In celebration of the 75th anniversary of the Georgia Academy of Family Physicians, the Georgia Healthy Family Alliance has launched the Caduceus Diamond giving level.
During the August 2022 Trustee meeting, the Georgia Healthy Family Alliance Board members noted that many members were nearing the end of their original pledge for the Your Giving is Great Medicine capital campaign. The highest level of giving was the Caduceus Level – $10,000 to $24,999 with the ability to give over several years. The Trustees enthusiastically voted to add the Caduceus Diamond level, a giving level ranging between $25,000 to $49,999.
GHFA Executive Director Fay Fulton asked for it to be noted that she wished to be the first official Caduceus Diamond level giver in memory of her mother, Mrs. Leo B. Fulton.
“My Mom loved her family physician, and the many GAFP members who were also consulted about her medical condition over the last few years, said Fulton. It is an honor and a pleasure to continue my giving to support family medicine and support the many Georgia communities that the Alliance is helping in these urgent times when so many need so much.”
In addition, Dr. Eddie Richardson – the current President of the Georgia Healthy Family Alliance Board of Trustees – also joined the Caduceus Diamond level immediately after it was voted and approved by the Trustees.
When asked why he donated Dr. Richard stated, “I have seen firsthand the marvelous heart and life-touching work that the GHFA Community Health Grant recipients have done. And I am 110% behind furthering the mission!”
The Georgia Healthy Family Alliance is also fortunate to have two of its former board presidents already giving at the Caduceus Diamond level even before it was considered an official level. At this moment, we would like to acknowledge and thank two of GHFA’s most distinguished givers – Dr. Loy “Chip” Cowart and Dr. Patrick “PJ” Lynn. Not only are they both selfless with their treasure, both give their time, talent and connections in order to further the GHFA mission.
“I’ve been a faithful supporter of the Georgia Healthy Family Alliance with my money, time, and energy for several years. Nothing is more rewarding than hearing the stories of family doctors serving their communities through our grant programs. Additionally, the growth and innovation with Tar Wars that we have pressed for has been a resounding success, and I am excited to see how many kids we are reaching with our message,” stated Dr. Lynn.
Dr. Cowart expressed a similar sentiment about donating to the Alliance, “Donating to GHFA is a way to help current citizens in Georgia with the health care needs as well as educating students on healthy lifestyle choices. It is a small gesture that can make a big difference for other people.”
Throughout history, diamonds have symbolized strength, love, health and long life. They are regarded as a sign of distinction and often mark the 75th anniversary.
