The 12th Annual PAC’s Peak Challenge—our annual fundraising campaign for the ATPE Political Action Committee (ATPE-PAC)—kicked off Feb. 1. We invite you to join us in donating any amount toward our goal of raising $20,000 for ATPE-PAC by May 31.

With the primary elections quickly approaching, many pro-public education candidates/officeholders are vying to work on our behalf next session on issues such as education funding, teacher retirement, and stopping school vouchers, among other things. To get to Austin, they’ll need our financial support. It is incredibly expensive to run for office. Now is a critical time to donate to ATPE-PAC. You can make a meaningful impact by investing as little as $10 in this important fund that fights for quality public education and your professional interests at the Texas Capitol. 

Need proof of the power of ATPE-PAC? Three-quarters of the pro-public education candidates who received ATPE-PAC donations in the 2020 primaries won their race. That is exactly why we need your financial support today: to bolster our financial means to support more candidates who truly value and respect our work. 

Remember: None of your dues dollars fund ATPE-PAC contributions. To stay funded, ATPE-PAC depends solely on voluntary small donations from ATPE members like us! 

You can also purchase a T-shirt or coffee mug to help with our fundraising efforts. We have some great designs on Bonfire for you to pick from. Bonfire will print and ship the items directly to you. Proceeds of the sales will also benefit PAC, so take a look! 

Donate today online or by texting “ATPEPAC” to 76278!


ATPE-PAC solicits contributions only from ATPE members, employees, and their families. Participation in ATPE-PAC is voluntary. Please do not print or forward this information using school district resources.
