Why Give

Philanthropy is crucial to the mission of Boulder Community Health. It’s impact for BCH as a community hospital gives BCH leaders the ability to respond quickly to community needs. According to Dr. Rob Vissers, CEO of BCH “Our vision is to create and care for the healthiest community in the nation. That’s the expectation of our community, and we think it’s achievable. Currently, with the support of our board, we believe that independence is the best strategy for us to achieve that vision. When we have looked at options outside of being independent, what we find is it moves of further away from our vision, not closer to it.” Nothing says it better. As a partner with BCH through your selfless giving we are assured of achieving our mission.

Loyal donors like Sandy and Sally Bracken see their role as philanthropists by answering the question “What other institution has such a direct impact on our lives than a community hospital?” That’s what motivated their giving. When you ask yourself that same question, we hope that you’ll join so many others who believe in the value of BCH to you and our entire community.

The BCH Foundation exists to enhance the quality and availability of heath care services in Boulder and Broomfield Counties by generating and administering charitable gifts to our nonprofit, community-owned hospital and health system. With the continued generous support of our community, the foundation granted nearly $5 million to BCH in 2020.
