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.

2019 Prescription: Strength

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

At our recent Prescription: Strength fundraising luncheon, we shared the significant impact of our essential, integrated mental health services. This free event shares stories of care and a vision for the future of our communities. A request for support is made each year, raising funds supporting our mission to ensure access to comprehensive, holistic health care for the most vulnerable among us. The response from these friends of Cherry Health Foundation is always incredible! The message of hope and health that Cherry Health offers resonates with many.
