2017 Fundraising Toolkit

Financial support of Friends of THA, the association’s political action committee (PAC), is critical to influence the future of healthcare at the state level and ensure Tennessee hospitals have a seat at the table in matters of public policy and advocacy.

To help our hospitals with their own campaigns to meet their 2017 goals, we have developed a Friends of THA PAC toolkit. It includes sample letters for board members, physicians, volunteers, vendors and other hospital employees, along with contribution cards. It also includes artwork that can be personalized and used in newsletters, on intranet sites and in other publications to encourage participation in the campaign.

Hospitals are encouraged to utilize any or all of these items to assist them in their fundraising efforts:
