Anyone wanting to attend a ladies luncheon with Melania Trump, or a candlelight dinner with President-elect Donald Trump and Vice-President-elect Mike Pence might be in luck, provided you're willing to shell out mega bucks.

The Trump inaugural committee has released its initial offerings to highrolling donors, and for a cool $1 million, supporters will be guaranteed prime access to the new leadership as it prepares to take over the White House.

According to a copy of the "58th Presidential Inaugural Committee Underwriter Benefits" brochure, obtained by the Centre for Public Integrity, huge perks are on offer in exchange for six and seven-figure contributions.

The brochure breaks down what you can get if you donate between $25,000 and $1 million.


As is the custom for presidential inaugurations, the package deals progressively increase in cost, offering a range of access, events, and tickets, depending on the amount given.

For the major money, donors will get eight tickets to a luncheon with Cabinet appointees and congressional leadership, an "intimate" dinner with the Vice President-elect and his wife, lunch with the ladies of the first families, tickets to the victory reception, as well as tickets to an "elegant" "candlelight dinner" featuring "special appearances by" Trump, future First Lady Ms Trump, Pence and his wife, Karen Pence. It will also get you tickets to the parade, swearing in concert and black-tie ball.

The lowest-priced offering, at $25,000, guarantees you two tickets to the Inaugural Parade, the "entertainment-filled" victory reception, admission to the inaugural concert and fireworks show and the black-tie ball.

The brochure also offers various versions of the package for the $500,000, $250,000 and $100,000 price points. All the packages include travel bookings and tickets to various events.

Trump's inaugural committee has said it will not accept money from registered lobbyists, in line with the President-elect's ban on hiring lobbyists for his nascent administration.

For his first inauguration in 2009, President Barack Obama set stricter limits on donations, holding individual donors to $50,000 each and taking no money from corporations or labour unions, as well as none from lobbyists and some other groups.

Plenty of corporate executives, though, gave individually and often at the maximum amount.

Then, for Obama's 2013 inauguration, donor solicitations obtained by The Associated Press also sought $1 million donations.

The release of the Trump inauguration donor packages comes amid reports of civil rights activists planning major protests at the January 20 inauguration in Washington, DC.

Officials from are predicting that "hundreds of thousands" of protesters will descend on the nation's capital in mid-January, according to the New Yorker, which referred to the trend as "a gathering storm."

The Women's March on Washington is also planned for the day following the inauguration and includes a major rally at the Lincoln Memorial, followed by a long march down Pennsylvania Avenue.

"We stand together in solidarity with our partners and children for the protection of our rights, our safety, our health, and our families - recognising that our vibrant and diverse communities are the strength of our country," the group's official Facebook page says.

"The rhetoric of the past election cycle has insulted, demonised, and threatened many of us - women, immigrants of all statuses, those with diverse religious faiths particularly Muslim, people who identify as LGBTQIA, Native and Indigenous people, Black and Brown people, people with disabilities, the economically impoverished and survivors of sexual assault.

"We are confronted with the question of how to move forward in the face of national and international concern and fear."
