how to Get Involved

Contributions have been an invaluable way to leverage the gift that has been given to our community.  When you give to St. Joseph's Community Health Foundation the real winner        is the community.  With each passing year the number of requests for funds expands.  As the foundation sets goals for the future, we will need your support to help us realize our community's healthy future.  Our community's quality of life has a cost, but it is a price that can be attained with your help.  Our success is your success!

Donors are able to establish endowment funds to serve the needs of a cause they wish to help with. These funds are often established using your family name or the name of a loved one as a memorial or honorarium. $10,000.00 can establish a named fund at SJCHF. Foundation staff will be happy to discuss your specific interests with you. The assets are invested and managed by local banks and investment firms.

The Foundation uses the income generated from its endowment to provide grants to local tax-exempt charitable organizations. Community volunteers serve on the board and grants review committee. All grants are approved by the Foundation’s Board of Directors. Gifts of any size are welcomed. The Foundation’s status as a public charity offers you the maximum tax benefits.
