By supporting programs and services inside and outside the clinics, gifts to the Annual Fund help maintain the excellence for which JTCHF is known.

Individuals, Families, Corporations and Foundations may become donors.
Where does the money go?
A donor has the choice of where his or her contribution is directed – patients services, staff support, outreach programs, medical equipment purchases, facility expansion. An unrestricted gift to the Annual Fund is used to support the greatest needs of the organization.
Why is every Annual Fund gift important?
