PAHS Model United Nations Seeking Donations

For the first time ever, Phoenixville Area High School is sending a group of 20 students to Washington D.C. to participate in the Model United Nations. Unfortunately, due to budget cuts in the district, they are forced to fund the trip themselves. This is where you come in. Through the Phoenixville Community Education Foundation, they are hoping to raise $10,000 by the end of February.

At Phoenixville Area High School, the 20 members of the Model United Nations have formed a dream together. Through rigorous study and prodigious preparation, we have prepared ourselves to attend the annual Model United Nations Conference at George Washington University in Washington, DC.

We are a group of devoted and passionate high school students that unite through our love of politics and international affairs but, despite our dedication, we have hit an obstacle. A lack of funding stands in our way. The conference costs are substantial and, due to recent budget cuts, our school is unable to fund our trip. We are seeking monetary donations. Our fundraising goal is to raise $10,000 by February 29, 2011 in order to meet the national registration deadline.

PAHS Branch Model United Nations has become a sponsored club of the Phoenixville Community Education Foundation (PCEF), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Donations will be accepted by PCEF on our behalf, allowing your contribution to be tax deductible to the fullest extent permitted by the law. Checks should be written to PCEF/Model United Nations, and mailed to 1200 Gay Street Phoenixville, PA 19460.
