PNHP-NY Metro’s Advisory Board has stepped up to launch a Fall Matching Fund - every dollar donated below will be matched, up to $20,000!
Please donate below!
This matching-gift opportunity has been made possible thanks to our incredible Advisory Board. Made up of an inspiring team of physicians, activists, researchers, social workers, nurses, students, and more, our Advisory Board is essential to the smooth functioning of the NY Metro Chapter. With contributions ranging from political expertise to fundraising prowess and networks that empower our programming, we could not be more thankful for their participation in our work.
In light of the financial challenges currently facing our Chapter, our Advisory Board has taken action to raise the essential funds required to continue our advocacy efforts and sustain our invaluable staff members, Morgan Moore and Mandy Strenz.
Morgan and Mandy are the backbone of our Chapter, and having two dedicated full-time staff members has significantly boosted our capacity to advance our mission. Over the past year, their efforts have led to significant accomplishments, including:
🎯 Developing and executing a Universal Healthcare Legislative Advocacy Fellowship to train a new generation of health workers and students to be leaders in single payer advocacy.
🎯 Increasing outreach to professional organizations and unions, and strategizing with coalition partners to promote the NY Health Act.
🎯 High quality monthly educational forums with focuses ranging from lessons to be learned from the Indian Health System to the current attacks on the LGBTQIA+ community and the resulting health challenges, especially to the transgender community.
🎯 Enhancing collaboration with movement partners to advance health justice initiatives.
🎯 Creating relationships with state and federal legislators to educate them about the dangerous attempts to privatize Medicare that are diverting public tax dollars away from care and into corporate pockets.
Please consider contributing to the Matching Grant below - keep in mind that for each dollar donated, your contribution goes twice as far, thanks to the generosity of our Advisory Board. As always, donations are tax deductible and go directly to supporting our programming and maintaining both Morgan and Mandy on our team. We cannot carry on this work without your support.Donate
