Welcome - Charitable Giving
HealthReach Community Health Centers (HRCHC) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit healthcare organization. We depend on the generosity of individuals, families, corporations and foundations to ensure our continued excellence in delivering family health care to Maine citizens and visitors. Since opening our first community health center in 1975, we have received a number of generous grants from federal, state and private sources as well as contributions from individual donors. These have enabled us to offer an Affordable Care Program to those who qualify, as well as to initiate a variety of outreach and education services - parenting programs, dental services, domestic peace initiatives and health education programs.
With eleven community health centers in over eighty rural communities of central and western Maine, stretching from Bingham to Richmond and Bethel to Coopers Mills, HealthReach Community Health Centers (HRCHC) proudly provides quality, compassionate health care to the 29,000 individuals and families who seek and receive medical care at our facilities each year, regardless of their ability to pay.
With your help, we will continue pushing the boundaries of compassionate care - improving the lives of children, adults and families. Your generosity is needed now more than ever, as the requirements of our patients continue to grow, while insurance and government supports decline. In this rapidly changing and increasingly difficult healthcare environment, donation are essential to fund patient service improvements, technology, patient education and community health programs.
In order to provide a high level of quality healthcare services to our communities, leadership interest and generous gift support are ongoing requirements. HRCHC relies on donors like you to help create a place of healing and hope for all residents in your community, including those without health insurance. We rely on the philanthropic support of our communities to help us in our mission in providing the best possible medical care that is affordable and close to home.
We welcome your interest in making a charitable donation. Contributing to HealthReach is the best way to support our exceptional primary care services, which are available to residents and visitors of all ages. However you choose to support HRCHC, you will be embarking on a partnership with an organization committed to exceptional, affordable health care for your family and neighbors in local Maine communities.
In 1975, when the local private physician in Bingham retired, community members envisioned a community medical facility for all residents. They worked together with their neighbors to raise funds for the renovation of an old house, which was converted into a community health center. And Bingham Area Health Center was launched. This first center in the HRCHC system began serving seven patients on its first day of operation. Today, thirty-nine years later, eleven community health centers of HRCHC provide medical care, preventive services and much more to 29,000 patients of all ages each year.
HRCHC's need for philanthropic support continues to grow, just as the challenge to improve quality while reducing costs continues unabated. Your gift will help HRCHC continue to provide vital health care services effectively, efficiently, and at the highest quality possible.
No matter which way you choose to support HealthReach Community Health Centers, we will honor and protect your investment through our adherence to the nationally recognized Donor Bill of Rights. Contributions to HealthReach Community Health Centers are tax deductible under Internal Revenue Service (IRS) rules.
