If you would like to make a donation, you can do so as you progress through your chapter registration or you can visit the Community page on the website. It is an available product, select the product by clicking ADD and it will then allow you to enter a donation amount. The cash amount is left open for you to fill in any dollar value you wish to donate. Thank you in advance.
