Due to the tragic hurricanes that have devastated Puerto Rico, the SDPA have canceled their 15th Annual Fall Dermatology Conference that was to take place there next month. In response to the unfortunate events, the DPAF along with the SDPA have decided to unite and contribute to the recovery efforts of the island and its people.
The DPAF and SDPA will be matching all donations dollar-for-dollar up to $5,000 each which will come to a total match of up to $10,000. One hundred percent of the contributions and the matching funds will go towards Americares. Americares specializes in emergency response programs which prepare and respond to natural disasters. Of the funds donated to Americares 97% will be used for relief efforts while only 3% will go to administrative fees and overhead charges.
All contributions are tax-deductible and donors will receive an individualized receipt for their tax records. We will be taking donations until November 12th. Please help us reach our $10,000 fundraising goal.
