|Message from your ACHE Regent|
As I reflect on the 2017 holiday season in Oklahoma and the spirit of
giving to family, friends and charitable organizations, I want to also
highlight a wonderful initiative that ACHE offers. I am talking about the ACHE Fund for
Healthcare Leadership. I am working on
a special initiative for the Fund for Healthcare Leadership - a unique,
charitable fund dedicated to advancing our members and healthcare management
excellence through scholarship.
The Fund was established in 2006
to bring innovation to the forefront of healthcare leadership.
Since then, the Fund
has worked to strengthen the field of healthcare leadership through educational
programs and scholarships. From 2007–2016, donations to the Fund were used to establish
educational programs that promoted or built awareness around key areas of
focus. Today, the Fund for Healthcare Leadership continues to provide scholarships
to robust programs that inspire tomorrow's leaders. Scholarships are designed
for those whose organizations may lack the resources to fully fund their
tuition. The Senior Executive Program and Executive Program invite healthcare
leaders to learn, share and grow together during three intensive sessions. The
programs provide practical leadership strategies through the use of case
studies, personal assessments, panel discussions and site visits. The format is
designed to accelerate this high-level executive learning experience.
If you have already
made a contribution to the Fund this year, I sincerely thank you. If not, will you
please join me and make a tax-deductible contribution – any amount is wonderful
and appreciated – to ACHE’s charitable fund? To make your donation today, go towww.ache.org/abt_ache/fund/Donate.cfm.

about ways to contribute, or the impact of your contribution, please contact
