Support your patients and your profession through a PTPAC Donation

The American Physical Therapy Association's Physical Therapy Political Action Committee (PTPAC) provides a mechanism for separate, voluntary contributions to political candidates who support physical therapy. The PAC is a valuable platform for association members and staff who want an opportunity to voice their support or opposition to federal legislation through the election process. 

Please take   a moment to watch the following video for the PTPAC:    https://youtu.be/E9bj0kISRq8 

  • PTPAC supports friends of physical therapy who are running for the U.S. Congress this provides us with engagement opportunities on issues important to our profession.
  • PTPAC distributed more than $1.1 million direct contributions to federal candidates, leadership PACs, and national political party committees. This impacts our ability to make a difference for the profession.
  • Every person, every dollar donation strengthens the impact we have on Capitol Hill for our profession and for our patients. 

Please take a moment to watch this short video on how you can contribute:


For more information, please visit the Physical Therapy Political Action Committee website   here.
