The Foundation was founded in 1997. Since that time CACHF has awarded over $4.8 million in:
1- Scholarships – Effective with the 2016/2017 school year Calumet Area Community Health Foundation is putting our High School scholarship program on hold as we instead focus resources on tuition reimbursement efforts for Calumet Medical Center new hires in areas of critical need, as well as funding our $3,000,000 pledge for the recent renovation of CMC. The High School Scholarship program may resume at a future date.
2- Grants to Non-profit organizations who provide aid in the Health related industry
The Foundation is administered by a local Board of Directors made up of women and men from this geographical area.
If you are located in the Calumet County, WI area, I invite you to move around in the website to see if you qualify for either a College Scholarship or Health Care Grant. Eligibility requirements and applications can be found under the tabs above.
Remember, deadlines for submitting applications are listed in the eligibility requirements and are strictly adhered to.
