Chairman's Council

Honoring the Spirit of Philanthropy

The Chairman's Council is a special philanthropic society established by the
Trustees of the ECHN Community Healthcare Foundation to honor the outstanding commitment of individual donors and couples who give $1,000* or more annually to support healthcare in eastern Connecticut.

Through your generous contribution, we can make a real and tangible difference in enhancing the quality of local healthcare - and quality of life - for all the residents of our community. The Chairman's Council is our way of saying thank you to these very special friends.

* not including event registrations, tickets, sponsorships, or auction purchases


Helping to Build our Future

Your contribution will benefit the ECHN Community Healthcare Foundation's unrestricted fund, serving the greatest needs of our patients. These gifts are disbursed appropriately for expansion, program enhancement and new services including:

  • medical equipment purchases
  • program enhancements
  • new healthcare services & programs
  • other improvements designed to meet and anticipate the changing needs of our fast-growing population.

Providing high-quality healthcare offers many challenges. Traditional methods of care are giving way to innovative new approaches. As healthcare providers, we must be able to remain responsive and creative in finding new and better solutions to complex medical needs.

With an annual commitment comes a special level of recognition as a member of the Chairman's Council and an integral philanthropic supporter of our local healthcare system. In gratitude and appreciation for your vital and generous support, members are provided a number of special privileges.

The Benefits You'll Receive

  • Celebration of Giving and Annual Meeting invitation
  • Recognition listing in the Annual Report
  • Annual President's Report

Membership and benefits apply during each fiscal year, October 1 through September 30.
