Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our goal is to generate and invest resources to improve the health of our community. We give scholarships to nursing local nursing students and strive to grant funds to high impact programs that support community health and wellness. We remain a champion for Ashland's hospital.

Strategies include funding scholarships for nursing students who intend to remain in the Rogue Valley after graduation, as well as allied health scholarships for medical assistants, dental assistants, phlebotomists, etc. We also seek to fund high impact community health and wellness programs, including our local hospital.

Ashland Community Health Foundation has three professional staff with more than 40 years of combined fundraising experience. The foundation is governed by a Board of Directors comprised of community members with diverse business experience and community connections.

In 2022, our foundation granted over $229,000 to local nonprofit organizations that created and expanded access to health and wellness programs in Ashland, Talent, and Phoenix.

In addition, the Williams G. & Ruth T. Evans Endowed Nursing Scholarship awarded $233,094 in scholarships to 41 local nursing students.

ACHF supported Asante Ashland Community Hospital programs and services through grants of over $279,000.
