The Coalition for Healthy Communities was founded in December 1995 as a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization. Your gift may be made as a restricted donation to support any of the following task forces:
- Community of Character
- Community Partnerships
- Community Wellness
- Substance Abuse Prevention
- Zion-Benton Leadership Academy
A detailed explanation of each task force’s mission and initiatives is explained in detail on the following pages. Each task force has a dedicated chairman and membership working diligently towards achieving clearly defined goals through events that are planned or in the planning process. Your donation will allow these task forces to expand and enhance their initiatives in order to touch the lives of even more people in need.
The CHC is also in need of unrestricted donations. While the energy, passion and effort of the Coalition members and partners is volunteer, there are tangible costs associated with providing the programs, events and forums to reach out to our communities. Since its founding, the CHC has been privileged to have been partially supported by Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA) at Midwestern Regional Medical Center (Midwestern). However, we need your financial support as expenses are on the rise as the number of task forces and their respective initiatives have grown.
