Dear ACHA Members and Supporters,
I hope this letter finds you safe and in good health during this unprecedented time.
Over the past weeks, ACHA has remained a leader and committed to keeping the CHD community informed. More than 17,000 of you have watched our free webinars addressing COVID-19 or have accessed our COVID-19 FAQ. Through our network of ACHA ACHD accredited centers, and the dedicated leadership of our Medical Advisory Board, ACHA is uniquely positioned to gather information as this situation continues to evolve, and that is what we will strive to do. That is our commitment to you.
As a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, our mission is primarily funded by individuals like you. However, with our in-person Spring Walk for 1 in 100 events cancelled, ACHA will lose a significant amount of revenue. While each walk event is now an ACHA Your Way virtual event and walkers can still participate, we are looking at the potential of a $345,000 loss from April to June tied to the walk cancellations.
While we understand that you may be experiencing many uncertainties right now, we hope that you will consider making a donation. Any amount can make an impact. A donation of $5 or $10 can go a long way when combined with hundreds of others. Or, consider creating a Facebook fundraiser to help raise funds for ACHA.
As always, we greatly appreciate the support of our community. Please remember to take care of yourself, your families, and each other.
Mark Roeder, ACHA President & CEO
