The Lake Chelan Community Hospital Foundation has changed its name to the Lake Chelan Health & Wellness Foundation. The strategy in the decision to re-brand is an expectation for greater visibility within the community, and increased donors and donations.
“This is an incredibly generous community, and there are many ‘good causes’ to consider when donating,” said Dale Hoisington, Foundation Board President. “We are grateful for the generosity our donors show to us, and it’s our hope that our new brand will attract even more donors. We invite you to our new website: www.LCHealthWellness.com.”
The role of philanthropy for Lake Chelan Health & Wellness Foundation is a critical component in meeting many needs for the hospital and community. The Foundation’s mission is to “promote healthcare services and wellness initiatives for the Lake Chelan Valley.”
The new name aligns with this mission, with the hospital continuing to be the Foundation’s “Number One Customer.” Outreach to the community also aligns with national efforts and the hospital’s efforts to increase mindful awareness of healthy living options for all.
Just recently, your generous donations were used to:
1. Help 18 Morgen Owings Elementary (MOE) girls participate in the Girls on the Run program.
2. Purchase equipment for the new MOE Playground Project
3. Partner with Manson High School for a 78-day Community Health Challenge
4. Sponsor Thrive Chelan Valley’s “Empowered to Connect” simulcast
5. Sponsor the recent KOZI Water Safety Campaign.
These are just a few mentions of the positive impact we make in the Lake Chelan Valley in partnering with you, our community.
Foundation Board members assure that they are working hard to merit your confidence and continue to make you proud that you support the Foundation’s efforts.
