Being a member charity of Community Health Charities is great for our organization! CHC is a wonderful partner that keeps health non-profits in the minds of our local companies and their employees. We enjoy participating in health fairs and always jump at the chance to bring speakers into a company to share the mission of CHC and The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. We've been honored to have CHC recruit volunteers for our local walk. And most importantly, the money raised through CHC for our organization is helping fund research and cure cancer. CHC allows us to diversify our fundraising and keeps us relevant in the workplace.

CHC partners with the most effective health Charities at the local and the national level to excite employees about giving and being part of your work community. When you add to that their skill at curating health content to support people when they need it most you have an organization that will be part of improving the health and well being of communities across the country. My favorite example is a giving Fund CHC created with the Southern Plains Tribal Health Board. It funds Charities that work to address the health challenges that are priories for native people. Organizations can partner with CHC to develop the cause that is most important to their employees and communities and charities can access a more people who want to give, volunteer and be part of making the worl a healthier, kinder place.

Community Health Charities is a strong, focused, and action-oriented organization, providing great resources to a broad number of organizations. As a board member for the last two+ years, I've seen the transition of a splintered organization to one that is clearly focused on delivering the most good to the most organizations, and providing value to companies and groups of all sizes that are interested in giving. The combination, with CHC in the middle, is a great value to the communities at large. As the conditions around giving change, CHC has been ahead of the changes and prepared to do the most good possible.

Make-A-Wish Greater Virginia has been a member of Community Health Charities (CHC) for nearly four years. Our experience with CHC has been exceptional. The staff at all levels are prompt and helpful in responding requests. Each year they seem to provide additional member benefits that reduces our burden of work, leaving us more time to focus on our mission. Above all else, CHC has done a wonderful job in raising awareness for our organization through their workplace giving campaigns. We are very pleased to be a member and routinely recommend CHC to other health-related charities.

The team at Community Health Charities is truly focused on helping employees (and their families!) give support to or get help from the health and well-being causes that are most important in their lives. I met them in Minnesota over 10 years ago, and was so inspired by their work I joined the board. I've met many work group leaders who say CHC helps them bring great giving, volunteering, support and learning opportunities to their employees.

I love that their work helps people have better health and wellness today. And, because the money raised goes to vetted and trusted national and local charities who in turn are developing new ways help and research for cures, CHC is building healthier communities in the long term.

Professionally, I know the organization and the people well through years of working with them in workplace giving. I recently decided to join the Board of Directors because I think CHC plays a significant role in helping a tremendous number of health causes, and because I trust and admire the leadership and the staff.

Community Health Charities leverages our work in the community with other dedicated charities to support growth in advocacy, support and fundraising by reaching companies and individuals we wouldn't be able to connect with. Their support of our mission is incredibly important in order for us to reach a broader community, increasing their knowledge of Autism Spectrum Disorder and how to get involved.

I have been running our University charitable campaign for several years and our faculty and staff consider CHC a trusted partner to ensure donations are used effectively for the greatest amount of good. CHC has more than 2,000 trusted, vetted charity partners so their ability to help those in need is wide reaching! Another interesting fact I learned recently is that CHC's overhead is 6%, which means 94% of what we raise supports charity partners, either through direct cash donation, or through our programs.

Community Health Charities has done a wonderful job reaching out into the community through its educational outreach programs aimed at donors in the workplace. As a Development Director of a member charity I have seen how CHC been so good at explaining why employees can donate to charities through them and making it convenient to not only donate but also to volunteer. Many charities are able to benefit from people who might not otherwise have taken the time or had the time to seek out ways to give to the variety of organizations offered. I am very grateful for the help they have given us. - Gail B.

The ability of CHC to reach the local charities it serves is unprecedented. As a board member of the Southeastern affiliate for more than 5 years, I have witnessed firsthand CHC's unique ability to put caring donors in touch with the charities that mean the most to them, thereby increasing overall employee engagement through community outreach. Donors appreciate the opportunity to see their hard-earned money enhance their own local community.

I have served on the Board of the Atlanta-based affiliate of Community Health Charities for over 10 years. My involvement with this organization is rooted in its long-time dedication to connecting donors and recipients in the focused area of health. I particularly am gratified being affiliated with an organization that discharges its mission with a true focus on "outcome-based" giving -- an unwavering dedication to donor choice and donation impact in their local communities. Donors are assured that their contributions make a difference where they work and live, as efficiently and effectively as possible. MikeS.

I have served on the Board of Directors of Community Health Charities of Maine. CHC is able to connect with local employers to help generate much needed funds for health-related charities. In return, CHC's Health Matters at Work program brings important health information and services provided by these charities directly into the workplace through their interactive website. Louise P.

Have been proud to serve as a volunteer as well as a board member for Community Health Charities. They are a wonderful organization, with such inspiring leaders and executives. Most importantly, they make a difference in every community they serve. And the value they bring is so very needed. By far my most favorite volunteer time, Community Health Charities has built an exceptional organization, a strong brand and a meaningful mission. I have been honored to get to know the organization in a very real way. They are deserving of support and are committed to excellence throughout the nation.

In running the hospice association in New Jersey for 20+ years, I have found the support of Community Health Charities to be irreplaceable to our work. Not only does its financial support help thousands of people learn the benefits of hospice care at end of life, but the opportunity to network with dozens of healthcare leaders from over 40 disease-related charities has broadened our outreach and made our own programming more effective.
