Everyone knows that December is a special time of year — a time when family, friends and neighbors gather to celebrate the joys of the holiday season. But do you know that December is also the Month of Giving, whether it’s making a donation to a charitable cause or volunteering your time to help others in need.
Past, Present & Future
This December, we invite you to learn more about The Alliance for Health Equity’s impact in the Greater Coatesville area by viewing our Community Reports. If you’re already a supporter, we hope you’ll be proud of all we have accomplished together. If you’re new to our work, we hope you’ll be inspired to give and get involved so that we can build on our success to have an even greater impact in the future. It would be impossible for us to fulfill our mission and vision of a thriving, inclusive and healthy community for all without the hundreds of donors and volunteers who give of their time, talent, and treasure.
In the Greater Coatesville area, with some of Chester County’s poorest neighborhoods, our children, seniors, adults, and youth lack the quality healthcare, mental health, behavioral health, and social support services that they need. Donations help with supporting general operating expenses, building a stronger nonprofit sector, and our implementing strategic initiatives that help with emergent and long term community challenges. Your generosity will make a real difference.
The Alliance for Health Equity pursues its mission through grantmaking, providing scholarships, building partnerships, and being a catalyst to spark new initiatives where they are needed the most. Our grants focus on improving the conditions under which people in underserved communities can be healthy and thrive. It reflects trust-based philanthropy approaches and investments in neighborhoods that have been left behind economically in the Greater Coatesville area.
The integration of our impact areas allows The Alliance for Health Equity to put our community on the path of resiliency and transformation. These impact areas include:
- Helping People Live Healthy & Well through The Greater Coatesville Hospital Closure Group, The Coatesville Homelessness and Unemployment Collective, The Brandywine Center, and The Wellbeing Fund
- Creating Healthy Spaces & Places through The Greening Coatesville Initiative and Public Safety Training
- Leading Community-Driven Change through The Coatesville Black Media Renaissance Project, The Community Voice Initiative and Let’s Talk Series, The Collaborative Innovation Fund, and The Nonprofit Justice and Equity Institute
