About the Foundation
Cherry Health Foundation is the philanthropic arm of Cherry Health and its mission is to cultivate community awareness, trust and financial investment to ensure comprehensive, primary and behavioral health care is accessible for all, no matter income or insurance status.
Whether it is treatment for diabetes, dental care, vision, mental health counseling or community re-entry services, Cherry Health is the difference between sickness and health; despair and hope; barriers and opportunities. Cherry Health is committed to quantifiably assessing the impact of its services to continually improve health outcomes.
We need you to sustain this mission. Please make a donation and directly impact the lives of our nearly 70,000 patients. 97% of these individuals, for whom income data was obtained, are impoverished or below minimum wage.
Cherry Health Foundation is a nonprofit organization, as determined by Section 501(c) (3) in the Internal Revenue Code. Therefore, gifts are deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.
Cherry Health Celebration 2016
On Tuesday, October 25, the Foundation hosted its sixth Cherry Health Celebration presented by Cherry Orchard Sponsor Lighthouse Group. This annual tradition is a key fundraising event supporting Cherry Health’s mission to improve the health and wellness of the communities we serve. We are delighted to have honored Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital and Dr. Robert Connors, President during the event attended by nearly 300 guests.
