AJ Foundation Initiatives
AJ's initial gift to Wolfson Children's Hospital was memorialized in an endowment which awards annual scholarships to nursing students interested in pediatric oncology! Nurses were AJ's favorite people and the Foundation is currently working to expand these scholarship opportunities in Glynn County high schools.
Nursing Scholars Program
In 2017, the Foundation launched its Nursing Scholars Program. The Nursing Scholars Program grants one annual scholarship to a Glynn County high school senior who will pursue a career in nursing at the College of Coastal Georgia.
The Nursing Scholars Program awarded its first scholarship in May 2017. Currently, there are 3 "AJ Scholars" enrolled at the College.
Wolfson Children's Center
Team AJ continues to support the Wolfson Children's Center in Brunswick, GA. For example, in 2016, we purchased the center a VX Clinical Assistant, a state-of-the-art piece of medical equipment that will greatly assist the center and its patients.
The Clinic provides a unique opportunity for Brunswick-area patients who no longer need to travel to Savannah or Jacksonville (as AJ did) for certain treatments
Christmas Gift Program
Every Christmas, the Foundation purchases presents and delivers them to children and their families who unfortunately spend Christmas in the hospital.
The Gift Program has partnered with the Childrens' Healthcare of Atlanta hospital system to bring Christmas joy (and maybe even an appearance from Santa) to families in need.
The AJ Donohue Foundation is always looking for new ways to expand outreach and respond to financial challenges facing families of children undergoing pediatric cancer treatments. We always welcome new ideas for fundraisers, donors, and sponsors.
