What does AMCSI do with the donations we receive?
With the explosive and exciting growth that our organization has experienced in the past three years, our cost of operation has also increased. All donations collected by AMCSI's all volunteer staff & management, will fund continued maintenance and yearly fees of our message boards, & to fulfill our mission & vision statements.* A very small amount will be used for administrative overhead such as postage, printing, etc..

One of our most valued events is our Annual AMC Support Convention held in various cities throughout the US each year.
