Monthly Giving Program

Consider this: if just 1% of the nearly 2 million adults with CHD made a monthly gift of just $10, the Adult Congenital Heart Association (ACHA) would receive about $2.4 million a year in new revenue. That's huge! As a non-profit organization, monthly gifts don't just keep the lights on, they create stability. When you give monthly, you're making an investment in ACHA's long-term financial well-being. 

 

Give Monthly Now

 

Our monthly donors give for different reasons, but all share a commitment to building a sustainable future for ACHA by giving monthly.

Meet a few of our Monthly Donors! 

Jennifer Walker, Adult with CHD

"ACHA is very special to me. My parents and I found out I was born with a bicuspid aortic valve when I was 5 years old and I've followed up with a congenital cardiologist ever since. Because of my defect, I'll require lifelong care. I've made so many connections through ACHA events that I'll forever be grateful for. I hope to see ACHA continue to spread awareness about the necessity of quality care for adults living with heart defects. As a college student, I see the needs of ACHD patients in my age group and know the amount of work that needs to continue to improve outcomes for these individuals."

Kasie Cash-Maslyn, Adult with CHD

"I was a child with a rare CHD who just aged into an adult with one. Continuing comprehensive care throughout adulthood is vital yet sadly (and statistically) wanes as children age. I donate monthly to ACHA since this mirrors my life; I will always have healthcare related to my CHD, it’s not a one-time fix."

Hal Smolanoff, Friend of an adult with CHD

"My good friend, Kevin, has been dealing with CHD his entire life (now 43 years). It was only recently we found out that had he been monitored by the right doctors all this time, he very possibly could be in a different situation right now. That is why our family donates to ACHA. Awareness is everything. Now that more procedures are likely needed, research and improvements in this field are a necessity. We donate for Kevin, his wife, his 5 kids, and for everyone who has been touched by their family."

Dr. Mike McMullan, ACHA Medical Advisory Board Member

"As director of the ACHD program at the University of Mississippi Medical Center, as well as having a sister born with a heart defect who was never able to reach adulthood, helping those with congenital heart disease to live long, healthy, and fulfilling lives is my goal. Money given to the ACHA is directly used to improve research and clinical care, collaboration between providers as well as patients, and awareness throughout the general population for this unique group of patients. Making a monthly donation to ACHA is one way that I can continue to work toward my goal of helping those affected by CHD achieve what they want in life."

Robin Stephens, Mother of an Adult with CHD

"It’s important to support ACHA’s mission through donating so others will receive the quality specialized treatment my son received as an infant—and as adults, they will understand the importance of routine follow up with accredited providers. I understand any amount on a routine basis empowers ACHA to continue to build their firm foundation for growth."
