A special community cause
Each year, the Ashland Community Health Foundation Patrons Campaign focuses on the most pressing health care needs of our community.
This year, our Patrons Campaign is partnering with Rogue Community College (RCC) to provide scholarships to local students pursuing entry-level careers in health care.
With your gift, you can not only ensure health care professionals are there for you when you need them — you can also provide a pathway to success for those who would otherwise not be able to achieve their dreams.
Filling the gap
Right now, our community is facing an urgent and enduring need for caregivers.
Many young adults are drawn to careers where they can help others, but too often financial hardships make it impossible for them to achieve their dreams. And for many reasons, there is currently a gap for students who are seeking to begin entry-level careers in health care and available scholarship opportunities.
“These Allied Health programs will help people get into the workforce and at the patient’s side within a matter of months.”
– Karen Drescher, Board Member
Be here for them, they’ll be there for you
Imagine the impact you can have on a young person’s future, and on the delivery of care in our community. Your gift not only has the potential to change the course of an aspiring health care worker’s life, but also to help fill the dire need for local caregivers.
Currently, 100% of students who complete Rogue Community College’s Allied Health program enter the workforce immediately after receiving their certifications. The tuition assistance provided through this year’s Patrons Campaign will help make sure they can be here for you and your family when you need them.
Be part of our tradition of support
The foundation has a long history of providing scholarships to nursing students in the Rogue Valley, and now we’re expanding our support to help address the current workforce shortage.
Many scholarship recipients graduate and work at our local hospitals and clinics. You or a family member may have even been cared for by one of them.
Donate to the Patrons Campaign
We are excited to continue our tradition of supporting the health care needs of our community. Your gift provides scholarships for local students pursuing entry level medical careers, and will help fill open health care positions in our area.
