Area L Area Health Education Center (AHEC) is a non-profit health education foundation which provides continuing education and training programs for health practitioners and students. The mission of Area L AHEC is to meet the needs of the healthcare workforce serving Edgecombe, Halifax, Nash, Northampton, and Wilson counties by providing educational programs and services in partnerships with academic institutions, healthcare agencies, and other organizations committed to improving the health of the people of North Carolina.
At a 2003 April Area L AHEC Board of Trustees meeting, our trustees approved the establishment of The Friends of Area L AHEC Fund. Area L AHEC had wanted to establish this Fund for a long time, for it realized how important a financial base is for a non-profit corporation. Area L AHEC knows that many organizations today, especially education and healthcare centers, have a foundation or fund that businesses are continuously asked to support. Area L AHEC’s approach in creating The Friends of Area L AHEC Fund is to ask for contributions from individuals who have a special interest in the health of the people of North Carolina, which is the overall purpose of the AHEC program. Monies received to support this Fund will be reserved for special needs of Area L AHEC. With budget cutbacks and other challenging economic situations, as well as uncertainty of grants, Area L AHEC hopes The Friends of Area L AHEC Fund will help us with emergencies and specific programs and will be spent only upon Board approval. Your consideration of sharing a financial contribution with Area L AHEC, as well as your sharing with other individuals the important work and needs of Area L AHEC, would be helpful. Your contribution will be considered a tax-deductible gift by the IRS since Area L AHEC is a non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization. We would value any support.
Thank you. Best Wishes!
