The CHWC Employee Philanthropy Program (EPP) is made up of and led by CHWC staff, and it supports 501(c)(3) organizations from the CHWC service area who help with health, food, housing and safety needs. The EPP also assists employees and their families who are facing a sudden, unexpected financial need.
Since the inception of the CHWC EPP, we have granted over $172,000 to area organizations and CHWC families!
On average, over 100 employees donate to the fund, and the CHWC Board of Directors provides a dollar-for-dollar match for all funding that staff brings in during pledge drives.
Our Employee Philanthropy Program (EPP) grants funding to tax-exempt organizations operating or proposing to operate programs that benefit residents within CHWC’s service area, which is composed of Williams, Fulton, Defiance and Henry counties in Ohio.
Some examples of financial support priorities include programming for youth, older adults, community social services, community health and wellness, community mental health and community disease prevention.

Eligible Individuals & Families
The EPP makes grants to individuals who are current or future employees and volunteers of CHWC as well as their spouses, children and other dependents. There is no restriction to only those employees who are currently contributing (or have previously contributed) to the EPP fund. Every effort will be made at all times to ensure that funds are granted in a manner that is open, transparent, objective, nondiscriminatory and by methods that are uniformly applied to potential recipients to ensure recipients are undergoing a hardship and are legitimately in need of assistance.
