  •  Volunteer (none)
    AFAIK, you can volunteer any amount of your time to a campaign without it being considered an in-kind contribution. If you had expenses (ie, had to lay out your own cash), that would be considered in-kind.

    If Bob Shrum wanted to donate his time to a campaign, he could do so, even though he might otherwise charge a zillion bucks. (Though this would come a lot closer to his actual value - ie, $0.)

    •  one more question (none)
      thanks - I'd been wondering about this issue generally.  One more question:

      an ad agency couldn't "donate" its service to a candidate could it?  The rules are different for individual vs. corporate contributors?

      •  FEC (none)
        I don't know for certain, but you are probably right. I'd suggest checking out the FEC website. They actually have a few decent brochures about what kinds of contribs are allowed and what are not.
