Welcome to the Alliance Health Education Initiative (AHEI), a granting foundation. This website is a resource for members of the American Medical Association Alliance and other health education-oriented groups interested in seeking grants for health projects within their community. For those interested in donating to the AHEI, donations are tax- deductible to the full extent of the law.


AHEI’s “Party With A Purpose” was a rousing success. Held Sunday, June 7, 2015 at the Hyatt Chicago Magnificent Mile, it honored the first AHEI grant recipients, listed on the Grant Application page. Three of the four recipients were represented at the party and are pictured above.

Other photos show various aspects of the event, which included craft beer tasting, remarks from a beer connoisseur, dinner selections, and an exciting one pound mystery box auction! Our intrepid auctioneer, Tom Swan, did a fabulous job entertaining the participants and encouraging bids. Many thanks to Event Chair Angela Ladner and her committee, and to AHEI Chair Barb Hanas for a wonderful year.

The new board, also pictured above, is listed on the Leadership page. Read more about our multi talented volunteers.
