Caring for today. Preparing for tomorrow.
Our mission is to lead the way to better healthcare for Rooks County.
Established in 1990 as a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation, the Rooks County Healthcare Foundation conducts various fundraising activities each year to improve the health and care of those served by the health entities of Rooks County. All contributions are tax deductible as allowed by law.
The Rooks County Healthcare Foundation is headed by a Board of Directors that consist of area leaders from various communities in our service area. The Foundation Board has the responsibility for governing the Foundation's policy making, financial management and fund development activities. This group of volunteers, with a diverse background in medicine, education, banking, farming, insurance and business lend their expertise and dedication to furthering the mission of RCHF. Assisted by the Rooks County Health Center's Communication and Development Director and the Foundation's Executive Director, Kathy Ramsay, these volunteers receive no compensation for their time and talents.
Benefits to the Community
Rooks County Healthcare Foundation believes that people will make the difference. Children must be able to rely upon having a solid foundation for a healthy future. Senior citizens deserve to be treated with the dignity and respect that they have earned through a lifetime of hard work, which entitles them to high quality healthcare. Rooks County Healthcare Foundation is here to help make Rooks County a shining example of what a county can accomplish for its citizens when everyone pitches in!
The Foundation is a separate, not-for-profit corporation from Rooks County Health Center. Gifts to the Foundation are used as designated by the donor. Many gifts to the Foundation have been used to update the local hospital; other funds have been used to help a variety of health entities in Rooks County. The Foundation Board exercises prudent judgement in its stewardship responsibilities and assures donors that their gifts will be used exclusively for the purpose they designate, and will not be combined with RCH's operating funds. Donors are assured that information about their donations are handled with respect and confidentiality to the extent provided by law.
