We are working on preparing for our next legislative push towards pay parity in 2021. If each OANP member gives just $20 each month, more if you are doing fabulously, every month, we can plan and budget our campaign contributions, and in a year's time we will have also built up a significant political war chest. We are a small profession, yet our strength still comes through the power of our numbers.
WE NEED YOUR HELP! AND IT DOESN’T COST YOU ANYTHING!

It’s a Refundable Tax Credit***
If you owe the state of Oregon more than $50/$100 for your taxes, you may deduct that entire $50/$100 donation from the taxes that you would have paid the state. Direct your tax dollars toward better health care!
Political Action Committee (PAC) contributions are 100 percent refundable from the amount you owe on your state of Oregon income tax returns, up to $50 (filing singly) or $100 (married filing jointly). This is a tax credit, not a deduction, so is taken directly off of your taxes owed. Take full advantage of using “tax-owed” dollars to fund the Friends of Naturopathic Medicine PAC! Please consult your tax advisor about whether you qualify for the tax credit.
