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.

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 is a streamlined way to solicit donations in terms of workplace giving for us. We are a small office of a national charity with limited time and resources to accomplish what we do through membership in Community Health Charities. Jane B.

Community Health Charities is a wonderful organization with terrific resources. A family member needed some information and assistance with mental illness. And we were able to reach out to the right resources through CHC. It really helped streamline the process for our family. We appreciated the easy access to information.

I have served on the board of directors and now am the CEO of Community Health Charities of the Southeast that covers both Georgia and Alabama. I've seen many changes in Community Health Charities over the past 8 years. The leadership by the Home Office has improved our message, outreach and deepened our connections to the hundreds of Member Charities throughout 35 affiliates throughout the US. We help to improve the lives of those living with chronic disease or disability by uniting a caring workforce with the nation's most trusted health charities. Brenda513
