FPHA Foundation – You Can Make a Difference FPHA Foundation is a participant in the 2013-2014 Florida State Employees Charitable Campaign (FSECC). It is located under the “Independent Unaffilated Agencies” category #6062 on page 86 of this years brochure. All donations to the FPHA Foundation will be used to support Educational Opportunities and Scholarships. Thank you for your continued support as a member.
The FPHA Foundation is the 501(c)(3) arm of FPHA and is the organization that plans the educational meetings, seeks grants, provides services to other health care organizations and gives scholarships to public health graduate and undergraduate students (more than $26,000 in the past 10 years). We ask that you consider making a tax deductable donation to the FPHA Foundation. You can designate that it be used specifically for scholarships, meeting support or leave it unspecified to use where needed by the Foundation. Donations do not have to be large. If every FPHA member sent in just $5, think of the impact that could have. That is less than the cost of lunch at most places. And you do not need to be a member to donate. In these current economic times, we need to remember how much we have to be thankful for in our lives and how we can make a difference in someone else’s life. The FPHA Board again thanks those of you who have already given to the FPHA Foundation this past year and encourages others to add it to your “gift list” for 2013 and 2014. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for information or to donate.
