Jackson County Health Foundation
The Jackson County Health Foundation exists to promote and support the Jackson County Regional Health Center in providing life-sustaining healthcare. Through philanthropic (financial) support, the Foundation will help to sustain programs and services essential to our community’s health and well-being.
The Foundation’s long-range goal is to help fund programs and service areas that are essential to the health of our community. The Foundation does this by providing financial support through the procurement and management of gifts, bequests and grants.
The Jackson County Health Foundation is a non-profit organization established in 1981 by business and community leaders to encourage financial support for Jackson County Regional Health Center and select community health initiatives.
A community board of directors provides direction for long range planning, encouragement of gifts and guardianship of gift funds. The Foundation’s overall intent is to support a strong local healthcare system and to improve and enhance the health of the communities we serve through the identification and support of specific healthcare needs.
The Foundation encourages gifts through a variety of means, including special events (annual golf outing), memorial, annual and planned giving. Through the support of the community, the Foundation is able to fund equipment, scholarships and services to patients, employees and members of the community.
