How much is Needed
To guarantee that ten of our priority representatives can attend the PAD Conference in Atlanta in 2014, MCC PAD needs to raise USD $10,000 or its equivalent as in-kind contributions. No contribution is too small, pooling our resources and gifts of all sizes enable those with more limited means, often traveling the greatest distances, to attend and participate fully. We Are The Change We Seek!

The cost per person that is needed to support the participation of a Be A PILLAR scholarship recipient is between USD$ 700 and $1,000. The breakdown of these costs is as follows:

Conference Expense Estimated Cost (US Dollars)

ACCOMMODATIONS USD $375 (3 nights @ $125/night, incl tax)
AIRLINE TICKET USD $200 (domestic) up to $1,500 (international)
MEALS USD $60 (estimated for 1 non-conference meal per day @ $20)

It’s easy to give to the Be a Pillar fund. Look for the Be a Pillar section included on the registration form and sign up to do your part, or click “Donate”  to give online!

This conference and the special opportunities it provides can be invaluable for our PAD participants.

Thank you!

If you are not planning to attend the conference, but still wish to participate in the Be a Pillar campaign or if you have questions about the campaign please contact us.
