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.

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.

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.

I am fortunate to have been asked to join the board of the Community Health Charities, a federation of health-related nonprofit agencies that provide a wealth of critical programs for the community. My position on the board provides me with a unique perspective to see how the agency is run from the inside, and I've rarely met a staff that is so thoroughly committed to helping raise funding and awareness for its member charities. CHC is extremely careful to keep their expenses to a minimum, knowing that any savings will ultimately be passed along to their charities. CHC staff provides all of its members with thorough training when it is time to complete funding applications and always seem genuinely happy to help with questions. CHC also publishes electronic newsletters that concentrate on health and wellness, an important component of a complete benefit package for any organization. I have been impressed with every interaction I've had with or related to CHC, from their Executive Director, Joe and staff to many of the nonprofit agencies on their member roster. Thank you, CHC, for all you do to help the financial stability of nonprofits.

Community Health Charities (CHC) is very focused on helping people affected by major health issues across the nation. They raise significant funds at low cost, that are used by major non-profit Health Associations to both fund the research for a cure, and improve the lives of people affected by that health issue. This includes cancer, Alzheimer’s, diabetes, MS, arthritis, asthma, leukemia and many other important health issues in adults and children. The CHC volunteer leaders and staff are amongst the most professional and dedicated individuals I have met and worked with. Their leadership and results have contributed to great strides in the health of Americans. Thank you CHC!

I work for the National MS Society in Des Moines, Iowa. Through our agency partnership with CHC Iowa we receive critical funds that help us maintain our programs and services to people living with MS. People like Peter who used an older power wheelchair, which he has to use outside his home. He could drive but didn't have a lift on his vehicle, so would take his wheelchair to the car, transfer, and then drive and stay in the car and have friends or family go into stores, etc., for him. We assisted Peter in getting a wheelchair lift for the back of his vehicle so he can take his power wheelchair to different places in the community. This is a real story about a real person who was helped through our Financial Assistance Grants in part funded by CHC-Iowa.
