Help Our Kids Thrive
Children in our community are suffering not only from the isolation they endured during the COVID pandemic, but many are also suffering from the effects of the Almeda Fire. As part of our Patrons Campaign this year, we are asking our community to join us and invest to Help Our Kids Thrive. The initiative will support the Ashland and Phoenix-Talent School Districts’ summer programs, including the expansion of the School Nurse Program. Read more…
Asante Ashland Community Hospital
Ashland Community Hospital Foundation has been a champion for AACH since 1977. We understand the value of having expert care close to home when you need it most. Contributions will be used to support the general needs of AACH, or the hospital department or program most meaningful to you. For example, Diagnostic Imaging, Emergency Services, Family Birth Center, Inpatient Care, School Nurse Program, and Surgical Services are all areas where your gift can have an impact. Rest assured gifts will stay in our community and directly benefit our local hospital.
Community Health Initiatives
The focus on community health (population health) is changing when, where and how healthcare is delivered. Prevention and wellness are becoming even bigger priorities and partnerships are more important than ever.
Ashland Community Hospital Foundation is reimagining how we can impact the health of our community by expanding our reach beyond our local hospital. Gifts will be used to support health-related projects, primarily in Ashland and Talent.
As the delivery of care in the United States transforms, we believe this is an exciting time in healthcare. A greater emphasis is being placed on affordability, equity, quality, safety and the patient experience.
To prepare for the future and promote the health of the whole community we have a Healthcare Innovation Fund. We want to have the resources at the ready to move quickly and strategically to support innovative approaches to care. Your investment will help shape the future of healthcare in our community.
William G. & Ruth T. Evans Endowed Nursing Scholarship
The Evans Endowed Nursing Scholarship was established in 2002 through the generous contribution of Mrs. Ruth T. Evans. The scholarship supports registered nursing students enrolled at Rogue Community College (RCC) and Oregon Health Science University, Ashland Campus.
In addition, graduates of the Licensed Practical Nursing Program at RCC receive scholarships to cover their licensing and exam fees so they can move quickly into the workforce.
Nurses are essential. A nursing degree is expensive and often students graduate thousands of dollars in debt. With your investment we can support nursing students now and into the future.
Sustainability Fund of Ashland Community Hospital Foundation (ACHF)
We have operated as an independent 501c3 charitable organization throughout our history. During that time our prudent board of directors and staff have guided the foundation to a position of financial strength.
As our foundation grows in new and innovative directions a primary goal is to maintain our long-term sustainability. Contributions will ensure the important work of supporting healthcare needs in our community will continue for years to come.
If you would like to make an inspirational gift to support one of our current giving opportunities, or learn more about how you can partner with Ashland Community Hospital Foundation to improve the health of your community, please call us at (541) 482-0367.
