The Political Contribution Refund (PCR) is a state program in which any eligible Minnesota voter may contribute up to $50 (or $100 per couple), once a calendar year, to a party unit or candidate for a state office and have their contribution refunded by the MN Department of Revenue.

An individual qualifies if they are an eligible MN voter. They do not need to be a registered voter.

Yes, SD37 qualifies! We are a DFL party unit registered with the Minnesota Campaign Finance Board. You can be refunded up to $50 for an individual (or $100 per coupon) for donations you make to SD37.

  • Donate $50 to SD37 (or with your spouse donate $100!). We accept checks (payable to ‘DFL Senate District 37’) and we can accept credit cards either in person or through Act Blue.
  • Within a couple weeks after you donate, you will receive a receipt from SD37.
  • Once you have your receipt, fill out the Political Contribution Refund Application and send it to: Minnesota Department of Revenue, Political Contribution Refund, St. Paul, MN 55146-1800.
  • You will receive your refund from the Minnesota Department of Revenue within a couple months.
