Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging (DEIB)

AHP is committed to deliberately recognizing diverse individual viewpoints and contributions in healthcare philanthropy

Our Commitment to DEIB

The Association for Healthcare Philanthropy (AHP) values and respects diversity. We view individual differences as assets that promote the growth and success of AHP’s goals, its members, and the healthcare philanthropy profession. We’re committed to more deliberately encouraging, supporting and recognizing diverse individual viewpoints and contributions in AHP’s work and creating a culture of belonging for everyone who is a part of AHP. 

We believe a diverse, equitable and inclusive membership is a vibrant membership able to best deliver on better healthcare for all through philanthropy.  We believe diversity is multi-dimensional, encompassing not just race and ethnicity but gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, experience, age, ability, class and more. Embracing individual differences and fostering equity by eliminating barriers that prevent the full participation of all are critical to our mission of inspiring, educating and serving our members as they work to transform healthcare through philanthropy.
