Why Contribute to ACC PAC?
  • 100% of your personal contributions are used to support the election of pro-physician candidates to Congress
  • Currently, only 7% of our members contribute to ACC PAC
  • Other specialty groups have better-funded PACs, giving them an advantage at the decision making table: more funds = greater access
give what you can but give
Give What You Can but GIVE!
  • "$1,000 from 1,000." We need 1,000 individuals committed to ACC’s 2009 legislative agenda to contribute $1,000.
  • That’s just $84.00/month! (You can pay in installments!)
  • If you can’t give $1,000, give what you can!
