Our new grant program seeks to transform the way our community addresses compelling health issues.

We highly encourage nonprofit collaboration!

About Memorial Health Fund

Previously, MHF was a supporting organization of Memorial Hospital. After Memorial Hospital was bought by Community Health Systems, Memorial Health Fund began to look for a partner to help it carry out its charitable purposes. In 2015, we became a supporting organization of York County Community Foundation.

All grantmaking decisions will be made by the MHF board of directors.
