Greg Dollgener Memorial AIDS Fund
The Greg Dollgener Memorial AIDS Fund was named in honor of our friend who died of AIDS in 1994. Despite his personal devastation by HIV, Greg taught us all strength and courage through volunteering at various AIDS organizations and helping those less fortunate than himself. Today, the all-volunteer, 501(c)(3) organization carries on those efforts by enhancing 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. We are able to provide last resort assistance to those with HIV/AIDS in ways that agencies are unable. Whether it is paying rent, assisting with utilities, paying insurance premiums or providing funding for transportation needs, GDMAF is there to make a difference.
