Join Health Guardians Giving Circle

PAs passionate about improving health through philanthropy


Become a Health Guardian today

Health Guardians are donors who identify with the hopes and dreams of the PA Foundation’s volunteer leaders, donors, and staff for the long-term growth and success of the organization. They recognize that the Foundation’s programs benefit patients who lack access to healthcare, students who take on staggering debt to pursue their PA education, and PAs who step outside their day-to-day practice to improve health in their communities or abroad.

Health Guardians support the core programs of the PA Foundation with a minimum annual gift of $240 or cumulative monthly gifts equal to or exceeding $240.

These gifts represent a sustainable commitment to our mission of empowering PAs to improve health through philanthropy and service. Health Guardian donors are committed to PA Foundation programs like:

  • IMPACT Grants – supporting community-based, PA-led philanthropic health initiatives
  • Global Outreach Grants – providing funding for medical service projects that improve health and quality of life in underserved areas around the world
  • Scholarships – easing the financial burden of the next generation of PA leaders
  • Special projects – raising public awareness of PAs’ knowledge and experience while sharing health information and resources

How to Join

There are two ways to become a part of this important group of donor

  • Schedule monthly payments of $20 or quarterly payments of $60 for a minimum of one year
  • Make a one-time gift of $240 or more


Our Health Guardians will be recognized annually for their commitment to the Foundation with the following:

  • A certificate of commitment
  • A Health Guardians lapel pin
  • Recognition at AAPA Conference
  • Recognition on the PA Foundation website
