First and foremost, THANK YOU. Your dedication as a family physician is the heartbeat of our communities. As the philanthropic arm of the Georgia Academy of Family Physicians, the Georgia Healthy Family Alliance (GHFA) extends its deepest gratitude for your tireless work and your ongoing commitment to the well-being of Georgians.
As the year draws to a close, we find ourselves reflecting on the impactful contributions of family physicians like you. Your support has been instrumental in shaping the health landscape of Georgia, and for that, we are truly thankful.
A Humble Request: Consider a $500 Tax-Deductible Donation
Understanding the demands on your time and resources, we humbly ask you to consider a tax-deductible donation of $500 to the Georgia Healthy Family Alliance. Your contribution will enable us to continue the vital work that GAFP members make possible in local communities across the state.
Your Impact: Grants, Education, and Community Initiatives
Since the inception of our grants programs, GAFP member-sponsored healthcare grants have totaled an impressive $720,000, supporting initiatives that enhance the overall health of Georgians. Over the last 18 months, GHFA funding has allowed us to reach more than 65,000 Georgia students through Tar Wars, our tobacco and vape-use prevention program.
Featured Impact: Ethnē Health Grant
One shining example of the impact of your support is the recent $5,000 grant to Ethnē Health, a Non-Profit medical clinic in Clarkston, GA. This grant has played a crucial role in improving access to healthcare for refugees and immigrants new to Georgia. Ethnē Health, under the leadership of GAFP member Esther Kim, MD, ensures that Clarkston-area children and adults receive quality healthcare with culturally sensitive and language-appropriate services. Your support has facilitated 2,741 medical interpretation calls in forty-seven languages over the past year, breaking down language barriers and providing essential care.
Your Support in Action: Local Initiatives
We rely on the leadership, support, and generosity of family physicians like you to continue supporting organizations such as Ethnē Health. Your contributions also enable us to champion local initiatives like the Diaper Drive and Baby Supply Bank Project, Soccer in the Streets Youth Food Scarcity Project, and Tar Wars.
Together, we are working towards a healthier Georgia, but this journey is only possible with your support.
