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 reentry 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 71,000 patients. 96% of our health center patients, 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 2017
On Wednesday, November 1, the Foundation hosted its seventh Cherry Health Celebration presented by Lighthouse Group and Prime Maintenance/Spidle Contracting. 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 this year’s Celebration honored our partnership with Legal Aid of Western Michigan and the legacy of Robert J. “Bob” Eleveld during the event attended by nearly 350 guests.
