HE MISSION OF CHI HEALTH FOUNDATION is to nurture the healing ministry of the Church, supported by education and research. Fidelity to the Gospel urges us to emphasize human dignity and social justice as we create healthier communities.

The CHI Health Foundation was formed to raise awareness and manage and distribute funds to support of the mission of CHI Health. We bring together the needs of our patients with the generosity of CHI Health employees, individuals, corporations, foundations, physicians, and volunteers. We foster relationships that result in caring people making financial gifts to transform the lives of those in need. The CHI Health Foundation strengthens health care in our community and the region by facilitating supportive relationships with individuals, corporations and foundations interested in advancing the CHI Health mission of healing the body, mind and spirit of every person. As a not-for-profit organization, CHI Health Foundation reinvests all revenue beyond the operational expenses in our healthcare system, to enhance programs and service for our patients across the region: • SANE Program: In FY 2018, the program treated nearly 400 individuals in the Omaha metro who were survivors of sexual assault, domestic violence and human trafficking. • Helping Those in Crisis: Partnering with schools and law enforcement, we helped develop local coalitions in nine different communities to develop local plans to address behavioral health services and reduce the stigma around mental health issues. After two years, 4,904 participants from 173 organizations are now more prepared to respond to those in crisis or those experiencing mental health or substance use issues. • Alzheimer’s: CHI Health partnered with the Alzheimer’s Association Nebraska Chapter to support the MedicAlert + Safe Return program that provides families and loved ones with identification jewelry for free. CHI Health also funds free care consultations that help families navigate decisions and uncertainties at different stages of the disease.

GIVING OPPORTUNITIES: CHI Health Foundation is appreciative of financial support to assist with the needs of health care in our community. Gifts may include:

• Individual Giving • Memorials / Tributes / Honorariums • Corporate Sponsorships & Partnerships • Event Sponsorships • Endowment & Planned Giving • Silent Auction & Live Auction Item Donations COMMUNITY OPPORTUNITIES: Earn Your Scrubs Earn your Scrubs is a community outreach program the Foundation started in 2013 in an effort to build our pipeline of ambassadors, donors and future volunteers. These events are held twice a year at each hospital and community leaders are nominated to attend. We introduce them to our hospital leadership and physicians and give them behind-the-scenes education experiences. To date, 448 corporate and community leaders have graduated from this program. At the end of the day, participants receive a pair of scrubs.
