Dear Supporters of PCDN
Thank you again for very generously making a payment to support PCDN, we truly appreciate it. Your support will help PCDN continue to grow and thrive as we plan to expand our work in several areas including:
To date about 900 people out of 35,000 have made a payment (which is less than 3.0% of our membership. Our goal is to reach 40% of membership supporting PCDN, in any amount). Please help us increase the number of people who assist PCDN.
As a recent graduate, I have found PCDN to be an invaluable resource that provides opportunities to network, learn and grow as a professional. . It is exciting to learn about the research and programs that are being developed to mitigate conflict and promote constructive dialogue. I support PCDN because it fosters an environment of collaboration and community.
Thanks for your generous support of PCDN, it is much appreciated and glad to hear you find the network of benefit to your ongoing professional development.
I think that before receiving it must be giving. So I believed I had to give my support to the PCDN as soon as I expect receiving the informational support from it in the future, and also because I've got from the network some info I needed before.
Although I never applied for a grant or scholarship announced in the PCDN, I did consider to support the network financially, immediately upon I returned to a paid job after 3 years of volunteering as a president of a charity. Information available from the PCDN emails is very important for those who are working or planning to work in the development sector in any part of the world. I often forward PCDN's grant or scholarship announcements to the individuals and organizations who might be interested to apply. And, thanks to the PCDN, I've accessed a number of publications that are within my professional and research interests.
There are not so many networks similar to the PCDN. So I am planning to continue my support, even if it would be quite modest. Just I hope my and the other PCDN members' contribution will result in the further development and flourishing of the network. And I want this network to exist and to flourish.
Thank you for your generous support of PCDN, it is much appreciated, as is your feedback. We hope that you find the information, contacts and inspiration from PCDN of benefit to your work.
We would appreciate if you could also let others know about the network.
Many things in life we take for granted... These things just happen to always be there, so they become the least of our worries. We never imagine not having them, so, I suppose the less we contemplate how we are enriched by them. PCDN is there before I turn on my email - at least five to ten times daily informing me of something I didn't know – news; current events about our world, the UN, world peace, the practice of conflict management and peaceful resolution… For me, PCDN is ‘fraternal’... it informs us of our profession - giving us world views on many perspectives... Think about it...what professional association can you join for $19.95? Common! This is a pretty damn deal...
Thanks for your very kind feedback and support, it is much appreciated. Support from PCDN members is crucial to helping us to grow, thrive and provide this unique platform for engagement, learning and action. We encourage everyone (individuals and organizations) to consider what they can afford to give to help us (and of course realize not everyone can which is why we have the free option).
I love the information I receive through PCDN daily. It is a site worth supporting!
Thanks for your support, it is much appreciated.
I love the way the PCDN synthesizes various disciplines and perspectives around peace. I enjoy sharing many things I learn about here with my students. I have enjoyed participating in challenges I have learned about through the network. The work is essential and the network is vital. I am honored to be a member and will continue to support your awesome efforts! Thanks PCDN Team!
Thank you for the very kind words and feedback, much appreciated. If there are any specific programs or opportunities you learned about via PCDN please let us know.
Thank you Craig
I am one of the members who does not do the payment yet. I do not want to lose the connection with PCDN. I want to send US$ 25 , but it seems that the transfer fee is bigger than the amount I plan to send to PCDN.
I hope I can fine the way how to send the fee from Aceh, Indonesia. I am planning to go to Canada tomorrow on May 31. May be I can ask my friend to do the transfer from there.
Please advice me with this.
Thanks. We know the intl wire fees are very high and some people cannot afford to pay or are located in countries where it is too expensive. That is why we are keeping the free option as we want to ensure everyone has access. If you can send a payment via Canada great, otherwise just request a free renewal.
