Meil Family Foundation Match Challenge

UPDATE: Thank you for the overwhelming support we received in February for the Match Challenge. Together, we once again beat the challenge! While online donations are closed, we are still processing donations made by check. Check back to this website for updates to our total.

Still want to make a donation to ACHA? You can do so here:


It's BACK! For the entire month of February, the Meil Family Foundation will match 50% of every donation of $25 or more that is made to ACHA, up to the first $50,000 raised. For example, if you contribute $100 to ACHA, the Foundation will match 50% of your gift, making the total impact of your donation $150.

Last year, thanks to hundreds of supporters, we shattered the Challenge by raising more than $87,000. We hope to beat our goal again this year, but we can't do it without your support. Please donate today!

Once you've made your donation, challenge your friends and family to join you by sharing your support on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Snapchat. Don't forget to use the tag #ACHACares.

Founded in 1998, ACHA improves and extends the lives of the millions born with heart defects through education, advocacy and promoting research. ACHA is dedicated to supporting individuals and families living with congenital heart disease (CHD), and advancing the care and treatment available to our community.

We do this through a wide and growing range of programs, services and activities. These include our National Conference, educational materials, website, outreach and advocacy efforts, research programs and events to raise money and increase awareness.

After a successful first year under our 2018-2020 Strategic Plan, we are moving toward a larger impact while strengthening our roots within the communities of those we serve. We are focusing on six strategic goals over the next two years, and some of those include:

  • Expanding ACHA’s reach to increase awareness of CHD and ACHA’s mission.
  • Funding research to improve outcomes for CHD patients and future generations.
  • Developing a unified CHD advocacy/public policy platform.
  • Placing staff across the country to expand and enhance ACHA’s reach at the local level.

We believe this plan points us in the right direction, but continuing to move our plan forward requires critical resources. We need your support, and what better time to make your investment in ACHA than during the Meil Family Foundation Match Challenge?
