Giving How Your Donation Helps Ways to Give
The PARTNERS for Equity in Child and Adolescent Health of the Department of Pediatrics at Emory University is committed to enhancing the health and well-being of Georgia’s underserved children by:
  • Expanding the number of school-based health clinics in Georgia (urban and rural areas);
  • Creating a family-centered model for comprehensive primary care services for at-risk children;
  • Developing innovative programs that link healthcare, education, and community services; and
  • Training future pediatricians to provide medical care that addresses the social determinants of health.
We are serving the children of Georgia through our alliances with the School Based Health Alliance; Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Hughes Spalding; the Reach Out and Read Program; the Health Law Partnership; and the Childhood Injury Prevention Program.
By making a donation to the PARTNERS for Equity in Child and Adolescent Health, you are contributing to a healthy future for Georgia’s children.
  • School-based health clinics improve health outcomes by increasing access and providing multidisciplinary health care to underserved populations.
  • Primary care is the foundation of quality health care for children, especially the underserved. An effective medical home addresses the inter-related health, cognitive and psychosocial challenges that at-risk children face.
  • Education is a direct predictor of health. Our pediatricians address children’s cognitive and academic development to maximize their health outcomes.
  • Pediatricians in their early phase of training benefit from education in the social determinants of health and healthcare delivery from a public health perspective.
  • Gifts of Cash: Making a donation of cash is as simple as writing a check or authorizing a charge on your credit card.
  • Gifts In-Kind: The Urban Health Program needs books to further our Reach Out and Read Program.
  • Gifts of Securities: Stock that has increased in value is one of the most popular assets used for charitable giving, once it has been held for a minimum of a year.
  • Bequests and Life Income Gifts: With a bequest or life income gift, you can combine your desire to give to charity with your overall financial, tax, and estate planning goals.
  • Tribute/Memorial Gifts: Create a special opportunity to remember a deceased family member or friend or honor a person who is celebrating a special occasion by making a gift to the Department of Pediatrics Urban Health Program.
