Our Work

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 how Community was founded on philanthropy to testimonials from grateful patients recently impacted by Foundation programs and services, our storybook brings to life the work happening thanks to the generosity of donors across Central Indiana.
