It's not too early to think about donating items for the RNA silent auction in Silver Spring, Md.
Your donations help generate funds to provide scholarships for journalists to attend RNA's Annual Conference. Hundreds of reporters have already benefited from scholarships raised through our silent auction, and each one was grateful for the support.
Jaweed Kaleem, formerly of The Huffington Post, was a 2015 scholarship recipient, and his story is like so many others: "The scholarship was invaluable. I would not have been able to get to Philly without it, and I sincerely found the pre-conference to be one of the best parts of any RNA conference of the last few years. The access to such high-profile speakers from the church was very useful for reporting ahead of the pope's visit. The general conference programming was top-notch and diverse and so glad to have been a part of this year's events."
Don't forget... your donations are tax-deductible!
