Dear NCAH Members and Partners,

As we approach the end of 2016 and the end of our 14th year, I want to thank you for your continued commitment to NCAH!

Your support over the past 14 years has allowed us to grow, succeed, and now take the exciting step to become our own 501(c)(3) organization. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to help make sure this transition is a smooth one and am truly looking forward to continuing to achieve our goals together in 2017 and for years to come.

I hope you will join us on Monday, December 5, from 1:30pm to 3:30pm at the American Heart Association for our final membership meeting of 2016. Also, to ensure that you are updated on the latest NCAH information, please be on the lookout for an email regarding changes to our listserv over the next few days.

Thank you again for your support of NCAH. I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Warmly,

Morgan Wittman Gramann

Give something else this Halloween

No comments

This Halloween, while households hand out candy, more than 1.5 million North Carolinians cannot access the healthy foods necessary to live a healthy life. You can help.

In July, the NC General Assembly appropriated $250,000 for the creation of a statewideHealthy Corner Store Initiative. While this is a great step towards the elimination of food deserts in NC, more work needs to be done.

On January 11, the NC General Assembly will begin session and NCAH will seek $1 million in recurring funds to support the initiative. With your support we can help to ensure all North Carolinians have access to healthy, affordable foods.

Please consider making a donation to support this important effort.

You can support the Food Bank’s efforts by making a donation today. For every dollar donated, the Food Bank can provide five meals.

Exciting changes for NCAH

No comments

Dear NCAH Members and Partners:

On Monday, October 3, the membership voted to empower the Executive Committee to take the steps to create the North Carolina Alliance for Health as a 501(c)(3) organization. At the Executive Committee Strategic Planning Meeting on October 4 and 5, the Executive Committee created a plan for moving forward.

A temporary Board of Directors has been selected from the current Executive Committee to govern this process. If you would like to serve on the Board or would like to nominate someone to serve, please let me know.

Articles of Incorporation will be filed with the Secretary of State in the coming days and a request will be made to the Internal Revenue Service for non-profit status shortly thereafter. We anticipate that NCAH will have completed this process by December 31, 2016.

As discussed at the membership meeting there are many benefits of making this change, including:

  • autonomy of the coalition;
  • increased opportunities to apply for grant funding;
  • increased ability conduct more successful fundraising campaigns; and
  • ability to hire employees who are focused solely on the success of the coalition.

The membership will have the opportunity to provide comment on the bylaws prior to the December 5 membership meeting. This meeting will take place from 1:30pm to 3:30pm at the American Heart Association. We will also discuss NCAH’s new membership application and meeting schedule at this meeting.

I am excited to help guide NCAH through this process and am committed to ensuring the process is as smooth as possible.

As always, please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. I can be reached at morgan@ncallianceforhealth.org or 919.308.8800.

Warmly,

Morgan Wittman Gramann
Managing Director
NC Alliance for Health
