Community Health Charities of Connecticut is committed to serving the health needs of Connecticut residents.  Community Health Charities’ participating charities:

  • Afford Connecticut residents a wide range of essential programs and services

  • Give support and information to families
  • Deliver prevention and wellness education in workplaces, schools and communities
  • Support ground-breaking medical research, much of which is conducted at Yale University, Wesleyan University and the University of Connecticut

Donor Driven

  • Employees want the ability to choose which charitable causes their dollars fund
  • True donor choice exists when options are clearly presented to each donor
  • The donor directs giving: donor designations to full member charities are honored 100 percent
  • Overall giving to the workplace campaign increases when employees have more choice
