Greetings to all,
This is your affiliate PAC Plan Coordinator Brian Mackey with a PAC Plan
reminder. For those of you that don't know what "PAC" stands for, it stands
for Pre Authorized Contributions. This is a national program where
individuals or a group of individuals can have funds pre-approved to be
contributed to the National Federation of the Blind as little as $5 a month
($0.17 a day). That is the same as five WaWa coffees when they are running
their $1 coffee special during the summer. Your monthly contributions goes
directly into the national treasury for its general fund account. Please
note that you don't need to be a member of the NFB to contribute to the PAC
Through the PAC Plan, the following items are covered:
* Distribution of free literature
* funding the Free White Cane program
* funding the Free Slate & Stylus program
* funding the NFB scholarship programs
* funding the BELL Academy program
* assisting in legal battles such as accessible mail-in voting
* funding to provide free web hosting to state affiliates and national
divisions for their websites through NFBNet
* And so much more.
As of the end of May, Pennsylvania ranked 23rd at $604.00 a month with 25
participants. The participants count included the state affiliate, the
majority of the chapters, the Parents Division, and a number of individual
members. But as Scott LaBarre always says during national convention, "I
want more!" I would love it if Pennsylvania could come out of national
convention at $700 a month.
