Artisans Celebration 2024

Wild and Wonderful

Artisans Celebration 2024: Wild and Wonderful is a collaborative project under the umbrella of the MHN Foundations.

A Family of Healthcare Foundations

There is an intricate relationship between a trio of lifestyle qualities: good health, happiness, and hope. When our health fails, the other elements in this delicate balance suffer.

The MHF Foundations spans seven organizations connected to the hospitals and healthcare entities that make up the Marshall Health Network. These foundations use the MHF identifier to avoid confusion with Marshall University, which maintains a separate foundation. The MHF group includes the Cabell Huntington Hospital Foundation, the St. Mary’s Medical Center Foundation, the Rivers Health Foundation, the Rivers Health Scholarship Foundation, FaithHealth Appalachia, PROACT, and Project Hope.

Regardless of their individual name, all members of the MHF Foundations are committed to improving the health and well-being of more than one million children and adults in the 23 county-region in West Virginia, southern Ohio, and eastern Kentucky we call Central Appalachia.

Through our Foundations, we provide the means for friends like you to play a role in helping meet the unique needs of the residents of our region. Through a variety of special programs and the unique missions of the MHN Foundations, you can play a significant role in the lives of individuals and families who need exceptional medical care, from birth to the end of life and through all the complications in between.

How You Make a Difference

There is no greater feeling than knowing your contribution matters. That you have made a difference. While there are a great many causes that are dependent upon financial support, there is nothing – nothing – that provides greater satisfaction than knowing you have made a significant difference in people’s lives.

As you invest your personal and financial resources in one of the Marshall Health Network Foundations, you impact those we currently serve and those who will be dependent upon help like yours in the coming years.

Author and philanthropist Wanda Henderson sums this up beautifully:

 “The seeds that we sow will continue to touch lives because the ripple effect of goodness is multiplied many times as the years go by.”

Stories of Changed Lives

Changed lives is what our Foundations are all about!

We exist to help people get the medical care they need and to empower people like you to do things in their community that make a difference for people in need of help.

Now you can read about our friends, patients, and co-workers who are thriving and making a difference in the world around them.
