The Buchanan County Health Trust (BCHT) is closing out the 2016 year in positive reflection. Founded in 1989, the BCHT is a nonprofit organization exclusively for charitable, education, and scientific purposes which benefit or support the medical and health care for persons within Buchanan County. Granting over $500,000 to several nonprofit organizations in Buchanan County since its inception, 2016 has continued to show great sustainability for the organization, granting over $15,000 to county organizations including Kidsville Early Learning Center, Buchanan County Health Center, Buchanan County EMS Association, Area Ambulance, and more. In November, the Health Trust held its 19th Annual Dinner & Auction, raising over $11,000 in auction items alone.
Tax deductible contributions made to the BCHT become invested and the income therefrom used, after payment of necessary expenses, is distributed to community organizations who request funding for equipment, education, and/or training; aiding their mission of community-wide healthcare.
The BCHT is currently accepting grant request applications for the 2017 year. The Health Trust reviews grant requests twice a year, with form completion deadlines of January 15th of 2017 and June 15th of 2017.
