Do you have additional questions about the Mount Carmel Foundation? If so, here are answers to some of our most common inquiries. If your question isn’t addressed here, please contact the Foundation at 614-546-4500.

Who can apply for funding from Mount Carmel Foundation?

The Foundation accepts funding requests for program and service initiatives that benefit Mount Carmel patients, their families and members of the central Ohio community who are served by Mount Carmel Health System. Funds are distributed quarterly through an allocations process determined by the Foundation’s Board of Trustees.

How do I know my contribution will be used for the specific program and/or service I earmarked it to?

We work diligently to see that your donation is used in the manner it was intended. To that end, our Allocations Committee, which is comprised of Foundation Trustees, conducts a quarterly allocations process to ensure we oblige our donors’ intent.

What are my rights as a Mount Carmel Foundation donor?

As a donor, you are the lifeblood of our organization and we are committed to responsible stewardship of the funds you contribute in support of Mount Carmel’s mission-driven programs and services. That’s why we’ve created this Donor Bill of Rights.

How can I become a Mount Carmel volunteer?

I’d like to host a fundraising event to benefit Mount Carmel. How should I proceed?

We greatly appreciate your interest and that of other individuals and groups in the community in hosting events and other activities to raise funds that benefit Mount Carmel.

Because we utilize raffles at our annual special events, additional raffles are prohibited through a law set forth by the Ohio Attorney General’s Office, which limits the number of raffles a non-profit 501 (c) 3 organization can hold annually. Please contact 614-546-4346 with any questions regarding this law and other ways can raise money to benefit the Foundation.
