Scholarship Fund needs a boost
 
Often prospective attendees to the conference are faced with financial hardships. Michigan Pet Fund Alliance has developed a  scholarship program which enables them to attend for a  $50 fee, with MPFA picking up the remaining expense.

To date we have approved 16 scholarship applications and are running low on scholarship funds. Applications have arrived from shelter and rescue folks from throughout the state, with one common theme: these individuals want to learn cutting-edge information on how to save more cats and dogs in their communities.

Applicants must provide the following: 
  • Financial Background: "Summarize the financial situation that prevents you from paying the Conference Registration fee yourself"
  • Personal Statement: "Indicate your area of interest in animal welfare and what you hope to gain by attending the conference"
Can you help more people attend the conference by donating to the scholarship fund? 

Your tax-deductible charitable giving will have far-reaching results.  Please donate today. Select "Conference Scholarship Fund" from the link here
