There are three ways to donate to the Hope Clinic. We appreciate all donations, whether they are monetary, in-kind, or time spent volunteering at our facility. All donations received will be applied to providing patients with high-quality medical care.
The Hope Clinic is a 501(c) (3) public charity, and all contributions are 100 percent tax deductible.
- The Hope Clinic's Federal Tax Identification Number (FEIN) is: 45-0478716
- Georgia Charitable Organization Registration Number is: CH-07871
Individual donors, grant funding and other monetary contributions deliver the financial stability the Hope Clinic needs to fulfill its mission to provide affordable medical care to the uninsured and indigent in the community. Hope Clinic is supported 50% through patient payments and 50% through donations.
Thanks to you, our caregivers have touched the lives of thousands – whether they faced an urgent need, a devastating disease or sought to improve their quality of life.
In an effort to provide a medical home for our patients and offer them affordable healthcare, the Hope Clinic Board of Directors launched the Invest in Hope Campaign in 2009, a fundraising endeavor with a goal of raising necessary funds from foundations, corporations, small businesses and individuals who care about the health of the underprivileged in our county and the surrounding area and the impact this situation has on all residents.
With the support of our donors, funds raised from the campaign have been used to:
Renovate a permanent health center:
- The new health center location allows us to greatly expand our available clinic space, bring on new physicians and dramatically reduce the waiting list and wait times for our practice.
Recruit additional providers:
- The Hope Clinic currently has two physicians and one physician assistant to care for the growing young adult, middle-aged and elderly population served by the Hope Clinic.. Each provider can care for 2,500 patients each year.
Implement wellness and prevention programs:
- Physicians and nurses spearheading a wellness and prevention program are treating the Hope Clinic's patients at the clinic on a scheduled basis. The new building and facility also accommodates specialists who want to come to Hope Clinic and provide their services to our patients.
Purchase new equipment:
- New diagnostic equipment allows x-ray imaging to be available with other medical care in one convenient location, at prices far lower than the cost of an x-ray in the emergency room.
Ensure that the uninsured/underinsured have access to quality medical care at prices they can afford:
- The availability of care for the uninsured is vital to attracting new business to Gwinnett County. Many small businesses cannot afford health insurance for their employees and large businesses often have some portion of their employee group who are not covered. The Hope Clinic can fill that void and provide quality, affordable healthcare for those who are uninsured, playing a vital role in the economic development of our area.
- The single biggest need of the Hope Clinic is operating funds. Without the skill sets of credentialed providers and support personnel the program would not exist.
One very helpful "in-kind" donation to the Hope Clinic is securities. Our long term goal is to establish an investment fund for $10 million dollars which will provide long term financial stability to the clinic and allow us to provide employed physicians to care for patients just as they would be cared for if they could afford a regular primary care home.
Tangible items that are always needed at Hope Clinic are:
paper towels, toilet paper, hand sanitizer, hand soap, ball point pens, paper clips and copy paper.
Disinfectant spray cleaners and Lysol air spray are also needed.

We invite you to include the Hope Clinic in your life as a volunteer. Most of our volunteers have served on a weekly basis for many years. They quickly become part of the team. Each volunteer who makes a commitment to volunteer at the Hope Clinic, also requires that the Hope Clinic donate time and resources to making your volunteer service useful and meaningful to both you and our patients. Please consider this as you think about how much time you can give and how often you can give of your time. In many cases Hope Clinic will have to dedicate personnel to acclimate and train you so it is important for both of us to know how serious you are about volunteering.
Doctors, nurses and other medical caregivers are most welcome at the Hope Clinic. Medical professionals who volunteer at the Hope Clinic are required to submit all of the documentation that would be required for a regular job in their field. These would include, but not be limited to, licenses, curriculum vitae, job history with references and personal character references. Because our patients are very vulnerable and often have few or no other options for medical care, it is incumbent upon us to know that any nurse or doctor who treats them meets our standards.
Hope Clinic needs as many (sometimes more) volunteers in the business and fundraising department as we do in the clinic. We have major fundraising mailings several times a year; we have bookkeeping, accounting and secretarial duties every day; and, with the advent of our new computer systems for healthcare and fundraising we have data that must be entered and verified. Any volunteer work on the business side will require that you have job references that can verify your skill sets, as well as personal and business references concerning your character.
