Although this campaign has concluded, if you would still like to make a donation to support the Birmingham Free Clinic and Women's Center Clinic, you may always do so here.
I am writing to you to announce the exciting start of our 2020 online campaign to support the efforts of The Birmingham Free Clinic, SALUD, and the Women's Center Clinic!
Medical students and undergraduate students comprise a large portion of the labor force needed to keep our clinics running, but we also depend on the support of the community. Resources from a donor like you help keep our pharmacies stocked, facilitate the purchase of new equipment, and pay for essential preventative care, like vaccinations and laboratory testing. Through the generosity of the Pittsburgh community, we are able to better care for our neighbors!
If you are interested in contributing, please visit and share our online campaign page at https://engage.pitt.edu/bhamfreeclinic. The site will be live from today until February 3rd, so feel free to spread the word and forward the link.
We have a NEW GOAL OF $9,000! With the success of our live and silent auctions and the many fundraisers our amazing coordinators have put on, we are just shy of raising $20,000 in total for our clinics!
Our coordinators have worked so hard this year, both inside and outside the clinics. Our clinics are constantly growing, with more patient visits than ever before. In order to fund this growth, we have to raise more money each year. So please join us in this last little push to raise about $500 and meet our new goal!
Share the link (http://engage.pitt.edu/bfc) with your friends, family, and colleagues and help us achieve our goal! We cannot thank you all enough for your continued support of our students and community here at Pitt - without this, our clinics and community would not be the same, so thank YOU!!!
Thank you to everyone who came out to both our silent and live auctions last night! The event was a humongous success, and we raised a little over $9,500 during the events!
Our clinic coordinators have been working on this event for 7 months, and it would not have been as successful without the efforts of everyone involved. Thank you, coordinators! And thanks to the family and friends supporting each of them from near and far!
We are SO close to our goal of $8,000 here on our site with EngagePitt - so please continue to share our link! Let’s see if we can raise a total of $20,000 for our clinics and education!!!
We officially passed $5000 and wanted to send out a big THANK YOU for all the support thus far!! We are moving closer and closer to our goal - and we couldn’t have done it without each and every one of our donors and those who have spread the word!
We are revving up for our 10th Annual Birmingham Auction, which is just one week away!! Anyone who wishes to attend is more than welcome to join us on January 31st, 2019 at University of Pittsburgh Biomedical Science Tower #1 (203 Lothrop St., Pittsburgh, PA 15213) from 5:00pm - 8:30pm. There will be both a silent auction and live auction with so many incredible items being auctioned off, from Penguin’s tickets, to a helicopter ride over Pittsburgh, gift cards to great restaurants, and more!
As we continue through the last two weeks of our campaign, please consider sharing our link to friends, family, or colleagues and help us reach our goal!! Thank you again for all the love and support!
A donation at this level will allow students to practice administering flu vaccines to patients in need.
Give our volunteers a coffee boost by helping us provide coffee for a month!
Our volunteers work long hours, often without stopping for a bite to eat. Surprise our volunteers with lunch for a day! WE LOVE FOOD!
Support our front office volunteers for 1 week by making a donation for supplies! Hmm...we don't use rocks at clinic, but the name sounded cool, so we kept it for this gift!
Sometimes we rely too heavily on technology to help patients. This gift allows us to purchase a high-quality stethoscope and blood pressure cuff so students can learn the proper technique to measure blood pressures manually. If technology fails, no worries because we can perform our tasks the old-fashioned way!
Our team consists of mentors of various specialties who provide a unique and excellent learning opportunity for all of our students, providing over 500 hours of teaching every term. Help support our learning environment with a gift of $500!
Every month, our volunteers give over 200 hours of free services (valued at over $1,000). You can match their contribution by making a generous donation of $1,000! Come on, you know you want to!
Our volunteers obtain necessary skills as future Pitt professionals through on-site training - but they need updated exam rooms and a fully stocked pharmacy to do so. You can continue to support their education by making a generous donation of $2,000!
