NCH Foundation

Your Generosity Matters


Each year, donors contribute to over 100 different programs and services at NCH. Some make an unrestricted gift to support our overall mission, while others support a particular program or project of interest to them. Here are some of the many ways you can direct your support.


The General Fund

Unrestricted gifts are invested in the General Fund at NCH, providing the organization with flexibility to use them wherever the need is greatest, from supporting core services to investing in innovated new programs.


Giving to a Specific Department

If you or a loved one is grateful for the care a specific department within NCH provided, consider making a gift in honor of that department as a special way to say thank you.
