Dove Healthcare Community Foundation
Providing Grants for Senior Programs

The Dove Healthcare Community Foundation has a special interest in programs, services, projects, and events that aim to support and enhance the lives of those 55+, including Veterans and those with a chronic or complex health condition or rehabilitative need.

Dove Healthcare Community Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization committed to providing grants to programs that support seniors living in Eau Claire, Chippewa Falls, Rice Lake, Barron, Bloomer, Osseo, and surrounding communities.

Launched in the winter of 2017, the foundation is made possible thanks to Dove Healthcare, as well as sponsors and public donors. Established in 1997, Dove Healthcare supports programs and organizations that improve the overall quality of life in the communities in which our employees, residents, and families work and live. With a tradition of giving back to the community through financial contributions, volunteer hours, and leadership roles on boards and councils, the Dove Healthcare Community Foundation is an extension of our mission and an opportunity to grow our outreach in the community.

How to Give

Help us make a difference with grants supporting programs for seniors living in Eau Claire, Chippewa Falls, Rice Lake, Barron, Bloomer, and Osseo.

Support local non-profits and public programs in their efforts to make a difference in the lives of seniors, Veterans, hospice patients, and those with a chronic or complex health condition. Your donation will help the Foundation award grants to Veterans, seniors, and other qualifying organizations two times a year.

Recognize an exceptional caregiver who went above and beyond for you or your loved one. We believe all employees and all departments have a role in caregiving. Whether it was a housekeeper that went out of the way to make your day shine, a cook that prepared an extra special meal or someone special in nursing that was there for you right when you needed it most, consider honoring them with a donation to the Dove Healthcare Community Foundation. The caregiver will receive a special letter to inform them a gift has been made in their honor.

Make a gift in honor or in memory of a loved one as an accolade to their life and legacy. Your gift will be recognized with a receipt letter, and with your permission, an acknowledgment letter will be sent to the honoree or family of the remembered.

Make a donation to the Education Fund and support classes aimed at growing the healthcare workforce. Learn More.

We accept gifts of cash, check, or secure online giving via PayPal or credit card. If you prefer to mail in a cash or check donation, please mail to:
