Community Health Charities of Nebraska
We are raising awareness and improving lives for those facing chronic disease, disabilities, and end-of-life issues. Most importantly, we connect people with health charities they are passionate about and give meaning and purpose to our supporters. Funding charities. Changing lives.
CHAD (Combined Health Agencies Drive) is a local, donor-designation driven organization that has been raising funds for Nebraska's premier health charities for more than four decades. Valuable donations help Nebraskans in need by providing care and support for those affected by a health diagnosis; funding education and prevention programs in our communities; and supporting advocacy and medical research. Donors who give during our annual statewide campaign ensure our 22 member charities are funded on a consistent basis, and 100% of donor-designated dollars go directly to full-member charities.
What We Do
• Promote employee engagement and wellness through workplace partnerships and connect them with health causes they care about.
• Engage our volunteers, including Board members and stakeholders, to take action in our communities.
• Award Curt Gordon Memorial CHAD Foundation grants to our member charities every year to fund direct support for health programs whose impact is vital to individuals and the community.
• Raise funds for member charities and grow agency impact so they can:
o provide care and support programs for those affected by chronic disease, disabilities and end-of-life issues.
o fund education and prevention programs in our communities.
o support advocacy and medical research efforts.
