Charity Spotlight

Dear Friends,

 In 1965, the business community founded Combined Health Appeal of Connecticut (now Community Health Charities) as a cost-effective way for companies and employees to support the work of leading health charities.  That proved to be the right thing to do. Today, more than 700 Connecticut companies include Community Health Charities in their charitable workplace campaigns, and the number is growing.

Recent surveys have shown that now more than ever, health and healthcare costs are on the minds of corporate leaders throughout the country. Community Health Charities understands these concerns.  Through its support of 26 of Connecticut’s most trusted charitable health agencies, Community Health Charities:

  • Contributes to a healthier, more productive workforce
  • Reduces health care costs to business and the community
  • Fills critical needs not met by insurance or government programs
  • Strengthens families by helping them cope with the emotional and financial strain of health problems
  • Makes medical advances toward finding treatments and cures to benefit this generation and many to come.

Community Health Charities of Connecticut’s 34 Connecticut health charities serve local residents by offering prevention and early detection programs, treatment and support for patients and families and funding vital research for cures.  In addition, Community Health Charities provides workplace wellness programs to Connecticut companies at little or no cost, providing employees with important health information.  “Lunch & Learn” programs about specific health matters are an excellent “value-added” element to any company’s benefits.

We hope you will support our mission to enhance the health of people throughout Connecticut through financial and promotional support of some of Connecticut’s leading health charities.  Look for us at your company’s charitable giving campaign. We will put your gift to work for a healthy Connecticut.

Thank You.

Dean C. Borgman Chair of the Board

Betty Lee Taylor Hagerty President
