Giving Back to Our Community

About Our Foundation


Mission

What Matters to Us

Our foundation has a simple mission - to improve the overall physical and emotional health of the underserved in Central Ohio.

Since inception, we have granted more than $900,000 to local charities in Central Ohio, but we don't want to stop there. Last year we donated over a total of $150,000 to local charities who further our mission. To help continue our efforts in helping make Central Ohio an even better place, we highly encourage you to support our foundation and help us give back to the community in which we live.


History

Our Beginning

Established on July 26th of 2007, our foundation was formed by our COPC Board of Directors, which consists of over 340 COPC providers that comprise over 65 medical practices throughout Central Ohio.

Our non-profit organization was created as a donor advised fund on the Columbus Foundation, in order to help serve the greater Central Ohio area in which our COPC physicians and specialists operate.


Goals

What We Want to Achieve

In order to achieve our foundation's goals, we continue to encourage and financially assist nonprofit organizations that further support our mission. Our initial grant-making priorities address the most crucial needs of the underserved such as food, shelter, clothing, and access to prescription drugs.

As our funding increases, we will expand our priorities to include those organizations that are involved in the treatment, prevention, and cure of disease states, and improvement in the overall health of the underserved of Central Ohio.


Achievements

Our Successes

Every year, our foundation has helped the underserved in our neighborhoods by donating to various charities that address critical needs such as food, shelter, prescription medicines, and access to quality health care.

In the past, our foundation has helped the American Diabetes Association, the March of Dimes, Faith Mission, LifeCare Alliance, and The Driven Foundation.
