Friends of Public
Health (FOPH) will expand WPHA’s efforts to sponsor and support
initiatives that advance WPHA’s mission and vision. Your contributions are made to one of several designated categories—and will be used specifically to fund activities within that category.
Current fund categories include:
Funds will be used to support scholarships for attendance by WPHA members to conferences, training and education.
Funds will be used to support participation in leadership development programs, including sponsoring a candidate for MARPHLI (Mid-America
Regional Public Health Leadership Institute).
Funds will be used to draw national speakers to Wisconsin for special events and conferences, including the WPHA Annual Conference.
Projects and Initiatives.
General use funds to be spent at the discretion of the Board of Directors for specific projects or initiatives other than routine operating expenses.
The Board of Directors may by a two-thirds vote establish other categories. Once established and funded, a category cannot be modified, although the Board of Directors may create a modified category designed to replace a prior category for future donations
