The New York City Campaign Finance Board defines "Advances" as
Advance” means a payment for goods or services on behalf of a campaign made with the expectation that the payment will be reimbursed by the campaign. An advance is considered to be an in-kind contribution from the person making the advance until it has been reimbursed by the campaign, and a campaign may not accept an advance from a prohibited source.
