The Ayes Have It. As of August 16, AIDS Emergency Fund’s (AEF) merger with Positive Resource Center (PRC) is official.

We’re thrilled to be part of this newly combined organization, which also includes Baker Places, Inc., with which PRC has also merged.

So how much is going to change, and when? As with any merger, it’s complicated. Some things have already changed, but much of AEF—like its program and service delivery—will remain the same. Lee Harrington and McLean Smithson continue to lead the program department. Clients won’t see any noticeable changes, and our location won’t change for at least two years as we’ve successfully renegotiated our lease. Also on the office side of things, Breast Cancer Emergency Fund is now subleasing the office space formerly occupied by Folsom Street Events, so if you visit the office you’ll notice that things are configured a bit differently.

We’re excited to welcome two members of PRC’s team to the AEF
office. Chief Operating Officer Joe Tuohy and Development Associate
Sean Greene have moved to AEF and are working closely with AEF’s
Cal Callahan and Britt Hayes on fundraising efforts. Joe will also have operational and management oversight at the 12 Grace Street location. Please join us in welcoming Joe and Sean.
