Our Mission:


Securing financial resources to help the DCH Health System provide the best possible care to the people we serve.


The DCH Foundation

We continue to strive for excellence and raise the bar. When we come together in philanthropy, we create a positive force that offers the greatest hope for a better healthcare future for every person, every family – EVERY DAY.


Our Impact

Our community is strong and vibrant, and together we will carry on our efforts to help our patients in need. The DCH Foundation continues to work closely with the DCH Health System to address health care challenges through our Joint Board Task Force, comprised of leaders from the Foundation and Health System boards. Their love for this community and desire for our health system’s excellence ensures your generosity will have the greatest possible impact on the patients we treat – whether they are your friends, family, or neighbors you just haven’t met yet
