If you’re interested in helping build a healthier community, Bay Area Community Health offers a wide range of opportunities. Our health center is the perfect place to share your talent, compassion, and commitment within a dynamic, team-based environment. 

Why Give to BACH?

By donating to Bay Area Community Health (BACH), it means making a positive impact in improving access to healthcare for the underserved and uninsured in our community. With your donation, we are able to do such things as support health education programs, purchase critically needed exam room supplies and medical equipment, provide transportation vouchers to people with special needs, offer prescription drugs at significantly lower cost to our patients, and conduct free health screenings. These are just few ways in which your giving makes a difference.

Advocacy

Bay Area Community Health is a leading advocate for our community, addressing inequities through community engagement on key policies that impact access to quality health care.

The advocacy team raises awareness of BACH’s mission and position on policy proposals with elected officials and members of the community. We have led various community campaigns using email blasts and social media promoting health education resources and policy proposals that support the needs of our community. We have established partnering relationships with  advocacy and outreach organizations in the community as a key part of our strategy to reach our representatives and support our community’s health objectives.

BACH’s key advocacy initiatives include:

  • Get Out the Vote Campaign
  • Email and Social Media Campaign
  • Participation in Rallies and Forums
  • Host Advocacy Events

Giving Options (Circle of Health) - Monthly Giving

The Circle of Health is a group of recurring donors who make a significant commitment to underserved children and adults in Alameda and Santa Clara County by making monthly gifts to our clinics. We count on these donors to support the programs and services provided to tens of thousands of patients every year. When you give to Bay Area Community Health, you’re not only supporting patient services, you’re making our community healthier.
