The DANA Triple Threat is a program that acknowledges the generous contributions of DANA members. For approximately 3-4 hours of your salary, you can be a DANA Triple Threat. Each DANA member that contributes a minimum of $75.00 each to the DANA-PAC, CRNA-PAC, and the AANA Foundation (for a total contribution of $225.00) will receive this status. Of course, the minimum of $75.00 to each cause is a suggestion, however, it must be $75.00 or more to each cause to receive the DANA Triple Threat status.
Equally important, the CRNA-PAC (National - AANA) needs you.
Your DANA Board and Committee members has represented YOU on Capitol Hill, educating legislators on all aspects CRNA (who we are, what we do, and how we do it). We know CRNAs are highly-educated, cost-effective, and high-quality anesthesia providers. But others cannot simply "just take our word for it." Proof is power! That is why the AANA Foundation is so critically important to our profession. Without your generous contributions to the AANA Foundation, groundbreaking CRNA research cannot be funded. Please do not forget the AANA Foundation in your pledge. Contributions to the AANA Foundation are tax deductible!
Gifts to PACs are NOT tax deductible. Contributions to both the DANA-PAC and CRNA-PAC are for political purposes. These PAC contributions are voluntary. You may refuse to contribute without reprisal. You are free to contribute more of less than the guidelines suggest and the Associations will not favor or disadvantage you by reason of the amount contributed or the decision not to contribute.

In keeping with the Delaware Association of Nurse Anesthetist (DANA) commitment to help those less fortunate in our community, we are championing two causes this summer. The two projects are: OPERATION TROOPERS HAVE YOUR BACKpack, sponsored by the Delaware State Police, and Kind To Kids Foundation, a local nonprofit supporting foster children.
OPERATION TROOPERS HAVE YOUR BACKpack is a drive requesting a wide-range of school supplies; please see the attached flier for a detailed list of requested supplies. DANA has already purchased for donation 12 backpacks. We are encouraging all our members to help us by filling the backpacks with supplies. If you would like to donate supplies, please contact any Board Member to arrange for the items to be picked up. All supplies are needed by Tuesday August 8, so we can ensure all donations will be distributed before the new school year.
Kind To Kids Foundation helps children in foster care by providing a wide array of services. Often, children are removed from unsafe environments with only the clothes on their backs. DANA is supporting an initiative that provides each child a duffel bag filled with items designed to ease that transition. We are donating monies to purchase 12 duffel bags. We encourage all members to consider supporting this initiative on behalf of DANA. Please see their website for further details.
As always, your generosity is greatly appreciated as we continue to uphold DANA's pledge to support all of those in the communities we serve.
