Ways To Give

Why Give?

As the need for healthcare grows ever stronger, the resources needed to provide it has grown more limited due to reduced reimbursements, workforce shortages and an aging population.

Fulfillment of Columbus Community Hospital's commitment to serve the community requires tremendous resources. Fundraising and gifts to the hospital help provide the resources needed for Columbus Community Hospital to continue with quality healthcare now and for years to come.


You can contribute by check, credit card or electronic fund transfer. Please make checks payable to CCH Foundation. Memorials Given in memory of a loved one, memorial gifts are an appropriate expression of your sympathy to grieving families.

Tribute Gift

A tribute gift is also a wonderful way to share some of the joy in life, such as an anniversary, birthday, retirement or new birth. Endowment Funds Funds contributed to the endowment are invested and the return on the investment will be used to provide for the needs of the hospital. The original funds will never be spent.
