Thank You for giving a virtual hug to those in need in your community

More than a year into the pandemic, we saw how important virtual hugs could be. Your support allowed us to give a boost to families and individuals who suddenly found themselves in need of medicine, access to healthcare, transportation to appointments, and mental health counseling. Watch video below.

The CGH Health Foundation’s long-standing health initiatives were so crucial in helping families facing urgent and everyday situations. You took action with your hearts, spreading goodness and hope into the lives of others. Know that your support sent a message of hope and healing to those who needed an extra hug.

You've Got a Friend initiative for good

Together, we have been so successful in impacting the lives of 597,000 children and adults since 1987. But our work is not done.

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.
