Community Health Network Foundation
While The Giving Gig 2019 featuring Reba McEntire is sold out, you can still buy into the cause. That's because The Giving Gig's real music is heard through Community's cancer patients. Their stories of courage will inspire you. So why not support them by making a donation. You can purchase a Windsor Jewelry bracelet, a Day Furs scarf or Indy Fuel tickets with proceeds benefiting Community's cancer patients in need of critical financial aid. You may not see Reba, but you'll see to it that those less fortunate aren't forgotten. And that should put a song in your heart.
Foundation receives $2.5 million federal grant to transform primary care nursing
Community Health Network Foundation has been awarded a four-year $2,564,978 Health Resources & Services Administration (HRSA) grant to transform undergraduate nursing education and current nursing practice in primary care settings. This federal grant enables Community Health Network to expand an educational partnership with the University of Indianapolis (UIndy) School of Nursing and will help us tackle a primary care nursing shortage and provide better primary care access to underserved patients.
Since 1976, Community Health Network Foundation has worked to raise and steward financial support for Community Health Network, a non-profit health system providing a full continuum of care through more than 200 sites and hundreds of physicians throughout Central Indiana.
Our mission? To support Community Health Network’s commitment to improve the health of the communities we serve.
All operating expenses of the Foundation are covered by Community Health Network, while generous sponsors fund the overhead costs of our annual fundraising event The Giving Gig. Thanks to this support, 100 percent of all donations made to Community Health Network Foundation benefit patients and help to fulfill the mission of Community Health Network.
From behavioral health and cancer care to women’s, children’s and senior services, donors to the Foundation support programs that benefit a wide range of Community patients. For donors who commit to sharing a recurring monthly gift, we offer a partnership in our Mission Team. This team helps to provide the firm foundation to allow Community to continue to provide excellent healthcare for all and receives regular updates and invitations to special events throughout the year. Take the next step and join our Mission Team today.
