The CCHF is a private foundation. It is run by a volunteer board of community members. The Board of Directors oversees the investment and funds programs.
For nearly a half century Canton Connecticut area patients and patrons of the former Canton VNA donated generously to the Canton Memorial Fund. When CVNA merged with McLean that memorial fund was bequeathed to the newly formed not for profit Canton Community Health Fund. The sole purpose of the CCHF is promoting the health and well being to all Canton residents by distributing grants to a wide array of nonprofit organizations contributing to our goals.
