Caring And Sharing In Changing Times

As the landscape for giving progresses, we are changing with the times and making it easier than ever to support the causes you care about. I am proud to be a part of a community that cares; caring is at the heart of everything we do. Thanks to the more than 2,000 local and national charities that compose our membership network and accomplish miracles every day. Thanks to our nearly 1,600, and growing, public and private workplace partners who increase engagement in so many ways. Perhaps most importantly, thanks to the 17 million individuals who donate so generously through Community Health Charities. We are united around a common mission: connecting people with causes that matter. We have recently expanded our vision to embrace a broader understanding of health. For almost 60 years, Community Health Charities has helped people make a difference in health causes. Together, there is no limit to what we can accomplish. Our charities are society’s primary change-makers for better health. Community Health Charities is an enabler, connector and supporter for them as we collaborate and partner in many different ways. For employees, workplace-giving and engagement is a significant benefit, and a way to connect with causes that matter. It enables employers to enhance their social responsibility strategies and emphasize employee engagement. For us, gratitude is a core value. We deeply appreciate and celebrate our health champions. Our focus will expand to ensure we see giving opportunities through the eyes of those who want to make a difference, as much as through the eyes of those who need their support. Our member charities need continued support to pioneer healthcare breakthroughs. Alzheimer’s is a major concern, as are substance abuse, mental health disorders and the health challenges faced by veterans. Groups such as Covenant House, one of our newest members, are making a difference for homeless youths in our communities. As the landscape for giving progresses, we are changing with the times and making it easier than ever to support the causes you care about. We are creating opportunities that allow you to make one contribution to support multiple charities. We are committed to researching and vetting the best health and wellness organizations for you, and we are working to elevate the importance and impact health-related giving has on our communities. We are well-positioned to assist compassionate people, companies and organizations, and help our committed charities achieve goals and accomplish meaningful results. By doing this together, we will make a difference in local communities across the U.S. and improve the health and well-being of the communities in which we live and work.
