Mt. Pleasant Area Community Foundation

For good. For ever.

Our mission is to enhance the quality of life for all citizens of Isabella County, now and for generations to come, by attracting and holding permanent endowed funds from a wide range of donors, addressing needs through grant making and providing leadership on key community issues.

Central Michigan Community Hospital Fund

Our community has given its full support to Central Michigan Community Hospital for more than 60 years, and has seen the benefits of that support continue to grow over time. In 1940, residents of Isabella county came together to raise more than $65,000 which then led to a $225,000 grant secured by the Reverend Charles MacKenzie to fund the opening of the new hospital. The hospital officially opened in 1943, and has since seen the spirit of philanthropy among residents grow even more over the years.

In 1997, the governing board for CMCH approved the creation of the Central Michigan Community Hospital Endowed Fund. This fund provides an additional opportunity for the community to support the mission of the hospital in perpetuity. CMCH has experienced extraordinary local involvement in the past and knows the Fund will allow the hospital to experience continued growth and will help CMCH better serve the community that gave it life.
