spring 2019
Welcome to your first issue of Impact Update 2019!

I’m excited to kick off 2019 with this new issue because it has a number of stories that demonstrate the many ways your partnership is saving and changing lives in our community.

From a Community-sponsored off-Broadway hit shining its spotlight on our Zero Suicide Initiative to a chance to meet one of your youngest donor colleagues (who is 7!), you’ll read how your support is helping Community Health Network Foundation improve the health and quality of life for people in Indianapolis and across Central Indiana.

Thank you for making a gift now because your generosity makes it all possible for everyone in need of help and hope to receive exceptional care, delivered with compassion.

Wishing you the gift of good health,

Bente Weitekamp
Vice President of Development
