Community Health Charities of Arizona is a federation of America's premier health organizations that have joined together to raise charitable contributions in the workplace. Employee donations are used to support these member charities, such as March of Dimes Arizona Chapter and provide research, patient services and outreach in local communities. Employees designate the charity or charities where they want their
gifts directed and that is where they go.
By partnering with local employers, Community Health Charities of Arizona connects employees to health and wellness information, volunteer opportunities and the ability to direct donations to the local health charities of their choice. We currently provide access to more than 41 leading charities, encompassing almost every well-known disease or disability and many lesser-known ones.
The mission of Community Health Charities is to unite caring donors in the workplace with our nation’s most trusted health charities. The purpose is to raise funds on behalf of its member health charities through workplace payroll deduction campaigns - the most efficient and effective way of raising funds for charitable organizations. The affiliated health charities of Community Health Charities of Arizona are not United Way partner charities, which generally funds human and social service organizations, compared to our member health charities that are dedicated to finding a cause and cure for a specific illness, disability or disease.
