Established in 1983, the Health Foundation strives to leverage donations from our generous community members to work towards a common goal; building a healthy community. We raise money through donations in memory of loved ones, gifts from grateful patients, donations from the community in general, MCMC’s employee giving campaign, special appeals, grants and events.


Each year the Mid-Columbia Health Foundation hosts three signature events. We strive to use the businesses within our community to carry out our events; utilizing caterers, printers, retail establishments and event rental space. Each event is an opportunity to join us in our goal of building a healthy community. We welcome donors, event participants, volunteers and sponsors to contact us at 541-296-7275 or email mchf@mcmc.net.
