Our mission and how we help.

How We Help

The mission of the Greg Dollgener Memorial AIDS Fund (GDMAF) is to enhance the lives of people with HIV/AIDS in the North Texas area by providing financial assistance for critical needs when resources are exhausted through other local organizations.

GDMAF has provided more than $500,000 in assistance to more than 3,000 people since 1996 and continue to help increase the number of people we have helped each year.

GDMAF Process

GDMAF works solely through AIDS service organizations such as Prism Health North Texas, Resource Center Dallas, AIN-Access and Information Network, Health Services of North Texas (Denton, Plano & Greenville), AIDS Services of Dallas, Parkland Hospital HIV Services, Arms Clinic Arch Center (Children’s Medical Center, Dallas), AIDS Walk South Dallas, A Sisters Gift and AIDS Outreach Center (Ft. Worth).

Each application is reviewed on a case-by-case basis with assistance going to those with the greatest immediate need, funding permitted.
