SUPPORT FOR THE FOUNDATION
The African and American Healthcare Foundation accepts tax-deductible donations in support of its charitable activities. In addition to cash the Foundation also accepts non-cash materials, equipment, sponsorships and endowments.
The Foundation has established an annual Omozele charity event that is organized for people to receive toys, gifts and information on healthful behaviors. Individuals and corporations may make specific donations towards this event. The Foundation will provide recognition to individuals and corporations that make a donation of $5000.00 or more in a single year towards the charity event.
In 2015, the Foundation re-evaluated its mission and the Board made a forward-looking decision to pay more attention to its goal of providing support for the training of smart students in the fields of education, medical sciences, engineering and technology. During the same time, the Board made another decision to increase the Foundation’s effort in knowledge and technology transfer to Nigeria. This new emphasis will guarantee that the Foundation will contribute to the training of new and additional experts that will support the goals listed in the divisions of the Foundation.
To achieve the Foundation’s goals, we are depending on the charitable spirit of well-meaning individuals and corporations. Donations made to the Foundation are used to fund many of the programs. The Foundation has also invested in partnerships with others to provide management services (for hospitals and Governments) for which the Foundation will be compensated.
The Foundation wishes to highlight the following programs in the coming years for charitable contributions
* Development and Management of Community Hospital in Nigeria
* Provision of proper education on child abuse prevention
* HIV/AIDS and other communicable diseases prevention
* Educational scholarship for smart, eligible students for tertiary education
* Development of information network for mental health education
The development of a community hospital in Nigeria has been completed and the management was initiated in 2016. This is a publicly owned, but privately managed hospital. The Foundation is providing management expertise to the hospital, and is excited about the value it has been able to contribute to the State and the Community in which the hospital is located. Many persons who would normally not have access to a well-organized and staffed hospital are now able to do so.
The hospital welcomes financial contributions to help keep its operations going. For reasonably small amounts of contribution (which are tax deductible) significant positive impact will be achieved in the lives of the community members.
A donation of $10,000.00 will expand the operating room of the hospital. A donation of $5000.00 to $8000.00 will enable the hospital to purchase proper equipment to perform special procedures on patients, especially pregnant women, or to purchase electricity-generating equipment because of unreliable electricity supply in the community.
A donation of $2000.00 to $4000.00 will allow the hospital purchase specialized equipment for performing tests on patients that need laboratory testing in support of the medical officers’ work. Equipment that requires reconstitution of reagents is not practical in the region.
A donation of $1000.00 to $3000.00 will allow the hospital to care for up to 10 indigent in-patients for up to four days of inpatient stay. In addition, many ambulatory-sensitive conditions can be managed for the same amount of donation, which will reduce in-patient hospitalization.
A donation of $600.00 will allow the hospital to provide community outreach services in which education on proper utilization of healthcare and social services will be made available to the community.
The African and American Healthcare Foundation accepts donations of any amount. In an effort to make charitable giving easier for donors, we have partnered with a reputable technology company that has provided us opportunity to accept donations through the Internet. The Foundation has created a web portal through which donations to the Foundation may be made.
Consistent with the Foundation’s emphasis on education and training, we will accept donations that are targeted towards the continuing education of our healthcare workers. Our publicly owned hospital physicians, nurses, administrators will benefit from the advanced education available in the United States of America, so we are always grateful if these professionals are sponsored to attend professional conferences, short-term educational programs and training in new methods of managing diseases.
