As an active member of the community, Lake Cumberland Regional Hospital supports many organizations through monetary and in-kind donations annually. It is the policy of LCRH to contribute to activities, organizations and causes in the Lake Cumberland region that align with our mission of Making Communities Healthier.
The goal of these new guidelines is to focus Lake Cumberland Regional Hospital’s support on the following areas:
- Primary: organizations that promote health and wellness
- Secondary: organizations that support children, youth, and education
In evaluation of sponsorship opportunities, priority will be given to organizations that are aligned with the areas listed above. Further priority will be given to organizations where LCRH employees serve as board members, advisory committee members, event chairs and/or active and engaged volunteers.
Only 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations, 501(c)(4) social welfare organizations, and 501(c)(6) business leagues will be considered for charitable contributions, sponsorships, volunteer support, or in-kind donations.
The following exclusions may apply:
- Requests from religious organizations for sectarian purposes will not be considered; however, a community program sponsored by a religious organization will be considered (e.g., food pantry).
- LCRH will not support organizations that discriminate on the basis of age, sex, race, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, or disability with respect to employment, volunteer participation, or the provision of services.
- Financial requests for capital campaigns or activities that do not advance our public or corporate purpose will not be considered.
