Friends of THA PAC Launches 2017 Fundraising Toolkit

A message from Marvin Eichorn, 2017 Friends of THA PAC Chairman 
Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, Mountain States Health Alliance

Your 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.

As chairman of the 2017 Friends of THA PAC fundraising campaign, I want to ask for your help and participation to meet this year’s goal of $125,000. The campaign ends on July 31.

To help in your hospital’s efforts to meet its goal, 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.

Whatever amount individuals can give is gratefully accepted—every little bit will help as Tennessee hospitals work to ensure their patients receive the best care possible.

Contributing to Friends of THA is an effective way to represent the interests of all hospitals and their patients. By pooling funds together, THA creates a strong powerful voice that successfully represents Tennessee hospitals in the political arena. A robust PAC also ensures access to legislators to discuss the association’s 2017 healthcare priorities.

Your financial commitment is a very important to the success of this year’s fundraising campaign. Please contribute to Friends of THA this year in support of the association’s advocacy initiatives.

Thank you for your assistance in this very important fundraising endeavor.
