TO    Jeff Wilkinson, Chairman
           Richland County Republican Party Central Committee

You have requested an advisory opinion on the following question:

Is it permissible for volunteers from among the members of a political party to render services for a corporation and have the proceeds which are paid for the services of the members by that corporation go to the party treasury?

SYLLABUS: It is impermissible for the members of a political party to render services for a corporation as volunteers on behalf of a county political party and have the proceeds, which are paid for the services of the members by that corporation, go to the party treasury.  Such a payment by the corporation would be a contribution as defined in R.C. 3717.01(B)(5).
