlined below.

How to Contribute to PSC/CUNY COPE

  • Active CUNY employees: Sign up for regular payroll deductions.
  • Retirees and union-represented Research Foundation Employees: Make a one-time contribution. (Members can give these one-time payments as often as they want. The minimum contribution is $25.)
  • One-time contributions can also be made by check.
  • Make checks payable to PSC/CUNY COPE
  • Mail checks to: Attn: Membership Department, Professional Staff Congress, 25 Broadway, 15th Fl., New York, NY 10004.
