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 76,000 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.

Prescription: Strength

On Wednesday, May 6, hundreds of Cherry Health Foundation supporters connected digitally to our annual spring fundraiser, Prescription: Strength.

Powered by our presenting sponsor, Priority Health, the event shared the work of our teams to serve our patients, many of them our frontline essential workers, in a dangerous time to be without. Through the support of sponsors, all donations through the event were matched!

Our community responded with incredible generosity. Over $90,000 was donated to offer patient access to care!
