A little more about us

Community Health Network Foundation is the not-for-profit philanthropic organization of Community Health Network, a non-profit health system with over 100 sites of care and affiliates throughout Central Indiana. Our mission is to raise financial support for the network to improve the health of the communities we serve.

Funds raised by our donors contribute to the benefit of connected, convenient, coordinated care. Those donor contributions allow us to support health care scholarships, clinical research, community development, school-based clinics and the delivery of innovative health care through technology and state-of-the-art facilities.

We are the steward of Community Health Network’s culture of philanthropy that began in 1951 when a group of east side Indianapolis residents decided to build a hospital based on community principles and with community dollars. They embarked on what the East Side Herald called “the swiftest, most effective fundraiser of our time,” collecting nickels, dimes and other donations from donors believing in a worthy cause. Those values and that same spirit of fundraising are alive today, in our name and in our work.
