Greetings Fellow Federationists:

As you are getting ready for Convention, you may 
be wondering what to PAC.  Well, the answer is 
your check book or at least the account and 
routing numbers to your bank account.  The PAC, 
or the Preauthorized Contribution Program, is one 
of the major fundraisers for our 
Federation.  Each year we bring in about 
$360,000.00 to the organization.  It is the 
program through  which we can make easy, monthly 
donations to our national treasury.  These 
general funds go to support our scholarship 
program, our legal advocacy, our public education 
campaigns, and more.  A person can give as little 
as $5.00 a month or more to the Program.  All we 
need is a bank account from which we can withdraw 
money.  We need your bank's name, bank account 
number, and the bank's national routing 
number.  Your bank can give you all of this 
information with one simple phone call.  However, 
it would be best to get a voided check from you 
because that document has all the info we 
need.  So, just throw that check book in your brief case and come ahead!

Individuals aren't the only ones who can 
give.  Any affiliate, chapter, division, or 
Federation group can get on the Program as long 
as you have a bank account, of course.  We 
can  take donations  from savings accounts as 
long as the account permits external withdraws 
and you give the information noted above.  Again, 
we will need your bank's name, your account 
number, and the bank's national, also known as ABA, routing number.

As usual, We will be running a number of contests 
at Convention.  For the NFB affiliate that has 
the most number of people/entities either start a 
new pledge or increase an existing one,, we will 
award the PAC Rat.  The division with the most 
activity will receive the PAC Mule.  At the 
national board meeting, I will be awarding 
special prizes to the state affiliates that have 
had the largest percentage increase over the last 
year, one award will go to a large affiliate and 
another to a smaller affiliate.

Additionally, we will hold a cash drawing at the 
end of convention for two categories of people, 
those who start a new pledge and those who 
increase a pledge.  The individual whose name is 
drawn will receive $150.00 in cash.  There will 
be two drawings, one for the new pledges and one 
for the increases.  However, if we reach our 
convention goal of increasing annualized PAC 
giving to $400,000.00 or more, the cash prizes will increase to $300.00.

I look forward to seeing many of you at 
convention.  For those who can't come, I look 
forward to your participation through other 
means.  For example, I can email you a PAC form 
if you just shoot me a message at the below email.
