Dear members, friends, and family of AMHE,
The Central Executive Committee joins me to ask for your support of AMHE’s 2014-2015 Annual Giving campaign.
It is amazing to all of us how quickly the year has gone by but it would be more daunting if we could not pin down what we have accomplished during the year. At AMHE, we have a long list of accomplishments that we are proud to share. All of these would not have been possible without the help and support of generous and giving supporters such as you! For example, in 2014, with your generous support, AMHE has completed several Haiti missions in Port-au-Prince, Cap-Haitian, Vallee de Jacmel, Léogane, Aquin, and Jeremie. With each mission, AMHE bring much needed health care and relief to the communities in Haiti. In addition, AMHE also have other programs through which we are supporting medical students and residents doing externships in different US hospitals. A list of projects/missions can be found at: http://www.amhe.org/medical_mission.html.
Many of you receiving this letter already know the roles AMHE is playing in underserved communities in the US and in Haiti. Together with the physicians members of AMHE we have all chosen to support those in need of healthcare. We have made this choice for reasons that are personal and individual, but overall there are some core considerations that we all share and these considerations englobe the health and welfare of the communities in which we operate and whom we serve. AMHE combines a supportive community with health knowledge, a giving heart, and a drive to make a difference for those who are less fortunate.
Gifts to the Annual Giving campaign are unrestricted, so they are used each year where funds are most needed. Your contributions will help ensure that the Association have the resources available to continue to deliver services to the communities it is devoted to serve. For example, these funds allow AMHE to organize health missions, supply medical equipment, and medicines to hospitals in remote villages of Haiti where otherwise no means are available for the support AMHE offers. Everything that these funds support is integral to the AMHE’s goal of “Changing lives through better healthcare!” We hope that you will join us in making giving to AMHE a priority when you, or a friend or family you recommend make a charitable contribution to AMHE.
Our goal this year is to raise $100,000.00 dollars with 100 percent AMHE members, family, and friends participation and we are counting on your support. While the amount we wish to raise is of utmost importance but it is even more critical that we achieve a high rate of participation. One way you can help us achieve these goals is to spread the word to an even greater audience. Please tell the world that AMHE is a great Association doing the greatest good to the most underserved in healthcare and making a change in people’s lives.

With sincere gratitude.
