Give a VIRTUAL HUG to those in need in your community

Now, more than ever, when we can’t even hug each other, we can still give a virtual hug to those in need. As the coronavirus continues to affect millions worldwide, it’s children and families living in poverty who are most at risk.

Shocks like the loss of income or sudden illness compound the crisis. That’s why the CGH Health Foundation’s
long-standing health initiatives are so crucial in helping aid families facing urgent situations.

Visit to help your neighbors, friends and family during these difficult times and beyond…because wherever you are in the Sauk Valley…we will be there! Download a pledge card by clicking here.

Your support will allow us to give a boost to families and individuals who suddenly find themselves in need of medicine, access to healthcare, transportation to appointments, and mental health counseling.

No one knows what a future with COVID-19 will look like. We need to be ready. We are asking folks to take action with their hearts, to spread some goodness, some hope into the lives of others. Know that your support will send a message of hope and healing to someone who could use an extra hug.

Be that friend with a heart for good

Just like the creative heart displays you’ve seen everywhere, in homes, businesses and on vehicles, you can be that friend with a heart for good.

Together, we have been so successful in impacting the lives of 535,000 children and adults since 1987. But our work is not done. Make a heartfelt contribution to fund life changing services which so many folks need now during the pandemic.

When it comes to charitable donations, most people want to ensure that the funds they donate support real work that helps their community. When you donate to the CGH Health Foundation, you'll know that your money is going to an organization you can trust. Check out our year-end report card on who our donors have helped.

Your support is crucial to carrying out life-changing health initiatives.
