Donate to AHA

AHA’s mission is to improve the health and well-being of Wake County residents by facilitating and supporting community initiatives. We accomplish this by convening partners that change policies, systems and environments focused on well-being, healthy eating and physical activity.

This kind of change takes time…and a community of partners working together.

Your donation to AHA supports our work with elected leaders and key city and county staff, along with school, community, health care and business leaders. Just a few positive health impacts from AHA’s work include:

  • healthy sports and camp snacking policies—impacting 50,000 kids/year
  • healthy school environments increasing daily healthy behaviors—15,000+ students/year
  • creating a system for child care providers to buy fresh NC produce for kids —3,000+ in child care
  • More than 1,200 trained in community, school and child care gardens
  • Leadership on Safe Routes to School and Complete Streets policy to increase daily physical activity
