As Hurricane Florence approaches the East Coast and makes landfall, our thoughts are with all who are in the path of the storm, including our local Free and Charitable Clinics and their staff, volunteers and patients who will be impacted by this storm.
A year ago, Hurricane Harvey swept through the Houston area and devastated communities. The NAFC and Direct Relief teamed up to provide relief grants to Charitable Clinics that were in affected communities to support continued recovery efforts, to recoup expenses and/or reinforce emergency preparedness efforts related to the hurricanes which allows for the continuity of crucial life-saving care to those most vulnerable in their communities.
The National Association of Free & Charitable Clinics (NAFC) is excited to share that the organization has earned the 2018 Platinum Seal of Transparency from GuideStar, the world’s largest source of nonprofit information. The NAFC is thrilled to once again receive the highest level of recognition offered by GuideStar.
The National Association of Free & Charitable Clinics (NAFC) is thrilled to share that we have once again received a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator. Their coveted 4-star rating demonstrates strong financial health and commitment to accountability and transparency.
The National Association of Free and Charitable Clinics (NAFC) is disappointed that the health care of 9 million children was caught in the political cross fire on Capitol Hill as Congress failed to pass a spending bill, resulting in the government shutdown.
The NAFC wishes you a Happy New Year! As we are look forward to what's to come in 2018, and toward working to build a healthy America, one person at a time, we first wanted to take a look back at 2017! 2017 was a very busy and eventful year for the country, for our members and for the NAFC. Below is a high-level overview of some of the accomplishments of the organization from the past year:
Both the House and the Senate moved swiftly and passed a $1.5 trillion piece of Tax Legislation which is the most sweeping tax overhaul in decades. The bill will now be sent to President Trump to sign into law.
This Tuesday, November 28, 2017, the NAFC is once again participating in #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving. Or as we like to call it - #GivingHealthDay!
The National Association of Free and Charitable Clinics has been closely monitoring the House and Senate actions as they discuss their Tax Cuts and Jobs Act package. The NAFC was very concerned with the direction both of the tax bills were taking prior to the Senate adding the repeal of Individual Mandate to their bill. This, in addition to the existing provisions of the bill, will have massive negative impacts on our member organizations.
The San Francisco Free Clinic (SFFC) is a non-profit founded in 1993 by two family physicians. The clinic’s formal mission is two-fold: to provide free medical care for people with no health insurance, and to help train future generations of primary care providers. The clinic places equal focus on these two missions.
