Community Initiatives Funding | Norton Healthcare Louisville, Ky.

Community Initiatives Funding

Norton Healthcare is a not-for-profit, charitable, tax-exempt 501(c)(3) private corporation. Our mission is to provide quality health care services based on community need and consistent with our faith-based heritage.

To further our mission and maintain our not-for-profit status, we invest resources in other not-for-profit organizations in our community. These organizations must meet one or more specific criteria relative to community benefit and outreach.

Our two philanthropic foundations, the Children’s Hospital Foundation and Norton Healthcare Foundation, support initiatives within our organization. The Norton Healthcare Foundation raises funds and awareness for Norton Healthcare’s adult-service facilities and service lines, including Norton Women’s Care, Norton Cancer Institute, Norton Neuroscience Institute, Norton Heart Care and others. The Children’s Hospital Foundation, the fundraising arm of Norton Children’s Hospital, supports and raises awareness for pediatric programs and services as well as workforce, research and facility enhancements at Norton Children’s Hospital and its sister facilities.

The following individuals, organizations and events are not eligible for funding through Norton Healthcare:

  • Individuals
  • Community foundations
  • Organizations that discriminate against race, gender or creed
  • Religious organizations or activities that are denominational or sectarian in purpose and do not have broad community benefit
  • “Brick and mortar” capital projects or initiatives
  • Support that requires ongoing or long-term funding (e.g., establishing personnel positions) when such sustained funding sources are not identified
