Get Involved with ACHA
Time, Money, Skill and Advocacy Make a Difference
We’re a community…a resource and a support system for adults who live with congenital heart disease. We are here to educate, inform and connect—and improve the quality of care for people with congenital heart disease. We are the only organization completely committed to the adult congenital heart population. We are growing, expanding and deepening our services and programs.
To achieve our mission, we need your help and your active involvement. Your contributions are the fuel for our programs year round. Every contribution matters.
I choose to donate to ACHA because growing up as a congenital heart disease survivor can feel very isolating. ACHA is an incredible organization in bridging the gap.
I give to ACHA because I can see my dollars at work via the conferences I attend. I have become acquainted with the patients, doctors, caregivers, family members and friends of patients who learn, benefit and enjoy the tangible outcomes of ACHA donor support.
From the ACHA Blog
"It didn’t take me long to recognize the importance of ACHA. The plethora of information and resources in the form of brochures, webinars, this blog, the Heart to Heart Peer Mentors, directory listings, up-to-date legislative information and the work that goes into making sure our voices are heard and that we receive the proper care today and in the future, is priceless. With all of that, there is still much more work to be done to raise awareness and educate those with CHD that proper treatment is necessary to live longer, healthier lives. That’s why I give. I give because there are people out there that have much less than I do, regardless of my circumstances."
