Because of You


Do you have additional questions about the Mount Carmel Foundation? If so, here are answers to some of our most common inquiries.

How do I 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. External organizations are not eligible for funding.

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 meet our donors’ intent.

What are my rights as a Mount Carmel Foundation donor?

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 a Donor Bill of Rights, which you can review for our policies and promises related to your donation.

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

We greatly appreciate your interest in hosting an event or other activity to raise funds to 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 us with any questions regarding ways you can raise money to benefit the Foundation.
