Making a Gift to Lowell Community Health Center

Banner featuring donors

Health is a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.

—World Health Organization definition of health

Lowell Community Health Center derives only 76% of its income from fees and health insurance reimbursement. We must raise the remaining 24% through generous philanthropic contributions from individuals, corporations, and government and private foundations.

  • Your contribution to our annual WrapAround Fund — a key focus of our fundraising efforts — pays for vital services that are not covered by insurance, including medical interpretation; community health screenings and education; youth programming; and linking patients to jobs, shelter, food, and essential community services.
  • You can help create a healing canvas at Lowell CHC by participating in ArtUp. Through ArtUp, patrons can view an online catalogue of curated artwork at www.ArtUpLowell.com and may select paintings to purchase and donate to the health center for permanent display. Half of the purchase price supports our WrapAround Fund. The other half goes to pay the artists.

You may make a gift securely online or by check, mailed to:
