AAPCCA Hardship Fund Needs Your Help

The AAPC Chapter Association (AAPCCA) Hardship Fund is currently out of money, and we need your help. The fund was established to assist AAPC members with membership renewals and preservation of credentials in times of financial difficulty due to an unexpected hardship.
Unfortunately, applications for assistance quiltwill be suspended until funds are replenished. How will this be accomplished? It is all through donations-paying it forward from our own members and local chapters.
If you are attending HEALTHCON April 10-13, be sure to stop by the quilt donation table in the exhibit hall. AAPC member, Jeanne Gershman, has handmade a quilt that will be given away in a charity raffle for the Hardship Fund. Raffle tickets will be available for $1 for one ticket or $5 for six tickets. 100% of the proceeds will be given to the scholarship fund!
Members not interested in the quilt or who will not be attending HEALTHCON can send donations to the address below. No amount is too small—everything helps!
Checks may be made payable to the AAPCCA Hardship Scholarship Program. Mail to:

    Maybe it would be a good idea for people that are not attending the Healthcon be given an opportunity to purchase raffle tickets. There are probably more members that are not attending that would probably purchase tickets for such a beautiful handmade quilt. Just a suggestion.

  2. Aaron Koral says:

    Donations would be a lot simpler if AAPC had a PayPal button to make donations online via the AAPC website. I don’t use checks…sad!

  3. Kelley says:

    Can you expand on how the people submitting hardship applications are vetted? I would like to give, but would like more information on the vetting process for these applications.

    It would be helpful to be able to make an online donation in lieu of mailing in a check. Is this possible? I am quite sure more people would donate if there was an online option for doing so.
