Why should I donate to COMPAC and the SDC?
CMS’s ability to advocate for physicians and our unparalleled reputation at the Colorado Capitol wouldn’t be possible without physician support of COMPAC and the SDC.

There is still time to step up to the challenge by the COMPAC Board of Directors for all physicians and friends of medicine to contribute to COMPAC and the SDC during Physician Giving Days, ending this Friday, Dec. 10. Contributors will be entered into a raffle for a chance to win branded apparel with our new logos. Visit cms.org/contribute today!

Your contributions to COMPAC and the Small Donor Committee support pro-physician candidates.
